    My favorite line on that website is this one:

    "Unlike many other canine nutrition courses, this one is not connected with any commercial dog food company and as such is unbiased and independent."

    How refreshing. Too bad the US veterinary schools don't follow that policy. Instead, they turn their canine nutrition cirricula over to kibble manufacturers, and I mean those who make the worst kinds of kibble, like Hill's Science Diet. The consistent result is the turnout of graduates who are totally ignorant about canine nutrition and who pass their ignorance on to their patients' owners.

    I would recommend that vets sign up for this course.
