Have you watched Pet Fooled yet? All pet owners need to watch it.
A few weeks ago, Pet Fooled was recommended to me by a friend. It’s an investigative documentary about the commercial pet food industry. I was intrigued. Xena’s been showing food sensitivities to her food for the past 3 months all of sudden so I’ve been doing some research online about different pet food. I rented it from Amazon and watched it with curiosity.
Our pets are part of our family and we want to give them the best of the world. Do you know exactly what is in the food you give to your pets? Until this documentary film, there has been no other film to study the pet food industry. Remember Food, Inc from 2008? That documentary started a passionate movement that has had a positive impact on consumer education and buying choices, animal welfare, national health advocacy, food industry and farming. Ultimately, having a positive impact on the food we eat today. There is still a lot to be improved so the movement is ongoing. Now it’s time to take a closer look at the commercial pet food industry.
Fast forward to 3 weeks, I had a pleasure meeting Kohl Harrington, the director of Pet Fooled in person! He was super nice in person and I wanted to learn more about the stories of making this documentary. Lucky for us, Kohl agreed to do a Q&A for our readers! Yeah~! Meanwhile, go watch the film and let me know what you think. It’s available on Netflix and Amazon.

Thanks for the heads-up on this film…will definitely check it out!
I am not promoting one diet over another. I am merely encouraging people to research and educate themselves and make a conscious choice. 😊
Yes, the same way we should be informed about our own nutritional choices. I personally made some changes after watching Forks Over Knives.
I love this film! I am so grateful to the people who made it for helping so many and for bringing this heartbreaking reality to the attention of so many people who, like me, want to do everything they can to protect the animals they love!
I enjoyed the documentary as well. It was perfect timing! You have a lot of good information on your blog. Keep up the good work!
Thank you SO much for even looking at it lol I have dedicated my entire life to keeping my dog happy and healthy (I went through losing a dog to poor health due to kibble so that’s probably why!) it’s exhausting sometimes but Im OBSESSED with finding quality meat sources so feel like if I share it somewhere maybe I can save someone else some time or use the effort to make some small difference. At least my family now gets to eat the best grass fed beef within 100 miles of us lol really though thank you for looking at my site and for sharing the information from this documentary and your own life. It matters so much!!
