The book is full of valuable information, presented in a no-nonsense but readable and entertaining format. If you love your pet, get this book!!!
I became so interested in Greg's approach, I decided to apply it to my three aging cats. Sabrina and Samantha vomited way too much, and Angus (a rescue) wanted to eat all the time. Angus had become too heavy, and I worried he'd get feline diabetes. In short, Angus looked like a football--pointed on both ends and round in the middle. Now a word of warning, cats cannot safely eat dog food because they need the essential amino acid, Taurine. It's a supplement in cat food. It's not in dog food. I used Dr. Greg's book to create my own approach to feeding the cats.
It worked. Angus started losing weight and without starving. Today (about 6 months later) he's a healthy weight and just beautiful to look at. The girls seem to have much more settled stomachs. Vomiting is rare these days...except when they need to expel a hairball. So I am a believer.
I can honestly say that Riparian Press published this book because we believe it's going to be an important handbook for dog owners that want to feed their dogs well. And Greg's approach does not require special supplements, exotic diet ingredients or specialized diets. It's simple. It's common sense. I believe Dog Dish Diet will become the bible for dog nutrition. And that's why we decided to publish this book.
I searched high and low on the internet for dog food recipes. The recipes were out there, but I had no clue who designed the recipes or if they were good for my dog. It took me a little while to find 'Dog Dish Diet' but once I did I was intrigued. The book is written by a vet and gets good reviews. As a lawyer, I know that a degree does not make you smart. In fact, I have met some really stupid lawyers along the road, so how could I know that Dr. Greg was not a quack? Well, I went to his website and read what he had to say. Most importantly (to my uneducated mind), house dogs evolved from the wolf. Of course we all know this is true...there can be no other explanation of where dogs came from. After all, a wolf is really just a wild dog. What do wolves eat? Whatever they can find or kill, I guess. Dr. Greg also explained the domestication of wolves. Apparently when people lived in camps, wolves would hang around and eat their garbage/leftovers. Wolves have been around for thousands of years in the wild.Read more ›

I thought it was okay. Nothing I didn't read on the Internet and some was common sense. I wouldn't recommend this book to a friend for the price.Published 5 months ago by C. Caputo
