What is natural nutrition? What kinds of diets were dogs and cats designed by evolution to eat? Are conventional pet diets really complete and balanced? How do we know? This presentation will answer these and many other important questions that nutrition-curious veterinary professionals have. Together we will explore the research behind the raw pet food movement. The participant will learn about the difference between reductionist nutrition and food synergy. We will delve into the important nutrients found in whole foods and their roles in promoting health. We’ll see what research has to say about the ideal macronutrient balance for dogs and cats and how this compares with the balance found in conventional diets.
