WVC 91st Annual Conference
Diet is something that a pet parent can control; they often view nutritional therapy as natural and holistic as opposed to surgical and pharmacological prevention and management of disease. For these reasons, there are a growing number of pet parents using homemade diet recipes available from a variety of sources. It should also be noted that there has been significant growth in the raw pet diets sector of the pet food industry over the last decade despite veterinary organizations and governmental public health stance against raw pet diets. The studies and controversies of homemade and raw diet pet diets will be presented.
