Knowledge is never static. It is constantly evolving. That is why it is important to never stop learning and reviewing the latest research, and that means more than just reading the abstract. We follow the research being conducted by more than 200 different researchers across the world.

While certain companies and influencers bemoan the fact that industry funds much of the research into canine nutrition and health, this is also because governments across the world provide very little funding for companion animal research.
