Why does our dog have bad breath? Why do so many pets have digestive issues and even cancer? What's going on? Billy Hoekman, the Nutrition Science Director for Answers Pet Food, discusses the role that diet plays in pet health. Just as with people, animals could benefit from a dietary overhaul that leads back to what suits their constitution best.
Billy goes over the ingredients in most pet food, and explains how pet food labels don't tell the entire story. He covers why a raw diet is preferable over kibble. And he gives concrete tips for how to transition pets to a more suitable diet to cultivate good health and avoid disease.
