Book Description

Feed You Pet to Avoid the Vet, by Greg Martinez DVM, is an introductory look at slow cooking and pet nutrition, and teaches you how to easily and economically prepare food for your dog or cat. You won’t have to worry and wonder about what’s in your furry friend’s food anymore. You’ll know, because you made it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Vet You Don't Want To Avoid! September 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Greg Martinez, D.V.M. is a rare treasure.

I appreciate his authentic compassion for his furry patients, savor his wit and humor, and subscribe to his YouTube channel. His informative and upbeat videos both educate and amuse. His message on home-feeding is priceless and much needed in our over-commercialized world.

I'm rating it five stars because I just love this guy and his mission to promote good pet health by feeding natural, wholesome foods. The same way we should be feeding ourselves.

Of particular importance to cat owners are the lengthy explanations and suggestions (based on personal experience with his own cats) on how to transition finicky cats to home-made food.

There's also plenty of special feeding info for allergic or obese dogs, and those with pancreatitis or diabetes.

It's not rocket science. It's easier to start than you might think.

Get your pets off of corn-based dog food. You can buy grain-free, dry commercial food and soak it before feeding with your home-prepared (wet) meat, veggie, rice mix and watch your dog/s thrive. Easy to prepare once a week, as per his instructions.

Dr. Greg explains in detail how to progress to feeding 100% home-made ingredients from there.

And your pets will benefit greatly even if you just want to supplement part of their diet with home-made meals.

I don't own a crock pot but feed my two giant breed dogs (100 and 145 lbs.) mostly home-prepared meals. Some raw meats, eggs and bones... and some cooked meals that I make periodically and freeze in portion sizes. I do have a powerful Vitamix which does short work of grinding up a whole cooked chicken, bones and all in just seconds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Common Sense Genius -- Safe and Easy! March 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book -- true, it's not exactly professional quality layout, but I couldn't have cared less. I'd spent far more on a different book by another vet that was essentially nothing more than a pitch for brand name supplements and a few recipes so complicated it made me wish I'd gotten a goldfish instead of a dog!

This book gave me the reassurance I needed in terms of knowing what to be sure I included in my dog's meals, and the guidance of a vet who makes properly feeding my dog as simple as his diet in the wild would have been. And it's true this book isn't full of recipes, either -- the fact that you don't need to have those lame cookie-cutter recipes is his whole point! He tells you what dogs need, and then you decide whatever you want to use within those guidelines. Such a relief!

The book is a snap (even fun) to read and showed me the EASY way to feed my dog truly healthy meals -- without the expensive supplementation song and dance, or overthinking and overworking myself until I regretted ever getting into this. Thank you, Dr. Martinez!

5.0 out of 5 stars Have switched to dog dish September 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have both this book and the first one. I love it. the dogs love the food and I can already see improvement in their hair, their skin and their stool. I give them Halo Spot's Stew for breakfast with either egg or sardines or yogurt and they get the dog dish recipe for dinner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative April 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been following the recipes and advice and I have to say my dogs even smell different. They don't have that dog smell and their ears are so clean, no more allergies!
