Rowan Sanderson sits down with Dr. Brendan Clarke, President of the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society (RFVS) to discuss the myths of a complete, balanced diet.
The FEDIAF has set minimum requirements when feeding your dog. The problem is that these requirements are tailored to the “average dog”, which does not actually exist since every dog’s caloric requirements and metabolism are different.
Rowan and Brendan lay out the limitations of minimum calorie and nutrient requirements, why trying to give a “complete meal” at every meal is not the best idea, and why it pays to just relax when it comes to preparing your dog’s meals, as opposed to obsessing over exactly how much of every type of macro and micronutrient is present in the food.
