I researched books and chose Lew Olson's because of her qualifications, experience, and high ratings on Amazon & elsewhere. I "looked inside" here and downloaded the book to my Kindle. In a short time, I read enough to be convinced to change his diet to one rich in protein and fat, and low in carbs. Cancer feeds on sugar and carbs, so this cancer-starving diet should help him for his last days.
At first, he couldn't even get up by himself, we had to help him up due to weakness in hindquarters. He used to be very active, but now couldn't even get up or down one step to outside without falling. Immediately, our formerly finicky dry food eater became eager for meals. He grew stronger, added weight, resumed daily walks little by little. It's now Dec 17 and he's almost back to normal. He's barking at deer in the yard again, straining at the leash on walks, getting up and down the patio steps, no more falls.
The difference is amazing, and the only thing we changed was his diet. I don't know if the tumor has shrunk or the cancer will disappear, but I believe that his liver function has greatly improved. We're using Dr Olson's recipes along with her immune blend and salmon oil supplements. We feel so guilty now for feeding our dogs kibble all those years. I'll update this review as time goes by

I know that the dog food companies and even vets promote the idea that commercial dog food is best for your dog and is complete and balanced but somehow it just never felt right to me that this very processed stuff could be better than fresh food.
It just reminds me of how doctors used to believe and tell women that formula was better than breast milk for babies- something we may think is incredible now but was believed at the time.
Also, it seems bizarre that the solution to the tartar problem is to brush our dogs teeth!
This book is extremely helpful if you want to feed fresh and makes it quite simple - whether you choose to feed raw or cooked.
I now feed my dog mostly cooked chicken, turkey, beef and lamb only braised on the outside, tinned sardines or mackerel (in water) once a week and offal (lamb, chicken or beef liver or kidney) once a week as well. We are lucky as we live in Ireland in the country and the beef and lamb are grass fed and local from the butchers. I add a small bit of cooked or raw vegetables to one of her daily meals, one orange and one green, for vitamins and fiber and to bulk up her meal. If raw its grated. The only carbohydrates are small pieces of fruit such as banana, strawberry, or watermelon as treats -occasional rice. I pierce fish oil capsules and she gets that once a day unless she's eating fish. I feed her twice a day as she is a small dog - so that's 14 meals a week.
I found it easiest to get a routine going- tinned fish Friday evening (fish fridays) , offal Monday ('awful' mondays), eggs for 1 or 2 meals in the week. I no longer feed her bones as she is such a gobbler it was too scary, and she broke a tooth.
The rest of the meals are a rotation of lamb, turkey, beef, chicken, whatever I happen to be getting from the butchers, but I do make sure that she isn't eating the same meat all the time. I don't feed raw eggs in shell, but cook the white - the yolk stays raw.
Everything I buy is stuff that is being sold for human consumption.
I never feed her bones without supervision.
I have plastic sandwich bags and portion the weeks meat meals in them and they go in the freezer- I take them out a days portion and put it in the fridge the night before to thaw and it's ready to go the next day- just meat or egg in the morning and I'll add whatever veg or supplement to the evening portion.
It's pretty easy and I don't think I will ever go back to kibble and my dog absolutely loves it! Her teeth and coat are better. Her poops are small and not smelly, except oddly enough, on those times when she gets some of our leftover cooked meat!
It's good background information, more breadth then depth.
I ended up getting the concise I needed information from websites.
Well worth the money
