|I'm with Max, I'd sure love to see some studies that prove otherwise healthy dogs (not suffering from secondary health defects such as kidney failure) can be harmed by too much protein.
I once got into a debate with a particularly brazen Science Diet employee who was in checking product at the local store... they were actually one of their nutrition training people, not just a sales rep. They were of course trying to make the "too much protein causes kidney issues" debate, which I bluntly asked them to produce hard evidence of this. They could not, and in not being able to do so, went on a tirade about how "WHAT IF the dog was predisposed to the condition, and excess protein EVENTUALLY led to problems" yada yada yada. Again, bluntly asked for studies documenting that EXACT number of dogs suspected to be predisposed to this condition, so that I could decide for myself if I considered the risk high enough to feed my dogs (who have no genetic history of kidney issues or renal failure) food that IMO is extremely protein deficient. AMAZINGLY, they could not produce those studies either!
So all these crap kibble companies can go wonder off in the woods for about as much as I care. They have proof of nothing, and this study proves only a CAN... not a SHOULD.
