“Your dog is dying of congestive heart failure”.  I have had to say this to too many clients.  There are several causes of congestive heart failure (CHF) but one now appears to be preventable.  The one we will discuss is due to a deficiency of taurine.  Proteins are comprised of amino acids, some essential, that is the body cannot manufacture them, others are non essential and the body can manufacture them from precursors. Taurine is a non essential amino acid therefore dog food manufactures do not add it to their product.  There are factors that can interfere with the absorption [...]

2018-11-17T17:07:11-07:00Friday, March 3, 2017|Comments Off on Pacific Expresso Riley MH QA2, owned by Mike and Carol O’Bannon

received a qualifying score at the 2016 Master National.  This is Riley’s second qualification.  He also qualified in 2014. Additionally, Mike and Carol’s other dog, Sierra Expresso Jack MH52, retired at this years Master National.  While Jack did not qualify at this years event it was the eighth straight year he had qualified for the Master National and the seventh straight year he went to the event.  Jack qualified twice, in 2010 and 2014.  A total homer, both qualifications were at Corning! A pretty nice career and a well deserved retirement.
