Pet Food Myths & Facts

Helping people understand pet nutrition is important to me because I’ve learned firsthand that what we feed our pets is essential to their health and well-being. Even before I became a pet care professional, I discovered that the pet food industry is far from transparent and can be very deceptive. With this series of blog posts, I intend to shine a light on pet nutrition myths and facts. I hope you find it informative and helpful as you strive to help your pets have the best life possible. – Don Hanson
