  • This sorry excuse of a veterinary needs to closed this chanel. This guys figured the more sick dogs, the better for his industry. What an ignorant �� excuse for a vet.

  • Of course you would say that its bad because your Taught in vet school an out dated way of thinking. Kibble started getting fed to dogs in the 1800s when we didn’t know what we know now about what we feed are animals. Kibble is full of carbs which dogs don’t need they need very little carbs and high fat and protein its how there bodies work. If processed food isn’t good for humans its not good for any other animal or reptile so we need to stop feeding high card low protein and fat diets and feed them what they bodies need. If the owners control whats getting put in there dogs food there will be less cases of dogs getting euthanasia drugs in there food and getting killed. yes feeding raw can give your dog salmonella but there digestive system is built to deal with it. Sure if someone feeds raw to a dog with a undiagnosed illness that makes there system unable to deal with the bacteria they will have to go to the vet the amount of dogs that actually get bad enough are about 3% of dogs both on kibble and raw diet so there’s no reason that dogs should be eating poison in kibble when they can be eating raw food and avoiding there food putting them down.

  • Funny enough my dog always had digestive problems until I stopped with dry food and moved on to raw. Even his coat looks healthier

  • Just wonderful, I been tryin to find out about “what happens if you eat old cooked chicken?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Banailey Startling Blaster (just google it )? It is a great one of a kind product for discovering how to improve your dogs health without the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my brother in law got great results with it.

  • This was great, thanks, been searching for “is yogurt or cottage cheese better for dogs?” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Banailey Startling Blaster (should be on google have a look )? It is a great one of a kind guide for discovering how to improve your dogs health without the headache. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my m8 got cool success with it.

  • I don’t believe this guy is a vet. He looks like that third dentist from the polls. Disregard this lone voice and research other more qualified opinions.

  • Animals are not like humans, if you feed them good quality food of what they are meant to eat, they literally thrive, they don’t need all that extra crap stores sell you, or treats and crap. My grandparents cats one lived almost 19 yrs and the other one 23 yrs, they were siblings. All they ever ate was, mice from the attic where they stored the corn, raw milk straight from the cow once in then morning and evening when grandpa was milking the cows, and occasionally raw chicken, lamb and fish when my grandmother was cooking. Man those cats looked beautiful and healthy, I will never forget to this day, their coats were perfect and shinny, they were super energetic even when they got older. Other than that they were free to run around the yard and village all they wanted. That’s what I call true happy cats.

  • Cmon its frustrating to see people refute with “well if its….” and then they ramble on about comparing the wild and the inside and not even make a backed argument with research, i expect better

  • Ya I just took out frozen chilli from 2016 it’s now December 2019. Hopes it’s still good to eat? ��… Thanks! ���������������������������������������� �� ������

  • There is more money in food industry for cats and dogs than in food industry for kids. This idiot like all vets is benefiting from this industry, shut upp, idiot

  • stay away from APOQUEL if ur dawg get itchy. stay away from kibble! minced beef and pork and canned fish, pumpkin, broccoli, celery, carrot mix is the best, bit of parsley, coconut oil, cod liver oil. bang. now u have the ultimate dog food recipe folks.

  • According to the swedish health minestry deep frozen food at-4 F. ( or-20c) is ok even after many years. As long as the freezer os intact and work well food can last almost for ever. And that is all sorts of food.

  • I knew it. Dogs have been cooking food for million of years. We even have mummified evidence of Gordog Ramsey which was the most famous chef dog back then. When humans domesticated them, it took away their cooking knowledge. Now they have to depend on human to process and cook the food for them. Bad humans.

  • Unfortunately either this vet is a corporate shill, or just been fooled by the corporate greed. And AAFCO? dont even get me started on that bullshit of a committee. Doesnt even have any regulatory authority

  • This is not true I hold my hands up l do feed my dog on dry food but I don’t think it’s better for them raw food is best it’s how dogs naturally eat and the vets kno this. All farm cats eat is rats mice pigeon and what ever they can get there paws on. And they’re a lot healthier then house cats. So what’s the difference in dogs. ��

  • There are many dangers in raw meats feeding… pathogens such as worms, viruses, bacteria. To harm YOUR DOG, AND YOUR KIDS, YOUR FAMILY when they contaminate your home. Not worth it. ����

  • There is more money in food industry for cats and dogs than in food industry for kids. This idiot like all vets is benefiting from this industry, shut upp, idiot

  • B-I-A-S-E-D!!! They are carnivores they require moderate fat, low carb, high moisture and high protein diets. My dogs mean everything to me, and while I respect my veterinarian’s concerns, I have made the informed decision to feed them a raw food diet.
    Here’s why: I’ve been feeding my animals raw for years and since then, they have developed silky smooth coats, have absolutely no skin issues, no BM troubles, more than enough energy, their teeth are in great condition, and they maintain a perfect weight. The vet even comments on how healthy they are when I bring them in for their annual wellness checks! Still, when they ask me if I’m still feeding them raw food (and I always say yes) I get the same head shake and look of disapproval. They’ve told me feeding raw is unsafe because of potential food-borne illnesses but I only feed them things I would feed myself quality meat and fresh fruits and vegetables. Then, the vet tells me that the issue is malnutrition they need the added nutrients that are in kibble. So, okay, I’ll supplement with salmon oil, etc. That way they get healthy fats, proteins and other nutrients but still without the corn, wheat, and other unnecessary ingredients. BUT, then the issue becomes that I’m potentially passing pathogens to young children by feeding my dogs raw food. Well, I don’t have young children, I don’t share a yard with young children, and I pick up my dog’s poop after they’ve gone. There is no reasonable opportunity for cross-contamination between my dogs and a child. So, okay. Just to be safe, I’ll boil some water over the food to kill whatever bacteria is on the surface of the meat. This is apparently still not good enough, and every time, they bring me to the same wall of “prescribed canine diets” to try and guilt me into buying one of their products. I respect that she disagrees with my decision to feed my dogs raw, and I’ve taken all of her criticisms to minimize the risks of feeding raw, but it is never good enough. After every visit, she still highlights their raw diet as an “active concern” on their health record. And yet, I have two healthy, highly active, beautiful border collies who LOVE meal time and have had no health issues whatsoever. Maybe it’s time we consider the possibility that there is more to our pet’s nutritional needs.

  • What do you think dogs ate in the wild!? They were better off health wise before they were tamed, because they weren’t eating that kibble crap. They love pinning cancers on specific breeds but fail to tell you they stem from eating kibble instead of raw diets as well.
