If your vet sells Hills products (Science Diet), do not take any nutrition advice from them. Contrary to what I thought at first, there are few veterinarians who are dog nutrionists. Many veterinarians are offered incentives when they sell Science Diet or other commercial pet foods in their clinics. There are only a handful of vets, that are willing to give up these incentives and tell you the truth about the dog food industry. Science Diet, and any other commercial pet food (Iams, Eukanuba, Purina, etc..) are lower quality foods. Question the objectivity of any vet in the news or other that tell you otherwise.

Do not buy any commercial pet foods,'premium' foods are almost as bad as any grocery brand dog food. The commercial dog food industry has made gazillions of money turning their production waste into dog food, and selling this at a ‘premium’ price. Advertising and the media, controlled by the corporate giants such as Proctor and Gamble (Iams), Colgate-Palmolive (Hills Pet Nutrition), and Heinz (9 lives, Kibbles –n-bits) are key players, and cover up that the dog food industry is really an extension of the human food and agriculture industries. Anything that the pet food distributor does not add to the food themselves, does not have to be put on the label.

Do not trust dog food labels. They tell you to look at the first five ingredients, and if the first one is a meat such as ‘chicken’ or ‘lamb’ then it is supposed to be good. It is not. There are many contrived rules to pet food labeling, ingredients are listed in order of their weight. It takes hours to understand how to properly read a label. For example, According to US Coast Guard regulations Fish Meal not destined for human consumption has to be preserved with ethoxyquin, but since this comes from the distributor, you won’t find it on the final label.

The safest thing you can do for your pet, is to switch to a natural food that guarantees they only use human-grade ingredients. Then supplement that with home-cooked ingredients and meats. Contact a dog nutritionist to get a consultation for your dog- you can get this done for under $50. You will save on vet bills in the end.
