More > benefits to so many of his patients. He draws on more than forty years of experience in holistic veterinary practice.
In the author's opinion, expensive and vigorously-marketed manufactured dog foods are not the best way to feed your dog for tooth, musculo-skeletal and immune health and for a long, happy and active life. Fresh food is best for us and for our dogs.
The dog's omnivorous adaptation makes him an easy animal to feed, which means that dietary advice needs to be neither complex nor strictly regulated. If wished a raw diet or prey-model diet can be fed. This book provides a simple guide to taking your dog's health and well-being into your own hands. Your dog will thank you for it, every day.
