Does Grain-Free Dog Food Matter?


Dr. Ruth MacPete reveals pet food mysteries, on Steve Dale’s Pet World, WGN Radio. Listen here as, for example, she explains whether or not ‘Grain-Free’ matters and what the term grain-free even means.

We discuss how to even search for a pet that is right for your pet. Dr. MacPete says look for quality ingredients, names of ingredients we know. By the way the terms, she explains, chicken meal or turkey meal aren’t bad.

After attending the  Clinical Animal Behavior 2015 Conference, Sept. 25 to 27, presented by the American Veterinary Society of Animal BehaviorSociety of Veterinary Behavior Technicians and Academy of Veterinary Behavior Technicians, I just returned to do the show after taking the red eye, and getting about four hours of very heavy sleep, supplemented by a ‘sleep helper.’

I also talk about two products I heard about at the Clinical Animal Behavior 2015 Conference, the Pet Tutor (cool automatic pet feeder) and Solliquin (a nutritional supplement to help calm anxious pets).

Friends of Chicago Animal Care & Control’s big Big Night benefit honors me, that’s right little ole’ me, October 8. I hope to see you there  at the Chicago Cultural Center, after 6 p.m. GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.  Learn more about Big Night HERE.
