Ina, do look over the links Charmed Wolf posted, there is a link, or remark, about "contact me if your vet needs nutrition info". Maybe she is offering to contact the vet herself, (she is obviously incredibley knowledgable about dog nutrition) or, maybe she will send you a print out, not sure what that means. I agree with you, most vets, maybe the overwhelming majority of vets, either do not know, or do not care (?) about dog nutrition. At all. Buddy just had his check up, and they did not even ask what he is being fed. (they did a year ago, but, shouldn't they ask each year?) AND I APPLAUD YOUR EFFORTS to try to educate your vet!! GO INA!!! I want a full report!!! I should probably think about doing the same, you make a really good point there!!! I agree, that we humans should be attuned to our own bodies, i agree!! It is stunning how oblivious some ppl are to the signals their own body is sending. So many ppl seem unable to manage their own health and nutrition very well. I do not completely trust either a child's nor a dog's ability to sense what is right/wrong to eat. (or my own, half the time, ha ha!!) My dog would happily wolf down raisens, grapes, chocolate, etc, if he had a chance to. All would be poisonous to him. Buddy would LIVE on cheese and peanut butter alone, if allowed to. Or dog treats, even lousy store bought dog treats, Buddy would probably eat the entire bag if we gave it to him. Vets get visits every day from dogs who have eaten pantyhose or other weird things. My sister's dog once devoured a 12 lb ham, in one sitting, and almost died. (he actually opened the fridge!!) i think we have to monitor their nutrition FOR them, but, maybe your dog is unique. One thing we all know is, dogs ARE individuals!!!!
