5.0 out of 5 stars Only for the perceptive, 7 July 2006

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Pottenger's Cats: A Study in Nutrition (Paperback)
The sub-title of this book is a study in nutrition which is exactly what it is about. It dates back to the 30s and 40s yet is more applicable in today's world. Its implications are far-reaching yet the study does not seem to have been replicated; I wonder why? Pottenger's own notes (which are also available) make fascinating reading. This treatise set me on the course to further self-study into nutrition and, as the consequence, today (at the age of 75) I am in remarkably good health and biologically I am told that I look and act 15+ years younger than my chronological age! Additionally, I have two Norfolk terriers who are thriving on Pottenger's recommended diet sometimes known among pet owners as the BARF diet. Amazingly, some vets reject Pottenger's findings as the studies were not conducted under today's scientific criteria but, those who do, are acting out of ignorance. The book is best regarded as a primer on nutrition and its principle is worthy of adopting by anyone interested in good health.

Not recommended to readers of fiction!

5.0 out of 5 stars From the cat's mouth - the raw, famous experiment, 11 May 2011

This review is from: Pottenger's Cats: A Study in Nutrition (Paperback)
Pottenger's experiments with cat's diets are famous amongst companion animal nutritionists.

As a final year student in BSc Animal Science this resource has been a valuable alternative to second-hand reviews of Pottenger's experiments. There is truly no replacement for the experimenter's own interpretations, especially with this experiment - as many authors have twisted Pottenger's words, and misquoted results.

But, of course, this is not for the lay person, and requires some former knowledge of nutrition.

This review is from: Pottenger's Cats: A Study in Nutrition (Paperback)
I think this book should be required reading for every VET.
And on top of that every pet owner could learn tons from it as well.
