Taurine Testing Clinic 

October 9th, 6-8pm


Have you seen the FDA alert of a possible link between grain-free dog foods (especially those with a lot of peas) and a heart condition called dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).  This is scary and real.  Young, healthy dogs have died from this condition. There is little warning until it is too late.  The good news is caught early it has a very good chance of reversal.  The first step is to test the blood for taurine.  We are happy to offer this clinic to help you test your dog for a fraction of the cost of going to your vet as we are working directly with the lab.  Don't take a chance.  Schedule your test today!  Walk ins are welcome as space permits.
