The information presented in "The Dog Dish Diet" has been the best thing to happen in my dog's 13 years of life. He was one of those rare dogs that didn't "live to eat", he barely ate enough to keep him alive!!! Sammy (a Maltese) only weighed 8 lbs. and when he started skipping meals and lost 3 lbs., I was really getting worried. When I began following the advice given in "Dog Dish Diet" Sammy started wanting to eat two and sometimes three times a day! Now, he is healthier, his coat feels soft and lush, and he no longer licks his feet obsessively (which can be related to food allergies)

The book is full of valuable information, presented in a no-nonsense but readable and entertaining format. If you love your pet, get this book!!!

Dog Dish Diet is a remarkable book. Now, before I go into detail, let me be completely honest and transparent. I'm co-publisher at Riparian Press. We published Dr. Greg's book. But we chose to publish the book because we were so impressed with Dr. Greg's knowledge and professionalism. This veterinarian has almost 30 years of experience. He's used his diet therapy on dog patients and his own pets for some 10 years. The results have improved and often completely cured skin and ear ailments (itchy, raw red skin), hotspots, bowel and urinary tract conditions, mild seizures, and obesity.

I became so interested in Greg's approach, I decided to apply it to my three aging cats. Sabrina and Samantha vomited way too much, and Angus (a rescue) wanted to eat all the time. Angus had become too heavy, and I worried he'd get feline diabetes. In short, Angus looked like a football--pointed on both ends and round in the middle. Now a word of warning, cats cannot safely eat dog food because they need the essential amino acid, Taurine. It's a supplement in cat food. It's not in dog food. I used Dr. Greg's book to create my own approach to feeding the cats.

It worked. Angus started losing weight and without starving. Today (about 6 months later) he's a healthy weight and just beautiful to look at. The girls seem to have much more settled stomachs. Vomiting is rare these days...except when they need to expel a hairball. So I am a believer.

I can honestly say that Riparian Press published this book because we believe it's going to be an important handbook for dog owners that want to feed their dogs well. And Greg's approach does not require special supplements, exotic diet ingredients or specialized diets. It's simple. It's common sense. I believe Dog Dish Diet will become the bible for dog nutrition. And that's why we decided to publish this book.

My dogs have always had very sensitive digestive systems...I tried all kinds of things to try and get it under control. By following Dr. Greg's Dog Dish Diet, my dogs are happy and healthy and so am I. The transformation was amazing and quite simple to achieve and did not take long to see real results. My dogs digestive systems are under control. Their skin and coats are looking amazing and they are no longer itchy. We all couldn't be happier. I recommend this book for any dog owner who cares about their dog's health and well-being...it will make a difference!

My food doesn't come in pellet form in a bag, so why should my best friend's? After reading an article in the NY Times about feeding fresh food to your dog, I decided to do some research. I did not do this for health issues or anything like that. My dog, Murphy simply did not like to eat. I know that sounds crazy, a dog not eating! Every dog I know has devoured whatever they can find, food or not. I was baffled. What could I do to get this dog to eat? I tried changing foods, dish soap; I fed him on the carpet and I raised the bowl off the ground so he wouldn't have to lean down. Nothing worked; some days he ate, some he didn't. Murphy is a pretty awesome dog, so finding a solution to this problem became my number one goal.

I searched high and low on the internet for dog food recipes. The recipes were out there, but I had no clue who designed the recipes or if they were good for my dog. It took me a little while to find 'Dog Dish Diet' but once I did I was intrigued. The book is written by a vet and gets good reviews. As a lawyer, I know that a degree does not make you smart. In fact, I have met some really stupid lawyers along the road, so how could I know that Dr. Greg was not a quack? Well, I went to his website and read what he had to say. Most importantly (to my uneducated mind), house dogs evolved from the wolf. Of course we all know this is true...there can be no other explanation of where dogs came from. After all, a wolf is really just a wild dog. What do wolves eat? Whatever they can find or kill, I guess. Dr. Greg also explained the domestication of wolves. Apparently when people lived in camps, wolves would hang around and eat their garbage/leftovers. Wolves have been around for thousands of years in the wild.
