LIVE | How You're Storing Pet Food Could Be Creating a Big Problem

Scientists in Italy find over 70% of pet parents are storing their dog and cat food improperly and it may be creating a big problem for their pets. Rodney & Dr. Becker also discuss a common and misleading myth about phytoplankton; the surprising supplement that boosts memory and may help with cognitive decline; and a recent study that reveals almost 76% of dogs may not be as healthy as owners think they are, plus much more. Rodney & Dr. Becker discuss the latest research on nutrition and health in this replay of their weekly Facebook Live in the Inside Scoop. Plus they answer listener questions. Original LIVE aired 1.31.2021.
