Pet food (yet again)

I stumbled upon the Dolitter vet blog a few weeks ago, and have enjoyed reading through her thoughts and experiences as a vet in Miami. She has a series of posts about vets and pet food companies (part 1, part 2, and part 3) that are worth a read if you have some extra time. I don't agree with her views completely, but she does a really good job of pointing out some of the things that make me uncomfortable about the relationship between vet schools and pet food companies.

The question remains, how do we break those ties? Who will come in to provide the funding that currently comes from Hills/Iams/Purina?
