When all is said and done, vets are business people. Yes, they care greatly about pets. They have to in order to study for so long and to work as hard as they do.
But they also need to earn a living, a living enhanced greatly by selling packaged dog food on behalf of large commercial pet food manufacturers who will stop at nothing to get their products in front of potential customers.
By and large, all are made with inferior ingredients, processed to the point where little nutritional benefit remains, and then enhanced synthetically to improve their smell and taste. All done to fool our dogs into thinking they’re eating something that resembles proper food when actually it’s nothing of the sort.
And, in the case of dog biscuit, to fool the likes of you and I into purchasing it in the first place by making it look like chunks of meat when in point of fact, the actual meat content is virtually negligible.
With all due respect, sorry, but vets don’t know best. They have precious little training in small animal nutrition, and what little training they do have is provided by, you guessed it, the large commercial pet food manufacturers!
