The AVMA’s War Against Raw Diets for Pets

Jean Hofve, DVM, former Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, has written a must-read post concerning a proposed AVMA resolution opposing raw diets for pets to be voted on by the AVMA on August 3, 2012.  She refutes the arguments put forth by the AVMA and tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the safety of raw feeding.  Whether you are for or against raw feeding, or just on the fence, you’ll want to read this article. It was originally posted on her wonderful Little Big Cat website — which is not just for cats.  

Permission granted by Dr. Hofve to cross post.

8/8/12 update: Here’s the AVMA’s decision. It’s very disappointing. It’s more important now than ever to read this great article.   Read more »
