Will there ever come a day when Vets will stop selling bad pet food?
Question by What.. EVER: Will there ever come a day when Vets will stop selling bad pet food?
It really bothers people who know how bad Hills and Royal Canin prescription food is when a vet sells it and pushes it on pet owners who know no better. Will Vets ever come together and take a stand against these horrible pet “food” companies and refuse to sell it? I know they make 40% profit off the food but they should care more about the health of pets. Don’t people become Vets because they love animals?
@catherin.. and Mariji…
hmm let’s see:
One of Royal Canin’s ingredient list:
ROYAL CANIN Veterinary Diet� canine Hypoalergenic HP 19�
“Rice, soy protein isolate hydrolysate, chicken fat, natural flavors, beet pulp, vegetable oil…”
Those are the top ingredients. What happened to meat?
Presciption Diet D&D:
Potato, Potato Starch, Venison, Potato Protein, Pork Fat , Soybean Oil (preserved with BHA, propyl gallate and citric acid)…”
Pork fat??? BHA?? BHA is BANNED for use in human food because it is a carcinogen(causes cancer).
So how is it that Hills and Royal Canin are good foods??

First of all, the prescription Hills food is actually good, and Royal Canin isn’t that bad, it just depends on what the needs of your dog are.
And the reason they push those foods is because Science Diet pays for many vets to go to school. So no, they won’t stop selling it.
