My vet just prescribed Iams prescription weight loss. First ingredient: CORN MEAL??? Wish there was a way to compare brands and get ingredient lists for each! Know of a site?

Thanks for the article. My vet just placed my dog on a diet food, so this was very helpful.

..."For most of the diets, pets would not lose weight or would gain weight if owners followed the labels’ feeding directions and didn’t adjust according to their pet’s individual calorie
requirements..."

This is why they are feeding recommendations! I spend way too much time in my shoppe explaining commonsense feeding guidelines to customers. All this ivory tower research makes for interesting reading for us biology types, but if owners would just measure the food instead of guessing and would stop feeding the poor quality, high-grain, corn gluten meal foods it would help our pets stay in shape.

Why can't they make foods simple to understand?
