This book is wonderful...a total guide on how to feed your dog better!
Learn what nutrients should be in your dogs diet and how to get them in their food/snack source. Proteins, carbs, fiber, fats, minerals and vitamins all play important roles in your pets needs. Learn how to make "Suplemental Stew," a combination of nutrients to add to your pets diet. Calcium helps strengthen bones and teeth, learn how to add this important item to your dogs diet using something as simple as egg shells.
Our author provides a whole chapter on portion size for your pet. This is determined by how active your pet it and the number of pounds they are. Great resource!
Did you know that chocolate is toxic to dogs? What about onions, or grapes? Learn what things to share and what things to not share with your pets. There is a great list of things to share with your dog, with the appropriate portion sizes, in a wonderful chart format. Learn how to introduce some of these items to your pet.
Recipes! Wow! Sweet Potato Fries, I would of never guessed to cook sweet pototes for my dog. Recipes range from main foods for a meal to snack time. I love the "Allowance Per Day" chart at the bottom of each recipe that includes how much to give your size dog...no guessing! There are even sections of the book dedicated to how to feed your puppy according to how old it is in months, and what to feed your ailing dog.
If you would rather purchase your dog's food at the store, check out the chapter on "Choosing a Commercial Dry Dog Food." What a great resource, this chapter tells me what choose and what to not choose by looking at the ingredients in pet foods. We learn how to read the labels and are given some examples.
This book is a great resource for what to feed your pet, how much to feed your pet, and what your pet needs to have a healthy life.
I received this eBook free from the publisher for review. I was not required to write a positive review. These opinions about this book are my own.
