The complete, authoritative guide that takes the guesswork out of feeding your dog home-prepared food is back.

Because they play such an important role in our lives and families, we want our dogs to have happy, healthy and long lives. Providing the best nutrition is one of the most important steps you can take towards achieving this goal.

The problem is that most of us aren't nutritionists and there are so many conflicting opinions about dogs' dietary needs -- feeding your dog can become an overwhelming challenge. This invaluable reference will guide you through the nutritional puzzle with confidence. It provides you with all the information and tasty recipes (tested and approved by dogs) that you need to feed your dog a natural home-prepared diet, which is one of the best investments you can make in his/her health.

Written by a veterinarian and two dog experts, it's filled with expert advice on understanding your dog's nutritional needs and building the framework to optimum health through proper diet. Over 100 easy-to-prepare recipes are clearly organized by weight range, further ensuring the right diet for your dog. There are also sections devoted to special needs diets, and on treats your dog is sure to enjoy.

Editorial Reviews

[Review of earlier edition:] Easy to read. It is presented in layperson terms with big, bright text and with especially important information set off by boxes.

E-Streams, Vol. 6, No. 5

[Review of earlier edition:] Discusses a wide-ranging number of topics and provide vital information for your pet's health.

Dayton Daily News

[Review of earlier edition:] I certainly give Better Food for Dogs two thumbs up and encourage dog owners to consider cooking food for their precious pets. Yes, it takes time and extra effort but in the end you'll have happier and healthier dogs.
