I agree with Anil that Vets have knowledge no doubt. However, they fail to keep it updated and have a fixed mind set and would not like to transgress in areas that would affect their business (euphemism for profits/commissions). The two local vets here are all for promotion of Pedigree and Venky's and some Royal Canin with loads of petcareindia products like Provical, Proviboost, etc. that are all well displayed and referred to at the drop of a hat to unsuspecting clients. In the last six months I have researched the net a lot and 'am a member of a number of forums from where I have learned a lot about especially packed dry pet foods and vaccinations the two killer items for our dear canine friends. At dogspot I learned a lot of unethical breeding. About Pedigree visit http://www.genuineanswers.com/

Usually a human doctor would not arrive at an assessment and recommendation without some lab values or diagnostic test for life threatening diseases, but most vets treat their client's canines/felines as laboratory animals to experiment their skills on. For example I was talking to a local vet less than a km away of a stray having a harsh barking cough for over a year and if he could come over and have a look as it would not let me touch it let aside carry it. First of all the vet refused to come over and wanted the stray to be brought to his clinic as he suspected that the stray was having Distemper or/and Parvo. Oh my God Distemper & Parvo and living with it for over a year!! And that too with no signs of it to its pup of 4 months! On the other side of the line I am sure the vet must be licking his lips for the money he was going to make off me by injecting a plethora of injections and prescribing tonics off his shelf.
