A poor pet diet can have subtle and slowly evolving ill effects. Dr. Patton explores a few of the ignored fundamentals right before our eyes.

Topics covered by Dr. Patton:

  • Essential ingredients
  • Basic requirements
  • Wet food vs dry
  • Drawbacks and benefits of raw, natural diets
  • Role of behavior - pet and owner
  • Insider perspective of the pet food industry
  • Obesity epidemic
