SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Has anyone ever heard of vets receiving so-called "kickbacks" from food manufacturers in exchange for recommending their food? It makes my blood fairly boil to hear members of the general public make this claim so confidently. I personally have never, ever encountered such a practice, but before I start tearing my hair out and scaring away clients, I wanted to know if there is any factual basis at all behind these claims. Thanks!
