I'll be posting this elsewhere, probably won't make a dent, but it's worth a try. If it even influences ONE....

Thanks for posting it Pookie, I get her articles via e mail, I must have missed this one somehow.

I find it amazing that pet parents buy into marketing gimmicks that human parents would never fall for. For instance, how often have you heard a pediatrician say, “Never feed your baby anything but X brand of baby food, because feeding a homemade diet could be dangerous to your child’s health?” Never. But you do hear it often in the veterinary world.

Or how about this one: “Switching your brand of baby food could lead to GI problems, so feed only one brand or type of baby food to your children for the rest of their lives to avoid GI problems.” You would never hear this, either, from a competent pediatrician. And yet, you hear this type of advice all the time in the veterinary industry. It’s startling to me to know that entire generations of people actually believe pets must have “pet food” to be healthy.

I keep on forgetting it's in the cat section too.  :D

I forgot it was due yesterday morning b/c was stripping Vlad some, then COMPLETELY slipped my mind after the horrible news about Boston. Didn't remember till I saw someone tweet about it.
"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
