About the Author
A graduate of the Royal Veterinary College in London, Dr. Lonsdale has spent the last ten years campaigning to get the good-health message across to veterinarians and pet owners. In his new book Raw Meaty Bones he explains the advantages of feeding pets a more natural diet. When puppies and kittens under his care grew to be adults suffering degenerative disease and showing signs of premature aging, Tom started to take notice. At first I couldnt understand it says Tom. These animals were getting a modern diet and what I believed was the highest possible standards of care and yet were still developing dog-breath accompanied by sore and bleeding gums and rotting teeth. He began to suspect that he, and most other vets, were probably treating the symptoms rather than tackling the underlying problem.
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.

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.
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.

Dogs survived thousands of years without bagged kibble, doing guess what? Eating Raw Meaty Bones. This book is such an eye-opener to something that should really be just simple common sense. Dogs are meant to eat MEAT, not corn meal, wheat or high-fructose corn syrup. Cats need meat even more so.
The DAY we changed our dogs over to eating Raw Meaty Bones, we noticed an astonishing difference. They are healthier and happier because they are doing what dogs should do!
READ this book, take the little bit of extra time to FOLLOW it and you will be rewarded 1000x over by your animals.
*My husband has been involved in animal training for years and follows something close to Cesar Millan's approach. So as far as dog psychology goes, if you can't hire my husband, read Cesar's book and watch the Dog Whisperer!!
