well, that's a shame. but i liken it to telling people what to feed their kids--they usually won't appreciate it. it reminds me of that commercial with the kids playing and one mother says, "jimmy looks a little slow today. what do you think?" and the other one says, "well, you are what you eat." the kid looks like a giant pack of french fries.
i actually do think it's more of a problem with the vets pushing SD. i fell for that years ago and got that and iams and my cats weren't exactly crazy about either (canned). it was pretty bland. not even knowing anything (or much) about feline nutrition, it annoyed me because i'd read the list of ingredients and it didn't look that much different from others and it was really expensive so i just started ignoring food advice from any vet techs. my vet himself wasn't pushy with me, it was always the women who worked in the office and i took it with a grain of salt.
i guess if people are interested they'll read up on it, if not, they don't want to be bothered. like maggie said on the vegetarian thread, i hate to preach about food because it's annoying. it annoys me when people insist i buy this kind of water filter or that kind of bathroom cleaner, so i figure if someone wants to know more about a subject they'll ask.
