Health: Feeding your dog part II

Dr. Patty Khuly writes the Fully Vetted blog over on PetMD. She updates several times a week on everything from rehabbing her rescue mutt, current trends in vet med, her mini-menagerie of farm animals to what peeves her most about the owners of her patients. Most of the time she’s a great read. Just avoid the know-it-alls in the comments section if you can.

Dr. Khuly just kicked off the hot button issue of how to best to feed your pet with her first missive on the topic–is switching brands of food unhealthy for your dog? She’s since posted two more installments and promises plenty more talk on the topic. I really hope she covers off on price versus quality. And addresses the raw food diet idea.

And…

Addresses brands carried by vets. Vets are courted the minute they enter school with access to free and heavily discounted food from brands like Purina and Hill’s Science Diet. They then go off to work at clinics with sweet deals to sell those same brands to their clients. And there’s some serious debates about whether those brands are worth the higher premium they cost. And if they should even be promoted by vets at all.

As usual, her posts are both interesting and informative.
