Combining footage from interviews with the late great David Bowie and contributions from those who knew him personally, this documentary celebrates the illustrious life of one of the greatest artists to ever grace the stage.
I'm not going to claim to be an expert on animal nutrition but I have to point out that there are several inaccuracies in this film that prevent me from recommending it.
First of all, dogs are omnivorous, it is fine for them to consume a small portion of their carbohydrates from plant material. The film compares them to wolves which are carnivores, but neglects to mention that a dogs digestive system has evolved in the thousands of years since dogs were first domesticated.
The experts they have are an intergrated vet (holistic medicine), a rehabilitation expert who specialises in falconry, and a lawyer. These aren't the best candidates, why couldn't they interview a standard small animal vet who would ideally be able to offer the best advice?
What it comes down to is the film suggests you feed a raw food diet, which is good advise for young pets. If you feed them raw food at a young age they can digest it easily but an adult dog or cat cannot simply switch from dry to raw. It is a slow process of substituting one food for the other to prevent problems such as diarrhoea or constipation. Not to mention that most people would prefer to feed raw but the cost is so much more than dry food that the consumers are kind of limited for choice.
