A dog owner is frustrated with the lack of attention she’s getting from pet food companies, and she’s starting to take action.
A Canadian pet food company has been named the “pet food advisor” for a number of years, and is a member of the Canadian Pet Nutrition Council, a group of companies and industry experts who work to promote pet food.
According to the company’s website, the council “works to promote the best practices for pet nutrition, promote sustainable pet food production and provide consumers with reliable, effective and safe pet food.”
Pet food companies aren’t necessarily interested in meeting the council’s goals, said Karen Sperling, CEO of pet food consultancy Pet Nutrition Institute.
They may think that they can help by being more transparent about their products, she said.
But she said there’s little to no evidence that these companies actually do a better job of providing the best nutrition for pets.
“The pet food industry is still very fragmented and they still have to do the best they can to meet the needs of pet owners,” Sperle said.
“There’s no question that the industry needs to do more to help with pet nutrition.”
According to data compiled by the Council on Nutrition and Food Safety, there are about 4,600 pet food advisors in Canada.
Most of them work in Canada, but there are also groups in the U.S. and other countries.
A representative for one of the companies, Feeder Foods, told CBC News that it was not involved in the council.
But Sperlling said the council is very concerned about pet food issues and wants to see pet food providers make it easier for pet owners to get the nutrients they need.
“I want them to do a much better job with the information they’re providing to pet owners and also to the consumers,” Sattler said.
The council has also been working with pet food manufacturers on a “food transparency and accountability” plan, and Sperlich said she’s hopeful that companies will be more transparent with pet health information in the future.
The Council on Pet Nutrition and the Pet Nutrition Association are the leading pet nutrition advocacy groups in Canada and the U, according to the council website.
The group has also launched a campaign called Pet Food For People, which seeks to increase awareness of the benefits of pet health and nutrition.
In an email, Feeders spokesperson Kate Ritchie wrote that the company believes pet food is a critical part of a healthy diet and that it’s important to promote it to consumers.
“We have a long history of working with governments, pet food producers and pet owners in Canada to support the health and well-being of our animals,” Ritchie said.
