I was looking for recipies for my dogs and most of the ingredients are not natural or very healthy. Its ok if you looking to provide home baked biscuites or human food for your pet.

I feed my dogs a home cooked diet as I don't like the ingredients in dried food. However I haven't cooked one thing from this book because I do not believe the recipes are healthy. Firstly calcium is added to each meal. At the beginning of the book there is a little bit of information about the effects of insufficient calcium, but nothing about the effects of its over use which are just as serious, mainly manifesting itself in skeletal problems. The recipes add calcium powder even when other good natural forms of calcium are present, i.e.Cheese,egss and milk. On the subject of the milk I don't feed cows milk. I find it often gives dogs diarrhea as they have difficulty in digesting the lactose - which is still present even in skimmed milk. Other ingredients in the recipes that I would not feed my dogs are Baking soda!, cream, mollasses and icing sugar. One recipe calls for 1 can of condensed tomato soup. I looked at the ingredients in a can I had in the cupboard and found that 1/2 a can contained 710mg of salt! again something I would not feed my dogs.

This is a great little book and good value - lots of cheap and easy recipes that make a change for your pet rather than horrid dry food or wet food packed with additives... plus it's good for your wallet too - just requires a little more time and effort than is required to open a tin. Dogs are so dependent on us for their food pleasure - and this is one way to give them it. It's just a little book - but if you don't expect Gordon Ramsay, you won't be disappointed (hopefully).
