Should I Feed My Pet Fresh Fruits & Vegetables?

May 4, 2020

By Nicole R. Cammack

Let’s face it, we are human, always learning, and evolving. As far as nutrition goes, you hear one thing one week and it changes the next (butter or margarine for example). For our pets, the topic of nutrition is very much like a religion. There are many different philosophies and people will fight over whatever belief they believe to be true. The problem with many of these arguments is that they are largely based on emotion and not science. While there is scientific evidence to support many different nutrition philosophies, the way that evidence is interpreted can bend truths leading...

More people are home with their pets these days and just like their humans, pets need to stay both mentally and physically engaged. Rather than have your dog decide how to entertain himself (i.e. eating your favorite shoes or chewing on your couch cushions) here are a few ideas to try out with your pooch. Teach your dog to “Find It!” Teaching your dog the basics of scent work is both mentally and physically engaging for your pet by making him feel useful and productive.  All you need are some treats and/or toys.

Within this article, the CIDRAP cites three separate abstracts of studies – not peer-reviewed papers. Two of which actually have no direct link to the feeding of RMBDs and pathogens. Like many other articles both peer-reviewed and opinion pieces, this article preys upon the fears of pet...

A Missed Opportunity for Pet Food Companies: We Need Less Marketing and More Science.

March 12, 2020

By Nicole R. Cammack

Since the controversy surrounding grain-free food and the potential association to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) in dogs, the marketing departments of nearly every pet food company have been working overtime. While each company has tried to create the illusion that they are transparent, independent and ‘ahead’ of the problem – two main campaigns exist amongst most of them (with a few valid exceptions) that tell a different story.
