Pet Food Resources
One thing to keep in mind about vets is that we expect miracles from them. We expect them to be skilled and knowledgeable in Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Eyes-Ears-Nose-Throat, Gastroenterology, Optometry, Dentistry, Anesthetics, Surgery, Allergies, and more. Oh, but that’s not all. We also expect them to be all of these things to dogs, cats, hamsters, birds, rabbits, snakes, ferrets, turtles, lizards, and more. Oh, but that’s still not all. We also expect them to be all of these things to all of these species AND to 195 breeds within the canine specie alone! No one person could do all of that even if they never slept and did nothing else. That’s why you need to know your breed and know what you want your dog to eat and what you want injected into your dog. He/She is YOUR responsibility (not your vet’s), and your decisions will have a profound effect on the quality and length of his/her life (and, consequently, yours). Not to mention the heartache in watching your BFF suffer witha chronic condition and the financial savings in not having to treat a chronic condition.
The Whole Dog Journal analyzes foods annually because dog food companies change ownership, change where their food is manufactured and who manufactures it, change the process used to manufacture it, and change ingredients. It is an honor and marketing tool for dog food companies to have their food analyzed by The Whole Dog Journal and making their "Approved" list.
