Not Dr. Smart, but I can say the answer to that would be a resounding no. Almost all pet food research is sponsored by the pet food companies themselves, and they don't exactly want to prove that their own products aren't as optimal as they'd like us to believe. Having said that, there is currently a study being funded through the Winn Feline Foundation regarding whether commercial raw and homemade raw diets provide any health benefits to cats: http://www.winnfelinehealth.org/Page...nts2009p2.html
I'd love to know the parameters of the study and still have my doubts about the validity of it.
