The Easy way to change your world,
This review is from: Raw Meaty Bones Promote Health (Paperback)
This book is a true eye-opener and paradigm shifter.
For years I fed my dogs the "expensive" dog food from the vet, but they still had horrible skin problems, disgusting breath and nasty teeth. I felt so guilty about not feeding my dogs the 'natural' way (blending, cooking, mixing, grating, chopping veggies and meats every week, yuk!), that I had all but resigned myself to overpaying for bags of grain and sugar(aka:kibble) for my dogs.
After doing research on canine diets throughout history I discovered a new book,"Raw Meaty Bones" by Dr Tom Lonsdale. "This is it!", I thought. How could it get any easier? Buy a chicken at the store, throw it on the ground, let my dogs enjoy. They loved it, I loved it, and they haven't had to have their teeth cleaned in over two years. The vet keeps patting me on the back for brushing my dogs' teeth. Are you nuts? No way, I just feed them their natural carnivore diet of meat and bones.
And to the people who start screaming hysterically about not feeding dogs bones--who are you kidding? Honestly, what do you think companion animals have eaten since they were first domesticated? Huh? Whatever they were given, found, or killed themselves. Kibble is a modern invention, just like processed human foods, and both are high dollar industries with much to lose should we all wise up.
Do yourselves and your animals a favor--read Tom Lonsdale's book, and give your dog (and cat) a bone (a big, raw meaty one) today.

I absolutely agree. Dog food companies have a lot to lose if we all fed our dogs and cats appropriately. The only nutritional education vets receive is from dog food companies who come in to the school and give seminars. That's a little biased, don't you think? I've had my dog on raw meaty bones for about 4 months now. He is only two years old and his teeth were not looking bad yet. Since he has been on Raw Meaty Bones his teeth sparkle. I didn't think there was much to improve on there but I was very wrong. His breath is wonderful. His coat is shiney and soft. He sheds a lot less. His skin problems cleared up within a few weeks. He LOVES the diet!!! And so do I. It's easy and I know exactly what is in his food. It is recognizable!!! Those hard little pieces of kibble - I have no clue what is really in those things. There is no FDA for dog food. Even though many dogs have gotten sick and died by eating those chicken jerky treats from China they are still on the market in pet stores. Nobody has pulled them and there is no warning signs to be seen. We need to be our own advocates for ourselves and our animals. Let's start with nutrition.
