Incentives offered by prescription pet food manufacturers to veterinarians for increasing their sales of the Rx foods…is this ethical?
Pictures speak a thousand words.
Is it ethical for a veterinary practice to accept “rewards” for increasing their sales of prescription pet foods? Is it ethical for a prescription pet food manufacturer to offer incentives to veterinarians for selling more Rx pet foods?
Though the above examples are from Purina Veterinary Diets – we can safely assume this is common practice with all of the prescription pet food manufacturers. And now that we know – this is definitely something to consider the next time your veterinarian suggests that your pet needs a Rx pet food.
It’s one thing if a pet has an illness that a diet needs to address. It’s completely different if a veterinarian is pushing a “Veterinary Diets GI product” just to win a flat screen TV.

Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
