While I would not go so far as following a vitamin regime or homeopathic treatment for dogs (I don't even do that for myself!) I found the information on the content of "average" dog food, treats and flea control very helpful in making consumer decisions.
I would agree with a previous review that Mindell does depend heavily on human physiology for his nutritional and medical advice for dogs. He also tends to be a bit "preachy" in his commentary on canine health.
However, commonly reported scientific studies on canine nutrition is lacking and none of the human-based nutrition regimes he presents would hurt a dog (only be a bit more expensive and/or time consuming.)So why not err on the safe side?
Moreover, I have had regular vets (non-hollistic)recommend some of the flea treatments he suggests; so something must be working.
When you discover the shocking ingredients in dog food and flea control you'll be glad you read the book and were offered some alternatives.
Oh, and my dogs absolutely loved the treats!
