With the recent pet food recall crisis, it is more important than ever that veterinarians have an understanding of the pet food industry and that they have all the necessary tools to assess diets appropriate for their patients.
We may soon see a tremendous political and financial impact globally as the consumer, particularly in developed countries, will start to demand more transparency in where food is coming from and how food safety is assured.
