Although the author has been criticised for repeating himself throughout the book, I find that useful because there is a lot to take in and it would be easy to forget something important that had been said earlier in the book. Also, it is laid out so that it is easy to find things quickly for reference without rereading the whole book and therefore some things need to be repeated as they are relevant to numerous sections. The book is very comprehensive and covers the principals behind raw feeding, feeding dogs at various stages of their lives, puppies, adults,senior dogs and gives examples of daily feeding menus amongst other topics.
Sourcing raw meat for dogs is becoming easier all the time as numerous companies are springing up supplying reasonably priced frozen raw meat ready mixed but you do need a good book, such as this, to make sure you are giving your dog a balanced diet.
Don't let the price of the book put you off, you'll save far more than that in the future on both food and vets bills, as raw fed dogs are generally healthier than their commercial fed friends. Although my dog was diagnosed with some pretty serious allergies early last year, which normally would have had me back and forth to the vets for treatments over the last year, it's not been necessary to go to the vets since shortly after starting raw feeding.
I would thoroughly recommend this book.
My husband, Arthur Fairhurst, like yourself, has made a life-long study of supplementing the body with additional nutrients for Bodybuilders and Spots People.
With his expert knowledge he put together a dietary plan for Ben. Ben was my Uncle"s Golden Retriever. My uncle passed away and we took Ben on, aged 9. His coat had lost its colour, he was lethargic and sad. After a number of months on his new regime the colour came back to his coat, he became full of life again and lived until he was over 15 years of age.
Good nutrition does work! Whether it be for animals or humans. Do feed yourself and your pet correctly
Fox, wolf and wild dogs and puppies eat whatever they can catch and scavenge, as do feral cats and kittens.
For these animals, it is survival of the fittest. It therefore follows that the more natural the diet can be for our pets, the healthier and happier they will be. Feeding the raw bones and meat diet is not difficult or expensive once you have got the hang of it, and I thoroughly recommend this book.
