Today’s Guest

Kohl Harrington – Director of Pet Fooled

My guest today is the man who BLEW THE LID on the commercial pet food industry with his documentary film, Pet Fooled.

Kohl Harrington’s mission is to STOP THE ROT when it comes to our dogs’ health! For the past decade he has been studying the pet food industry, its regulations, and the role of the FDA, in the production and marketing of commercial pet food.

He challenges our assumption that, if a food is “regulated” then it must be healthy…. Well, cigarettes are “regulated” but we all know they’re not healthy.

Where do the ingredients come from that go into our dog’s food? How are these ingredients defined? For example, if it says “corn” does that mean it has to be “corn” as we eat it, or is it just the cob after the corn is processed off it for human use? Who makes these decisions?

Regulation states that no meat other than that obtained by slaughter may go into the product, but if that’s the case, why does the EUTHANAZIA DRUG keep showing up in pet food? It begs the question: Are the regulations being enforced?


For the sake of your pet, and your peace of mind, tune in to today’s eye-opening podcast. Let’s all learn how to make better choices for our dogs!
