Well, I’ve been threatening to leave pet food for a while now and finally, I am. I’ll begin a banking career in February! I’m pretty excited to try something new and different. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always have a passion for making and keeping my pets and your pets healthy, but I just can’t be surrounded by kibble that claims to be the answer to all our pets’ health problems, while also being the actual problem.
It’s very frustrating to know so much from all of my training and experience, and not being allowed to give that information out because of the powers that be, (Purina, Hills, Royal Canin) have the FDA and AAFCO wrapped up in their bad science and lies.
It was easier working in independent pet stores because people were there to learn but being surrounded by those brands, giving out good advice only to watch people grab a 50 pound bag of Beneful or prescription Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein is just too much for me. My brain is saying “Beneful caused the allergies and Royal Canin is recommended for that? Why not feed actual food and see what happens?” Because while I do know what I’m talking about, “the vet said to feed this”. Sure, those 4 hours of nutrition training in Veterinary school definitely trump my 9 years of pet nutrition. Makes perfect sense.
But I digress.
I will always be available to my friends, family and readers, if they need advice. No matter the pet food trends, carnivores will always need meat over anything else. I will stand by that forever.
Always feel free to email me or comment.
