A Tribute to Bronx Butler by Meg Smart DVM, PhD

A Tribute to Bronx Butler(May 20th2003-Feb22nd 2016)

During my career as a veterinarian and a clinical nutritionist, certain clients and their pets have played a significant role in changing my thoughts on the role of nutrition in health and the quality of life. Veterinary therapeutic diets claim to give the veterinarian an instant “scientifically proven” way to nutritionally manage a particular disease. All the controversy surrounding the purity and safety of many of the major ingredients, the integrity of the suppliers, and the marketing strategies of the manufacturer brings into question the true nature of the science behind many of these diets sold to the pet owners.
