Until recently, many pet owners’ approach to pet nutrition consisted of buying pet food at the grocery store, and feeding it to their pets. But the death and illnesses that prompted a widespread recall of cat and dog food last year brought issues of pet food and pet nutrition to the nation’s attention. What is really in pet food, and how do we know if it’s safe, and if it’s meeting our pet’s dietary needs? How do those needs change throughout our pet’s lifespan? Can healthy pet food be made at home? Join us this Monday as we answer these questions and more, in a conversation about pet nutrition. Today’s show is an archive edition, so we won’t be taking calls this hour.
