This month we want to remember Thea who passed away suddenly from dilated cardiomyopathy, most likely caused by a grain free diet. Thea, who would’ve turned 4 years old last week, was a ball of energy and excitement who was obsessed with playing fetch, snuggling her brother, Max, and dressing up for holiday photo shoots.
We are so excited that Roxy Sue was finally able to go home after 4 days in the ICU. Roxy Sue is only 3 years old and was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) most likely dietary related. She has been eating Kirkland Grain Free diet and developed coughing a week ago. She went to a local ER that took x-rays that showed a severely enlarged heart and fluid in her lungs. The ER immediately transferred her to EVS for further testing and treatment with our cardiology service.
