Do vets really get kickbacks for recommending certain dog foods?
A couple years ago, my vet HIGHLY recommended Science Diet for my dogs. I have 3 white dogs and have been told that white dogs tend to have skin problems, and 2 of mine do. Lots of itching, mostly on their feet.
Was told by a "dog food expert(?)" that Science Diet has too much corn in it, which I guess can cause itching. I switched to "Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul" today, as highly recommended by a trusted friend who has done her research, not by my vet. Vet Tech says too much protein can cause kidney and heart problems for dogs later on in life (so she would not recommend this food). Does anyone else know that to be true?
Anyhow, I would be very upset to find out we've been dealing with my dogs' itching and them being so uncomfortable all this time because Science Diet gives my vet a kickback!
