I might be just guessing here and I hope I don't offend anyone... but it could be that the general attitude towards dogs in each country is different? Obviously there are exceptions, but Aussies seem a lot more laid back about their dogs... a lot of them are working dogs who probably sleep outside or in separate housing, who aren't on three or four different kinds of preventatives, who eat kibble and some table scraps. I'm not saying that Australians are neglectful of their pets... I'm saying it could be the difference between a country in which the majority of dogs are workers, and a country in which the majority of dogs are family pets.

I know in Singapore, China, Korea and Japan, dogs are very often accessories or "kids"... you will not find a greater range of dog outfits anywhere on the other side of the world.

Most vets in the US, as well as here, also swear by brands like Science Diet and Eukanuba. I would say that the general populace in the US is equally unaware about how bad these foods are. Take DF as a microcosm: every week we get a new poster joining and saying he didn't realise how bad Science Diet was. It's still a relatively unknown fact.

It's also that a lot of the premium dog foods are manufactured in the States, so naturally they ship more widely there.
