Default Prescription dog foods.

It's not before time this scam was closed down. Vets and pet food manufacturers are equally to blame. It will still leave the manufacturers with plenty of other money making scams.

That's very interesting.
Being an American suit though, shame it's unlikely to have any effect over here

True John, but if we publicise it maybe at least some people might say no to the prescription foods con.

Every single one of those foods listed there full of crap and willno doubt be very expensive as they are 'prescription foods'

The whole pet food industry is an enormous con. I'm afraid I upset one manufacturer's dietitian at Crufts one year. She was telling me how cruel I was not feeding their latest wiz bang puppy food and how my pup was being deprived. I'm afraid I told her that when she had seen even just one pup through from birth to death she might be qualified to discuss it. Often when walking around a big show I pick a little food off one of the stands and eat it, and it's invariably bland and tasteless. It might keep dogs alive but I can see why they prefer my home made spag bol!!!

I'd love to agree. We put Betty on a prescription diet as recommended by a professor of dermatology. It was mega bucks from the vets but half the price online.

She's just been put back on her old food, as an experiment, and she's itching, like mad. Nothing else has changed. Same water, bedding, washing powder, drugs.

There's nothing else I can put it down to other than the food.

Just my personal experience. She will be going back on to prescription food forthwith.

But the object of prescriptions is to control the sale of possibly dangerous drugs Nicola. If there are no drugs in the food, which that article says, then there is no reason for it to be only available by paying a vet for a prescription because there is nothing which needs controlling.
