Retinal degeneration associated with the feeding of dog foods to cats

, : Retinal degeneration associated with the feeding of dog foods to cats. Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 172(7): 791-796

The retinal degenerative lesions ranged in size from small areas to focal atrophy centered in the area centralis to generalized retinal atrophy. Blindness developed only in cats with generalized retinal atrophy. Analysis of both dry and canned dog foods, revealed that taurine was absent or was present in very low concentrations when compared with control cat food diets.
