Good evening, Lately i am buying your company britcare sensitive food for my dog. As a veterinarian, I want to ask why the ingredients of the food do not indicate the percentage of taurine. Im asking because grain free foods according to research lead to DCM due to lack of taurine.

    Hallo, latest scientific opinion of FDA suggests, that reason of DCM are not grain-free foods, but foods with low content of animal ingredients. All our products contain at least 75% of animal proteins from all proteins of foods. That means, all our products are sufficient source of taurine. So far we have not seen any case of DCM in dogs fed our feeds But we know this situation. We will add taurine into our all new foods. Best regards Martin Kvas
