This week Anna talks to the team from Paleo Ridge about the growth in the raw food market for pet parents, highlighting the health and behaviour benefits of feeding a natural species appropriate diet.
CEO Tyler Daly explains how the firm began , inspired by their own Rhodesian Ridgeback, diagnosed with cancer, and a severe prognosis. When his diet switched from processed to raw, the dog made a full recovery, and died of old age.
We discuss with Will Green sales & Marketing Director the growth of the raw food market as an expanding slice out the £3billion pet food market in the UK.
This week Anna is joined by Beverley Cuddy who amongst other dog-centric roles, is one of the Patrons of SAMPA - the Stolen and Missing Pets Alliance. They chat about the great news that government are introducing new legislation - the Pet Abduction Law to make penalties for dog theft in line with the crime.With specific legislation that recognises that dogs are clearly not ‘property’ or chattel with consequences of up to seven years in prison for ‘abducting’ a dog. The hope is that dog theft will decrease.
TV Vet and Campaigner Marc Abraham joined me on A Dog's Life to chat about Lucy's Law, the new legislation banning third party puppy sales. We also discuss the Lockdown boom in puppy love and the unscrupulous breeders that optimised this demand with rocketing prices and animal welfare issues
