Dennis Douda in "The Raw Versus Processed Dog Food Debate" reports that Kelli Johnson, a kennel owner, feeds her dogs raw food. Johnson said her dogs "have more vitality, fewer allergies and cleaner teeth. They also haven't had any health issues in years. I haven't been to the vet with an issue with the dogs in seven or eight years." When I read this I feel that she could be speaking about me instead of her dogs!
Douda also reports Dr. Julie Churchill, a specialist in animal nutrition at the University of Minnesota's College of Veterinary Medicine saying that these claims are just "myth, urban legend." When I read this I wondered if the University Department she works for is funded in any way by companies that manufacture processed, non-raw animal food. The animals have their improved health as a consequence of consuming their natural raw diet. The consequence for Veterinarians and the dog food manufacturers that fund them is a decrease in revenue.
By the way, I researched the sources of Veterinarian Dr. Julie Churchill's funding. Dr. Churchill's research funding is provided by the Ralston Purina company.
