During this intermediate level webinar, U.K. based veterinarian, Dr. Nick Thompson, will discuss some of the hot topics surrounding raw food nutrition and what is driving people to change to a raw/fresh diet for the pets in their care. He will also take a look at some of the reasons why others are not changing to a raw diet and whether there are in fact, any reasons for concern.

Dr. Thompson will then delve into the link between diet and behaviour in humans and whether what we know about humans can be applied to dogs. He will discuss proteins, fats, carbs. and ketogenic diets before drawing the presentation to a close, with a look at supplements and the foods we should choose to engender optimal behaviour in our canine companions, as well as those we should avoid.
