Just my opinion but I think it is highly unethical for vets to be able to sell food in their practices. Obviously they are not thinking of the welfare of the animal when they prescribe this stuff. There is a conflict of interest when the dog will be coming back with other ailments because his food is of the lowest quality. And guess who is making money on medicines it will take to make him feel better. Why do they sell a food that has known carcinogens?Yep, sounds about right. That's what my poor 11 year old lab/shepherd was on for 8 years before we finally realized it's absolute crap and that's probably why the poor dog was falling apart. She's better now that she's on raw though!
It's amazing how "modern medicine" really messes things up sometimes.
This is so true. Its just like a lot of the physicians............they don't know anything about nutrition....just drugs. There's no training or very very little in med school. Lots of vets where I live carry Science Diet. I guess they just don't know any betterI know SOME vets that honestly believe SD and Hills are the absolute best foods available. They are trained in vet school (coincedently SD sponsors) that SD has the best nutrition. I think they only have one nutrition class in vet school and it's sponsored and taught by SD representatives. I really wish vets would educate their clients on nutrition, but I guess they would have to first educate themselves.
