New Game Show: Wolf vs. Dog


Did you know I’m now the host of the world renown game show “Wolf vs. Dog.” My guest is veterinary nutritionist Dr. Lisa Freeman, co-founder Petfoodology, the scientific study of pet nutrition by veterinary nutrition specialists and experts. And she proudly states, she’s a myth buster, as there are so many myths when it comes to pet foods. Freeman is a clinical professor of nutrition at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.

Dr. Lisa Freeman

One really common belief these day is that our dogs, who share your bedrooms (often your beds) have the same nutritional needs as wolves. And Freeman explains, that’s just not true. I call it ‘fake news.’

A wolf?

By the way, the Petfoodology site is great because experts (I mean real experts with education and lots of it) write about what we do know and what we don’t know regarding pet foods. Current topics include:

A broken heart: Risk of heart disease in boutique or grain-free diets and exotic ingredients

Should I give fish oil to my pet?

Why are so many of our pets overweight? 

Thee are many stories, and there’s lots of research on this site.

More on dogs and wolves and their differing nutritional needs. 

Hope you enjoy the game show. Sorry, Dr. Freeman never received a parting gift. I I suppose her real gift is that the show ended.
