I'm starting to wonder that too... I guess I'll just do what I'm doing now and not say a thing.As a future vet tech, am I going to have to lie about what I'm feeding my dog if I get hired by a vet?
I know right! I get sick of people telling me what I should and shouldn't do for my dog. its my dog. my responsibly. I know what's best for her.And WHY do they care so much? Why is it anyone else's business what someone feeds their dog as long as the dog is being fed?
ummm...yes there is..several places have spay neuter laws in which dogs are required by law to be spayed/neutered by 4 months.Just to put it in perspective, the AVMA has a policy statement that supports pediatric spay/neuter, and so far it's not illegal to spay or neuter at 6 or 12 or 24 months or never
+1 I don't know if my dog will show much of an external difference on raw but I can tell she enjoys it, I can see her deciding which part to eat first and how... She never thought about food before. Raw is best I think.My dogs are raw fed and will continue to be raw fed until I decide to stop. End of story.
"Several" places?ummm...yes there is..several places have spay neuter laws in which dogs are required by law to be spayed/neutered by 4 months.
Guys, the AVMA is not a governing body and it doesn't have any authority over vets or anyone else, it's just a professional association. Membership is totally voluntary and members are not obligated to follow policy statements. Vets don't have to do what the AVMA says just because they say it. Plenty of vets disagree with plenty of AVMA policy statements and merrily do what they want. This thing is TOTALLY getting blown out of proportion... if it even passes, it literally will not change anything.As I've said on facebook in several raw feeding groups, this really won't change anything in my opinion. You can still feed raw. You can still buy meat. You don't *need* to tell your vet what you feed. They can't make you do anything, and really what are they going to do, send you to a different vet?
