AVMA Position On Feeding Raw Diet
Today is National Holistic Pet Day, and one of the topics that we typically think of when we think holistic care for our pets is diet. Much has been written in the last month regarding the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) position against feeding pets a raw diet.
Although the AVMA decision is not considered “law”, it could very well be a strong deterrent for many pet owners considering a switch to raw diet for their pets.
I’ve read many articles in favor of raw, with many pet owners seeing a marked improvement in their pet’s health after making the switch from manufactured pet foods.
There are pluses and minuses to the raw food diet and I would definitely recommend doing much research before switching your pet’s diet. If you have a holistic vet in your area, consult them for advice.
