Well, yes you're right in a way because they don't get sufficient training. You think they would but since many nutrition courses are sponsored by the same companies producing the prescription foods, why wouldn't a vet school offer these courses?
I just wish vets would do some independent research. Well let me rephrase that. I wish there were long-term studies on all types of pet food, be it kibble, canned, homecooked or raw, low vs high premium brands etc. This may be a little unethical but I've seen some disturbing stuff on how some companies test their foods. If research such as this existed, then maybe more vets would be open to different ways of feeding. I just hate that when I ask, I get nothing but a canned response.
