A lot of you are asking about specific brands during Facebook Live sessions or via e-mail to our website. "Pet Fooled" doesn't recommend specific brands but if you're looking to learn more about various brands on the market and how foods are made, you can check out our "Talk To Us" campaign. http://www.petfooled.com/talk-to-us-campaign.html
For one reason or another, some of you on Facebook aren't paying attention before asking questions and it's a bit confusing as to why. For example, we are engaging with different companies for the "Talk To Us" campaign and some of you have been asking different companies what they think or feel about other brands on the market.
It's as if some people aren't even watching what's going on and instead just posting the first thing that comes to mind.
Pet Fooled the film asks you to think about the appropriate approach to nutrition. The reality is, consumers want convenience. You can continue to seek out and be confused by what's on the shelves at any store OR you can dedicate more time to researching what the appropriate approach to nutrition means to you. That means you have to dedicate time and research to finding this answer for yourself. What does quality mean to you? What about sourcing? How can you verify that?
Don't look for shortcuts and don't be afraid to challenge yourself and research this topic as much as you can. You don't have to solve every one of your questions in one night. It took me years.
But please step out of the "scroll" life on social media. Don't be a scroll. Instead, think about being an enlightened individual who can bring substance and intelligence to conversations. It's not about getting a quick answer or demonizing manufacturers because the reality of everything does indeed, at some point, fall back on the consumer. It's your purchasing habits that keep companies in business. We all need to be responsible when purchasing any kind of product, not just pet food.
