Honestly I would really like to know how "some" vets that have only small amount of training about feline nutrition, and that education they do get is from the Science diet(Hill's) pet food company. How are they able to prescribe a food for an illness, and when that does not work and the cat gets sicker, why are they not sued for Malpractice?
For instance our human doctors (GP's) do not get much nutritional education in school either.
If they were to prescribe a specific diet, im sure they would loose their jobs. Yes they will tell us to eat less salt or sugar if we are diabetic, etc. but there is no food that is actually made up for our certain illnesses.
Dont get me wrong I think that Vets are very well educated when it comes to everything else, but why not food? I really wish they would start doing this, and by experts not pet food company's that are only in it for the all mighty dollar. Then we would not have the problems we are having with alot of our pets, we will be preventing these things, not trying to cover them up with inappropriate food and drugs.
