Want to help your dog live a long and healthy life? This informative, easy-to-read book, based on the discovery of how food affects genes, will empower you to do that. Practical and useful, it will also be a key text for veterinarians and animal health professionals at our College. --Dr. Barbara Fougere, veterinarian, author and educator in Integrative Veterinary Medicine, Co-Founder College Integrative Veterinary Therapies
This seminal book, confirming that nutrition is the first medicine, is not just for the health of dogs. It is a major contribution to the health-through-food revolution, which will expand the minds and practices of veterinarians and canine caregivers and should be a required text for all students of veterinary medicine and nutrition. --Dr. Michael W. Fox, author of Healing Animals & the Vision of One Health

I think the best part of this book is that it provides solid scientific explanations as to how food acts and reacts in the system and does so in terms that scientists will appreciate while allowing lay persons to also understand the concepts. Sources are provided throughout the book and the
complete index helps you find the subject you wish to visit again quickly and easily.
This is a very positive book filled with meaningful information that is sure to become a continual reference for dog and cat owners and will be appreciated by parents who want to provide good nutrition for themselves and their children.
I cannot recommend it any more highly; a must have for your personal library.
Unlike too many others with extreme biases at either end of the spectrum (such as "you should only ever feed dogs a prey model diet! All commercial diets are poison! No, you should feed the best commercial cooked food! Raw will give your dogs diseases!" and so on) this book avoids the hysteria, and presents the facts and the evidence. A lot of what they have to say about many of the commercial kibble does not make for comfortable reading at all. But it does need to be known more widely.
The best thing is that no matter what main diet you choose, they offer plenty of advice on what you can add/subtract/modify in order to offer your dog the best possible chance of good health, and explain why it matters and how it works. There is also much guidance on feeding for special conditions, including arthritis, diabetes or cancer.
The only things that detracted a bit for me is that it is wholly USA based, so all brands mentioned are only those in the USA. Plus, I could have done with a bit less information on the lab test available, especially in a book. It felt a little bit like pushing one's own barrow and sat a bit uncomfortably for me - particularly since I'm in another far away country. But these gripes aside, brilliant book. One I'll reread several times, I suspect. I'm already recommending it to others and quoting bits.
