Diet Pet Food for Obese Dogs & Cats
Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (12-23-2017) #554: Dr. Ryan Tamka (who is a veterinary nutritionist with a doctorate in animal nutrition and board certified with the American College of Animal Science, as well as the American College of Human Nutrition), discusses obesity in cats and dogs and how diet pet foods work; Amy Nichols has joined the Humane Society of the United States as head of the Companion Animal department, directly from creating the doggy daycare franchise Dogtopia; Dr. Nick Dodman is the founder of the Department of Animal Behavior at the Cumming Veterinary School at Tufts, and is seeking more participants for an ongoing study at his Center for Canine Behavior Studies. They are gathering information with a quick online questionnaire for dog owners — the first phase is now open. All dog owners are encouraged to participate in the Center’s new canine behavior study that ends January 15 2018, as a way of helping determine the challenges posed by some dogs and how best to manage them to avoid being left in a shelter.
