Kelly Diehl, Morris Animal Foundation

Dr. Kelly Diehl of the Morris Animal Foundation visits with us about once-a-month. She is a vet and scientist who helps decide what animal medical studies receive funding.

Topics include:

Vegetarian dog food “is becoming a big problem.” We talk about how alternative diets can hurt dogs — including heart disease and grain-free diets. Taurine discussion and the importance of the amino acid that saves animals’ lives.

How changes in the biome — gut bacteria — can hurt or benefit health.

Long discussion of issues related to CDB and to types of pet studies the foundation is seeking to fund.

Morris Animal FoundationA fascinating history of the Morris Animal Foundation — which is related to the Hill’s prescription diet that founder Dr. Mark Morris invented.

Worth a listen!
