***The first guide to both raw feeding and healthy homecooked meals for dogs. In the whirlwind of information about local, organic, and whole foods, it’s easy to forget that our canine companions can also benefit from—and deserve—a more natural and nurturing diet. Preparing Fido’s food at home may seem daunting, but it’s really not, says Lew Olson in Raw & Natural Nutrition for Dogs. Olson discusses canine nutritional needs and explains the research on how home-prepared foods, particularly raw foods, can meet pets’ needs better than commercial, processed dog food. Step-by-step instructions and recipes make preparation easy. The book includes charts with the recipes, instructions on keeping diets simple and balanced, guidelines on preparation, suggestions for finding ingredients, and how much to feed a dog by body weight. There are recipes for healthy adult dogs as well as guidelines for puppies, senior dogs, and dogs with health conditions including pancreatitis, renal problems, gastric issues, allergies, heart disease, liver disease, and cancer. Pet owners seeking to give their dogs a better coat, better skin, and healthier teeth and gums, as well as longer lives and more stable temperaments, are sure to welcome this book. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Ancestors and canine cousins of our dogs didn't eat "krunchy kibble" or "meat 'n gravy in a can." They ate what they found or caught... and it wasn't cooked or "enriched" either! It was high in protein, with balanced fats, and usually included a few fruits, vegetables and grasses. Steve Brown, an expert on canine nutrition, shows how you can bring the benefits of the canine ancestral diet to your dog by feeding him differently as little as just one day a week. And no, you won't need to lead a pack of dogs on a hunting expedition! Just follow Steve's well-researched and easy to follow ABCs to make improvements to whatever your dog currently eats. BONUS! Raw food or home prepared feeders will learn how to balance nutrients more precisely, especially fats, for optimum health. A dog diet to get wild about! • Learn about the latest research on the importance of protein and healthy fats in your dog's diet. • Find out why commercial foods can't include these fragile-but-crucial nutrients, and how you can make sure your dog gets them. • Just one day a week, or more frequently if you choose, follow the simple recipes that balance the nutrition in the commercial food you are feeding—wet or dry!

An integrative and revolutionary way to treat your animals, combining holistic and natural medicine with the best of modern science. Dr. Barbara Royal is a passionate, dedicated, and innovative veterinarian with a unique approach to medicine. Her patients have included countless different species from German shepherds at her private practice, to baby owls in the wild, to zebras in the zoo. Her clients are the humans who live for their pets, much like she does. Her ability to lend a voice to sick or injured animals and carry out the best treatment for them is unmatched. An expert diagnostician with a background in zoo and wildlife medicine, Dr. Royal has learned that adhering to the teachings of Western medicine is often not the best way to fully cure her patients. With the clinical experience to know when to use surgery, medications, and alternative methods, plus an observant and empathetic understanding of the evolutionary needs of her patients, she individually tailors the Royal Treatment to ensure that each pet (and owner!) lives as happily and healthfully as possible. The knowledge she has gained from wild animals gives her valuable insight into the cat in your kitchen and the dog in your living room. Our pets have all evolved from wild species and adapted to domestic life in many ways, but their natural characteristics are genetically fixed. In order for our pets to meet their full health potential, we must be mindful of these natural nutritional, emotional, and physical needs. Applying common sense in this way, along with the support of medicine, nutrition, elements of Eastern medicine, and physical rehabilitation, fosters an animal’s natural inclination toward optimal health and immunity. There is no placebo effect in animal medicine, and Dr. Royal has seen amazing results with her integrative approach, time and time again. A must-have for all pet owners, these pages shimmer with ingenious advice, insight, and scientific originality. But most of all, a veterinarian with heart comes through in every word. Dr. Royal empowers animal lovers to lift their pets into a realm of natural health and happiness that will be palpable from shiny coat to bouncy step. *** Learn everything you need to know about taking care of your pet naturally, including: • Functional nutrition and diet recipes • Commercial pet food: recognizing the good, the bad, and the unhealthy • How diet and protein levels specifically affect your pet’s health and behavior • Judicious use of herbs and medicines • How to detect if your pet is feeling pain and where • Noninvasive, nonsurgical treatments for genetically flawed hips and other arthritic joints • How to know if your pet is happy • How to clean your dog’s, cat’s, or rabbit’s ears—the right way! • Pet supplements explained • Which vaccines to give or not give your pet • Evolutionary insights into your pet’s behavior • Getting your new puppy off to a perfect start • How acupuncture works • Geriatric wellness and end-of-life care . . . and more

Feeding raw meat is healthier and more appropriate to your dog's needs A practical introduction to the trend towards feeding dogs in a natural and species-appropriate way. With the debate about the most appropriate way to feed "man's best friend", more and more dog owners are realising that feeding raw meat, combined with fresh vegetables and oils, is a cheaper and more importantly healthier alternative to dry dog food and tinned meat. Some of the positive effects can be seen in healthy skin, a glossy coat, less body and mouth odour and a strong immune system. The author explains the raw food diet for dogs in a clear and practical way, demonstrating a daily routine, describing the ingredients and dispelling the prejudices. Silke Böhm compiles shopping lists, describes meats that are especially benefi cial for dogs and keeps at the ready negative lists of harmful substances. Suitability for daily use and practical relevance are in the foreground, making the raw food diet easy for anybody to manage.
