Is the food you’re feeding your pet killing it? (and making your vet rich) | Mail Online

And then I came across a website created by Lisa Pierson, a pet nutritionist, that completely shocked me. It explained that processed dried food – the exact kind I’d been feeding Jaggers for years – is linked to urinary and kidney problems.

‘I was horrified. This had never even been raised as a possibility by my vet. But after I’d read about this, I spoke to another vet, who agreed with Lisa Pierson.

He knew about the problems caused by processed foods, and said that if I’d fed Jaggers a more natural diet – such as raw meat or cooked chicken – he might never have fallen ill.’

Her story is sure to concern anyone with a pet, particularly because few people are aware of the little-publicised concerns about processed pet foods – and that includes ‘wet’ (i.e. tinned and packet) foods as well.

And part of the problem, as a Mail investigation can reveal, is that much of the veterinary industry is inextricably linked to the pet-food manufacturers.
