Consider Hill's Pet Nutrition, the maker of Science and Prescription Diets. Hill's is closely associated with the Mark Morris Institute, a separate foundation named after the company's founder. The institute offers short courses on pet nutrition to veterinary schools, free of charge. It supplies the instructors, most of whom are members of Hill's technical staff. The institute also publishes Small Animal Clinical Nutrition, now in its fourth edition, a weighty tome of more than 1,100 pages, which Hill's freely provides to veterinary students and practicing veterinarians.
Hill's gave us a copy of this book and we understood immediately why the company is so generous. [...]
Hill's is by no means alone in investing resources in veterinarians and students.
In 2008, for example, Mars gave $3 million to the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph for the Royal Canin Veterinary Endowed Chair in Canine and Feline Clinical Nutrition.
p 283 So where do most veterinary students and veterinarians learn about the nutritional needs of dogs and cats? Some may have studied animal science as undergraduates, but as we discovered, most get their nutrition education from pet food companies.
From this limited evidence, we conclude that dogs and cats can do fine on vegetarian diets if - and only if - the diets are formulated to provide nutrients that are missing or found in low amounts in plant foods. p. 233
