I am pleased to announce that I shall be working more closely with this UK company. I have been using Nature Diet in my behavioural work for some years, and so this is a natural relationship for me.

Campaign for Real pet food
Have you ever wondered what goes into your pet's food? Just what exactly is a 'meat and animal derivative' or an 'EC permitted additive' – and should you be feeding them to your cat or dog? And how can you make sense of all that confusing marketing and choose a food that you can really trust? This web site will open your eyes and raise your awareness.
