Why Where You Get Your Pet Nutrition Information Matters

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

  • Instead of taking on the role of small animal nutrition educators themselves, many veterinarians seem to want pet food companies to continue do that job for them
  • Veterinarians, like human doctors, do not receive adequate nutrition education during medical training so many are not taught how to use food as medicine or as a disease-prevention strategy
  • Veterinarians who do want to assume a nutrition expert role with their clients will need to educate themselves first on the full range of pet diets available today; recommending highly processed “fast food” will not achieve long-term wellbeing
  • Until processed pet food manufacturers can effectively explain the disparity between their products and the food dogs and cats evolved to eat, pet owners should not rely on most pet food manufacturers for their nutrition advice
