They were probably happy to do the veterinary diet because they wanted the best for their pet. Upon realizing a lot of vet diets have a lot of useless ingredients(which stress the system with no benefit) like by-products, rice, glutens, wheat, beet pulp, etc etc, they wanted something better and found Acana, which is about as species appropriate as you can hope to get from commercially prepared food, with minimal indigestibles.

“Useless” ingredients are a common misconception unfortunately. People love to say our diets are garbage because of the marketing done by these pet store brands and help from Dr. Google. But a lot of research and science goes into veterinary diets and everything included is there for a reason.

By-products, for example, are not these awful inedible evils, I promise. Those bully sticks or pigs ears that dogs love so much, or those marrow bones or even antlers that pet owners rave are so good for cleaning their teeth, those are…Guess what? By-products. Everything included in pet foods by law has to be edible…That is why organizations like AAFCO exist, to ensure quality ingredients and to enforce this rule. There are no bones, horns, hair, hooves, etc etc and in fact, these things are singled out and fully removed. Instead by-products refers to organs like the liver and the stomach and the heart, which are actually packed full of more nutrients than just the muscle meat, and if we’re going for the biologically appropriate angle are exactly what a dog or a cat would eat in the wild. They don’t just eat the muscle and say eww, the rest of this is gross! We eat by-products all the time too…Milk, cheese, chicken wings, ribs, sausage…If we as humans were to have a by-product free diet it would be a pretty boring one!

Grains also get a pretty bad rap but they are full of essential fibres and oils that are first processed to be easily digestible. Meat by itself does not have every single nutrient needed for a balanced diet and the grain and rice are used to supplement it and add those missing nutrients. As for beet pulp, it’s simply fibre…It is added to help with proper and healthy digestion. How many times have you heard stories about cats vomiting everywhere, or a dog who has diarrhea on every single food they eat? Or even worse yet, a dog who has horrible gas? Odds are the food they are being fed doesn’t have enough fibre in it. I see cases like this on a daily basis, as well as a lot of angry, painfully constipated cats come trough my clinic and it is a lot of stress not only for them but for the owner as well.

All pet owners want what is best for their animal…And so do we. That is why we chose to be in the veterinary industry. However what’s best isn’t always what Acana or Blue Buffalo or the other big pet store brands use for their marketing. We are not here to poison your pet, or to pump them full of garbage…We want them to live a long and a healthy life just like you do.

Some AftG headcanons because I am Suffering
  • There’s a betting pool on whether Neil’s fashion sense is actually That Bad or if he’s just screwing with them at this point
  • (It’s actually just that bad)
  • The Foxes finally decide fuck the bet it’s time to intervene when they see Neil in like a bro tank, jorts, and neon crocs. None of them are willing to be associated with that mess anymore
  • Nicky definitely has at least a couple embarrassing stories from Aaron’s childhood that make appearances when he deems it necessary
    • “Hey Aaron, remember that time you wanted to see how far you could stick a crayon in your ear and started crying when you thought it touched your brain?”
    • “Fuck off Nicky”
  • Kevin tries to convince the rest of the team that he’s the Superior Player because of his superior diet and they’re all like. We literally watched you down an entire bottle of vodka last night
  • Renee can beat Matt in arm wrestling
  • Teaching Neil incorrect pop culture references and slang becomes the new team hobby
    • They tell him that ‘booty call’ is the correct term for a butt dial and he rolls with it. They’re anxiously awaiting the first time he manages to butt dial someone
    • He has been thoroughly convinced that Kanye West is known for singing Cotton Eye Joe
  • The only thing the twins agree on is that pineapples are the best pizza topping. Much to the disgust of literally everyone else
  • The Foxes start referring to Exy as anything but Exy (e.g. boxball, stickball, fake-lacrosse) just to see Kevin twitch
  • Matt and Nicky once decided to figure out which of their teammates is which Spice Girl
  • The only one they could unerringly agree on was Kevin as Sporty Spice
  • Like sure they all sport
  • But Kevin is just so Extra about it. Even more so than Neil
  • Despite their disagreements the game quickly caught on with the rest of the team and evolved
  • They’ll now attempt to assign each other to the members of literally any squad
    • “Look I see your point but Neil is clearly Dipsy”
    • “Neil is Po and I will physically fight any one of you assholes who disagrees”

Okay, so I’m, like, really suuuuuuper late to the party but I finally got to see “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (Ultimate Edition) tonight and something that honestly surprised me was how well I thought Ben Affleck handled playing Bruce/Batman.

He definitely had the bulk and size the part called for…

I knew I’d love Henry Cavill because, well, I already love his Clark/Superman…

…but Ben surprised me by holding his own. Which was a hard sell because, like, 97% of the movie is him trying to KILL my beloved Clark/Supes, so I was fully prepared to curl my lip at him through most of the movie. ;) The fact that I could still feel for him, even at the times when I was thinking, “Bruce, c’mon, man! Don’t be a jerk!” definitely says a lot!

So, yay! Well done! \o/

"Forget I even asked" dexnursey

“Hey. Um.” 

Dex glances up at the sound of Nursey’s voice, sticking his pencil behind his ear. Nursey’s frowning, his expression more hesitant than Dex has ever seen him. And that’s weird. Because Nursey never looks uncertain–he’s always got that chill face on, the one that drives Dex up a fucking wall. This isn’t a look he’s used to. Dex raises his eyebrows. “Sup?”

Nursey gestures to the chair across from Dex. “Can I sit?”

“Yeah?” Dex blinks, watching Nursey plop down and put his backpack on the back of the rickety dining hall chair. “You okay, dude? You’re doing, like, a face.”

Nursey wrinkles his nose, which just kind of makes Dex’s point, and then says, in a rush: “Okay, look, so. I was thinking about Winter Screw. And it’s coming up, and I know I’ve been kidding around, mostly, about setting you up with someone? And you haven’t been into it at all, which is cool, because, like, you’re not into my aesthetic or whatever, I get that. But we’ve also been, like, way chiller than we used to be? And I like hanging out with you–not just with the team or whatever, but like, when it’s just us. And then I was thinking, you know, Rans and Holster are trying to set me up with somebody, but I don’t really wanna go with some random person, and–”

Nursey,” Dex interrupts, because he’s actually a little worried that Nursey isn’t breathing. “Get to the point?”

“I–” Nursey breaks off, chews his lower lip for a moment–and wow, okay, that’s not distracting–and then blurts out, “DoyouwannagotoWinterScrewwithme?”

Dex stares. Gapes, really. Because–what? 

Because that. Does not make sense. Because Nursey is soft and gorgeous and languid and cool water, and Dex is–none of those things. Dex is hard edges and too-big ears and jerky movements and hot tempers. And Dex gets distracted by Nursey’s green eyes and his long fingers and the sweep of his curls when he takes off his helmet after practice, but there’s no way that Nursey would ever look at him like that. Dex knows empirical data, and that shit does not compute. It’s gotta be a joke, or a trick, or something.


He must be quiet for too long, staring, because Nursey’s cheeks darken slightly, his lips pressing together. “Okay, message received,” he says. Dex blinks, startled out of his train of thought, but Nursey’s still talking. “Sorry, this was–this was dumb, I shouldn’t have–forget I even asked you, okay, I’m sure Rans and Holster can find you someone you’d like better, I’ll just–”

“Yes,” Dex blurts out. 

Nursey stops. “What?”

“Yes, I’ll go with you.” His face is burning, and if this is a joke he’ll absolutely never look Nursey in the eyes again, but he can’t lose the chance. 

“You–really?” Nursey sits back down in his seat–Dex hadn’t realized he’d gotten half to his feet. His expression looks a little dazed, but the beginning of a smile tugs at the corners of his mouth. “Like, as friends, or…”

He trails off. Dex swallows. You miss every shot you don’t take, right? “No,” he says. “Um. Not as friends.”

Nursey’s grin is instant, and blinding, and without a trace of mocking or teasing. Something loosens in Dex’s chest and spills warm and fluttery into his belly. “Swawesome,” he says.

Dex grins back. “It’s chill,” he agrees, and Nursey’s laugh keeps him warm the rest of the day.


yes i made it a fan fiction, here’s the link.
