Why more vets recommend raw diet
By Dr. Peter Dobias
The funniest video about processed pet(junk)food
Every day I am reminded that “the processed vs. raw and natural food debate” is far from over. There are many opinions, many arguments and I make my recommendation simple. If you are unsure what to feed, look what nature does. I find it interesting that processed pet food companies continue to argue that their food is safer than raw. Perhaps they have some sort of permanent state of amnesia and forget as soon as the next tainted pet food scandals emerges from their processing plants.
The argument that raw food should not be fed because it is full of bacteria doesn’t stand with me because in 15 years of feeding and recommending raw food, the incidence of digestive problems in my practice has dropped at least four times. I also know that cats eat mice full of bacteria and dogs eat things that are much worse than a chunk of meat. They have evolved as carnivores and scavengers and raw meat and bones are what they designed to eat. In other words, dogs are not usually seen grazing in rice or corn fields.
I am going to keep this blog short because from my point of view, I see no reasons to continue the meaningless argument about raw food. It has healed many ill animals and made them strong and healthy. After 24 years in practice, I do not hesitate to say out in the open that I strongly believe that feeding dogs and cats processed makes them sicker and live shorter lives.
I love the following video because it says it all with a good dose of humour
