Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of meeting Kohl Harrington, the director and writer of the documentary Pet Fooled. The meeting was unplanned and the venue wasn’t right for me to ask a bunch of questions even though I wanted to. Luckily, Kohl was happy to do an interview for the blog at a later time.
The following is our exclusive Q&A with Kohl Harrington.
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.
