Nutrition

Here's a link to a really good blog on pet nutrition written by a board certified veterinary nutritionist. I would recommend starting at the beginning (October 2014) and reading through her posts. It is really educational from a respectable source of information, which can clear up a lot of misconceptions about pet food and pet food marketing!

Another excellent source of nutrition information from Tufts University
