Woof Meow Show with animal nutritionist Dr. Richard Patton

Did you know that what you feed your pet directly affects their health and longevity? The feeding of excess carbohydrates to dogs and cats is one of the most significant issues that we need to address if we want to feed our pets for optimal health, according to Dr. Richard Patton PhD.

He was first interviewed for the Woof Meow Show in 2016. Many of the issues related to canine and feline nutrition that Dr. Patton described in that episode are still relevant today.
