Closed petition Inquiry into the pet food industry and its relationship with the vet profession

Doctors recommend fresh, minimally processed food to help prevent diet-related diseases, but some members of the veterinary profession have endorsed processed food for pets. Concerns have been raised that some members of the profession have an inappropriate relationship with the pet food industry.

MPs were aware of this issue in 2004:

Please investigate and launch an inquiry into this important issue.
