Remember the old days when grain free didnít exist and dogs lived long lives without problems ? There must be a reason.
So glad to hear that the switch to PPP Sensitive Skin and Stomach has gone well. I hear lots of good things about that formula.

When I took Miracle to her first vet appointment last year the vet asked what I was feeding her. I started her on Taste of the Wild (grain free), because that's what Jasper eats. The veterinary practice actually sells Royal Canin, but my vet told me to keep my dog on TOTW because she claimed it's actually a higher quality food as compared to Royal Canin. Miracle is due for her annual appointment soon....I am going to bring this topic up and see what the vet says.

Is there a specific research article that cites this? Thanks.

There are dozens of articles and research papers published on a facebook group called Taurine-deficient Dialeted Cardiomyopathy

If you join that group there is a section called UNITS where you can read research by UCDavis Cardiologist Dr. Joshua Stern also there are research papers published by Dr Lisa Freeman who is a veterinary nutritionist, and there are published papers by Tufts University as well. I am unable to share directly from that group.

You could go to this link, as I believe most of the published research is there as well. https://taurinedcm.org

I spent about a month reading and absorbing all the information, then I made the switch to Purina Pro Plan for Poppy.

Here is a link to Dr. Lisa Freeman's article. Dr. Freeman is from Tuft's University
