Whereas "Give your dog a Bone" is about the BARF diet in general, this book very much deals with the nutrition and care of puppies - from antenatal into adulthood. Once again, Mr Billinghurst is a tad repetitive, but it does get the point home. His advice is sound and thorough, from feeding and nutrition to exercise, and it does force you to question the commercial pet food industry and how it brainwashes our newly trained vets. It helps you to see that what is perhaps convenient and "tasteful" for us, is not good for our dogs. The section on bone diseases is heavy going, but sound, glaringly obvious and frightening. My 17 week old pup munches happily on her food as do my older dogs. She is calm and full of energy, lean and strong. I would NEVER go back to commercial foods even if I was paid.
