|Actually, I'm not sure which is worse. Bad food that the vet sells (Science Diet) or really bad food that grocery stores sell cause customers don't know any better? Personally, I think it's a shame that Vets support certain foods.
I'll admit, I'm one of those that didn't know better and fed Whiskas cause it had the soft meaty centers. I didn't know better at the time and my kitties suffered from it. Penta, one of my kitties, would throw up a lot and very often from the food. We took him to a holistic vet, but we didn't know we wanted to go to Innova (the kibble she recommended - it was hard to find in the area and expensive, she did carry it though) and thought she was crazy for feeding BARF to her cats. She said the best store food was Purina One so we fed that for a long time, and the problem did improve a lot. We now feed Innova and are starting to supplement RAW too. Go Figure.
I should probaly send her a note thanking her for the advice she gave us years ago. I only regret I didn't take it then. You know it's something when a conversation at a vet is still remembered 5 years later.
