Warning...this post might make you laugh. I was at Tractor Supply Company in Ankeny this weekend at my wellness clinic, and this really nice woman was hanging around my booth. She was being so sweet to the little puppy I was working with. She was interacting with the owners while I was focusing my attention on the exam, history taking, and yada yada yada. (PAYING CLIENTS first she whispered...wink wink). I was sort of annoyed that I wasn't getting to talk with my clients 100% but they were open to her presence therefore so was I. Anyhoo..I played with the puppy....had fun hearing old stories about other labs the owners had. After I was done taking my time with my clients I shook the woman's hand and introduced myself. I assumed she was my next client. She seemed so nice. Nope...I am bla bla bla from Hills SCIENCE DIET and..I cut her off kindly. "I was the student rep for Science Diet as a student, and fed it to my dog as well. I no longer recommend it for my clients because I actually took the time to read the label." But wait she said...we have a new line with 'natural natural ingredients'. No thanks.
My nutrition training is now thankfully through the Chi Institute. (feel free to click on the link to see where my food ideas now originate).
