I don’t mean to be rude but what JamieK said is the exact opposite of what you should do. I see 100 to 200 pet parents a day, five days a week for years, and I can tell you Vets know just as much or less than the average person about pet nutrition. I meet people on a weekly basis that are feeding Beneful because their Vet told them to only feed foods that say “Complete and Balanced” on the label. Or that Corn is one of the best ingredients for a dog. C’mon, seriously? It’s not like the research or tests are hard to find.
Thank you again. That was extremely informative and helpful. That gives me much more to relay to my customers.
Very nice Aimee thanks. I try not to push for that same reason you suggested, plus I wouldn’t want someone telling me I’m wrong about my dog. So I simply try to ask why they use that diet and then suggest the best vegetarian fromula my store carries. It’s still not a high rated formula but hopefully it will supply all the nutritional requirements their dog needs. I try to upgrade people but if they are happy with what they are feeding then I leave them be. I never try and talk anyone out of any dog food . . . . except Beneful
Thanks for the help guys. I’m glad I joined this forum.
Thanks. I’ve read all that and I agree with both of you. I just didn’t know if anyone on this site had any proof or reasons why a vegetarian diet would be better. I agree that the reason most people feed their dogs vegan is for their own personal reasons and not to help the canine. Obviously I can’t tell the customers that. I guess I’ll just keep trying to convince them to change there dogs diet.
Thanks a lot, I especially like your comment about the difference between surviving and thriving. I’m gonna use that one!
