I think there is no harm .They are highly educated people who can easily guide the buyers about the health of pups and food etc. Mind it.people coming to buy pups from them are looking for pets with a few exceptions. Breeders on the other hand would buy pups from other reputed breeders and they normally buy dog food directly from distributors at discounted prices.Thanks

Problem is if vets are consumed by food and pup trade,semen banks,blood banks for dogs,latest of surgical investments and experties we will never see.As of now emergency vets are almost extinct species.Either some
NGOs or government hospitals are the only way out.Private surgeons r rare and expensive,post surgery treatment is expensive and not accessible.If vets are not oriented in that direction,nobody else can bring in these essential services.

"promote dog food": A vet that promotes manufactured dog food is not doing the right thing.
Most of the complications that dogs develope are as a result of consuming manufactured dog food.

why not?the reality of this dog world is a vet is the only qualified and educated person wid a university degree and unfortunately no professional courses are there for dog breeders and trainers so anybody and everyody who ever had a dog or not is a dog expert??public wants to deal wid a vet and ask him for help in behaviour modification,training,mating services,food n snacks they want advice from the vet according to his understanding and belief.watz wrong with it??however ,i agree the importance vets places to these value added services depends on individual vets .
i believe most vets now have emergency services available .we have 24 hr emergency since 1989.oxygen cylinders ,gas anaesthesia ,ultrasound are now ava. at many vet clinics.the market is just now opening up.i am sure we will see many more technological advancements in vet practices with in next 2-3 yrs.

Vet always play important role. When i started with pups i knew only Pedigree.. then vets educated me of calcium, multivits etc. They have knowledge no doubt.

Sure they r and we all want them to play their major role,as a vet.Only they hold the power to keep our lions hail and healthy.That is precisely the point.If their focus can not be on medicine or rather they find it difficult
to support themselves with their prime role,then it is alarming.

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 https://www.genuineanswers.com / pets-animals/what-is-the-most- popular-dog-food.htm. 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.
