Good news there is a book off the press. It's called Raw Meaty Bones. It is a FANTASTIC read. -- Catherine O'Driscoll, Canine Health Concern
The wealth of information on health and other matters makes it deserving to be on the "must read" list. -- Linda Johnson, Journal of the Victorian Canine Association
About the Author
In fact, more than 75% of domestic pets over the age of three years suffer from periodontal disease (rotten teeth and gums). This can lead to other debilitating, even life-threatening diseases affecting the heart, kidneys and immune system. Irritating skin diseases and behavioral problems reasons many owners consult their vet are often due to the canned and dry pet foods.

Happily I read this book and my eyes were open to the cause of my dog's suffering. Mr. Lonsdale explains in detail in a manner that is easy to understand just how manufactured pet food harms the health of our companion animals. He then goes on to describe the ideal diet for our domesticated predators and offers tips for feeding the Raw Meaty Bone diet successfully.
I confess that I merely skimmed the parts of the book that dealt with his noble efforts to convince the veterinary profession to promote the Raw Meaty Bone diet to their clients. Although I feel that this was an important issue to discuss it is, perhaps, something that should be addressed in another forum.
After emergency surgery to treat an abscessed tooth and a doggy prophy (teeth cleaning) I put my dog on the Raw Meaty Bone diet. It has only been a few weeks but he is already starting to heal from the conditions that made his life on kibble so painful.
I would urge all of those who live with carnivores to read this book. Your pets will thank you for it.
If you choose to keep carnivorous pets, Tom Lonsdale's books (see also Work Wonders)explain why you must give your friendly wolves and wild cats a diet that predators need to keep their mouths and bodies healthy. If you feed commercial kibbles and canned mush, pets' teeth are coated with gummy sludge that infects thier gums and creats chronic disorders.
This book is worth several reads. It's impossible to learn all the reasoning and information on one reading, in part because so much of it counters what we have been taught about pet feeding. As a breeder of Labrador retrievers, I can attest to the enormous health benefits of switching from commercial junk foods to BARF diets and finally to the right diet for dogs -- raw-meaty-bones. Not only do all those itchy skin and hot spots go away, the dogs have clean teeth and healthy gums without professional dental cleanings that often resulted in the loss of rotting teeth. The dogs have great vigor and overall health. They are happy to eat what Nature intended.
To get a preview of the book and feeding raw-meaty-bones, look at Dr. Lonsdale's web site, [...]
I wish I had read this book when I had my beloved German Shepherd Max as he suffered from chronic skin disease which I now believe could have been improved if I had known about feeding raw food. I am waiting for our new dog who is a Golden Retriever who is now 3 weeks old. I will definitely be feeding our new dog raw. Thanks for all of the information.

It explains in great scientific detail why commercial pet food causes so many illnesses for our pets.
Think about how many dogs & cats you know with health problems, from itchy skin and bad teeth to heart problems and cancer. How many people do you know whose animals have had to be put down after illness? How many pets do you know with 'dog breath'? This is not natural at all, and is a sign of ill health. Have you been told your dog should be put under general anaesthetic every few years to have their teeth scraped clean? Does that really seem a good idea?
True, as one reviewer pointed out, the book could do with a little more information on how to switch diets, but there are other books on raw food for dogs, including one by the same author which help further with that.
If you need more convincing, then Google 'Andrew Lewis Pet Food Secrets' for another take on the damaging effects of shop bought pet food.
This is quite a thick book, but you don't have to read every chapter - if you just read: Part I Pet Health, which is 140 pages long, you'll get all the important stuff you need to know.
If you own a dog or cat, please, please do them a favour and change their diet as soon as possible!
Sheds light on how the modern pet food industry exploits pet owners and their pet's health for profit (allegedly!).
What the book advocates may not be to everyone's liking, but you can't argue with the facts or what mother nature intended, and it's certainly preferable to the cancerous lumps and mouldy ingredients that are found in modern "highly researched" commercial foods.
