Misleading experts

Did anyone else see how to save on your supermarket shop on TV last night? An ‘expert’ stated any complete kibble or tinned is perfectly healthy so it’s ok to buy the cheapest. So more people will now happily buy supermarket economy brands and similar rubbish. The only useful thing he said was not to mix raw with kibble and that vegan diets were not recommended. There have been similar programmes before, but it would be nice if - just for once - they featured someone who actually knew what they were talking about

Gemma, this program is available on catch up, DoGood, the vegan dog food company who featured briefly commented on their Facebook page.

Yes, Seaweed, I can see why DoGood would be annoyed, as it did them no favours whatsoever. Personally, I’m convinced that dogs need meat, but, if I was forced to choose between DoGood and the complete ‘cereals and animal derivatives’ rubbish that Rory whateverhisnameis considers nutritious, I’d have to opt for the vegan option.

It is concerning that some media outlets may provide inaccurate information about pet nutrition and health. It’s true that not all pet foods are created equal, and some economy brands may contain lower quality ingredients that may not meet all of your pet’s nutritional needs. It’s best to consult with a veterinarian or a veterinary nutritionist to determine the best diet for your pet based on their individual needs and health status. They can help you make informed decisions about the type and quality of food you should feed your pet, including the best options for your budget. Additionally, it’s important to remember that not all pets have the same dietary requirements and what may be appropriate for one pet may not be for another.
