An education for pet owners,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Whole Pet Diet: Eight Weeks to Great Health for Dogs and Cats (Paperback)
I barely have time to cook for my husband and myself, so there's no way I'm going to spend what's left of my free time making chicken stew for my dog...however, having said that, I did find this book to be a wealth of information about the kinds of things that need to be in her diet and the kinds of things that are actually contained in commercial brands of dog food. It prompted me to switch to a premium, organic meat-and-vegetable brand of dog food (sans grains, which I now know to be hard on her digestive system.) Yes, it's more expensive, but she's worth the extra money, and I feel more secure buying her food from a small, independent producer than getting huge sacks of kibble containing God knows what detritus from God knows where.

Just Me says:
I have eight cats and two dogs. All food homemade twice a day.
I'm sure I have a bit more time than you do and it can be a challenge.
I only teach part time and it can be difficult. I also have health issues that can be debilitating.
There are canned products that are very good.
Just take a bit of time to check up on what the best choice is.
Stay away from the horrid garbage food that is out there.
You'll be glad you did in the long run.
