Do You Rely on Your Vet For Nutritional Advice?

Relying on nutritional advice from your vet is like getting marriage counseling from your priest. I realize that this is a pretty bold statement but the facts don’t lie.

Most veterinarians are excellent at what they do and know. They have been well trained to be the pet guardians and protectors for the pet’s well being.

Unfortunately in the area of nutrition they in general lack the studies necessary to be qualified in this area. Unless they receive additional training from outside of the general veterinary courses or are self studied they lack the training to be proficient in giving nutritional advice.

They are understandably limited to suggesting what information they have received from courses taught by the dry kibble manufacturers. Several of the dry dog food companies have supported the vet teaching programs and other support programs such as books and scholarship programs in order to gain sales from the graduating vets after graduation.

I relate the same level of experience to people that scramble to their priest for marital advice. Is a priest who has never been married really the best option for giving marital advice? It is beyond my understanding that people can find workable solutions to problems of this magnitude, yet it happens every day.

I find the same level of “trust” that must exist when people buy dry dog food. How cleverly have the dry heat processed manufacturers presented their case on how to properly feed a companion pet.

Can we be so naive to believe that a dog can be fed a grain based diet when all physical characteristics in them point to feeding a meat based diet. A dog is NOT designed to eat a grain based food but the industry has convinced the public differently. At least this was the case until the major Menu Foods recall happened. It was then exposed that the food was perhaps not as safe as people had been led to believe.

Who do you rely on for your dog’s good eating? You can rely on BARF® World for a nutritionally, complete and balanced formula. I have worked in the pet food industry for over 40 years and have seen so many success stories over the years, so I can boldly say that the BARF® Diet is the right option for your pet!
