About the Author
Cathy Alinovi DVM Dr. Cathy Alinovi received her general veterinary education at the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine. However, the universe kept sending patients to Dr. Cathy that couldn’t be fixed by general veterinary medicine. So, she started by learning veterinary spinal manipulation (chiropractic to some). Many of her lame patients became much better. But there were a few who needed more. Dr. Cathy learned applied kinesiology as it applied to chiropractic. More patients got better. Then, she took the course that changed everything - it was supposedly about allergies. Well, it was about allergies, but really it was about feeding real food and what commercial food does to our pets. After a major guilt trip for feeding corn and by-products (but it’s a prescription line!!) to her allergy dog, she switched to real food and in 3 days her Lady dog stopped a lifetime of aloof behavior and became friendly and loving. Oh, and Lady stopped itching and shedding. After that, Dr. Cathy became certified in veterinary food therapy, herbal therapy, tui-na, acupuncture, and aromatherapy. She is a student of homeopathy, is completing her training in advanced functional neurology (there are still a few patients requiring more education), and she is an instructor of the Healing Oasis Wellness Center in Wisconsin. Nutrition is at the heart of every exam in her integrative practice, curing over 80% of all problems. Her practice, Hoofstock Veterinary Clinic, is located in Pine Village, IN providing care for dogs, cats, small ruminants, llamas, horses and livestock. Susan Thixton Susan Thixton, dubbed the 'Caped Crusader for Safe Pet Food', is a pet food safety advocate. Her website, TruthaboutPetFood.com provides pet food education to pet parents all over the world. To learn more about commercial pet food, read Susan's first book 'Buyer Beware, The Crimes, Lies, and Truth about Pet Food' and subscribe to the free newsletter on TruthaboutPetFood.com.

The bottom line here is that somehow, no matter how long it takes, I will get my cats to eat these balanced recipes. It's real food, and if you're a member of the Association for Truth in Pet Food and Petsumer Report, you'll do what it takes too. Most of the pre-made foods out there contain adulterated meat, fake meat, and so much worse. All the info is in the posts on ATPF. It's a consumer funded association that is so well worth our time and money that we can't afford not to join and support it. Google "Jerry's story/rendering plants" for even more reasons not to feed most pre-made foods, even if you believe you're feeding a good one. I believe you can ask Dr. Cathy Alivoni some alternative food-sourced nutrients via ATPF. She's a brilliant vet! And Susan Thixton, co-author and founder of ATPF is a dedicated and knowledgeable consumer advocate. Great sources of information!
I would have given it 5 stars if there were some cat treats. There are a couple of recipes for dog treats but, none for cats. My Kindle goes everywhere with me and it's easy to refer to an e-book to see what I need to buy. I still have to keep my list of cat treat recipes with me.
i never occurred to me that I could make them nutricious meals from my own kitchen.
My new vet is all about "Food is Medicine"...well he is right, for sure. My family is very health conscience in own own foods and my vet told me why not cook for them as well and gave me some sample recipes and what they neede in their daily diet..wow...dogs can have watermelon....never knew that...and..they love it.
The book was just what I was looking for. The meals are easy and with just a little planning before grocery shopping day I can have meals for us and them and know I am doing the best for my family.
They have even lost the 5 lbs the doc suggested and they look and feel better too.
Next I have to try the dog treats recipes that are in the book...!
