In his Unlocking book, which I recommend over this book, readers will gain a much greater appreciation for the role of balancing fats, proteins, nutrients in homemade diets against the backdrop of amounts/1000 kcal consumed. It is that book that helps the reader understand how a casual diet can become a casualty diet.
Additionally, Steve has a great pdf on line http://tinyurl.com/nak5wrh about imbalances in certain oft-used/cited/touted diets. (Though he is quite careful and respectful to say "My purpose is to give you the best information possible so you can help your clients plan diets that are closer to their goals of feeding natural diets. I do not make any health claims, and I am not implying that lack of compliance with these nutrient profiles causes any health or temperament problems. I have great respect for the developers of these diet plans, and have seen many excellent dogs raised with these plans. My objective in this article is not to criticize these plans; it is simply to offer suggestions on how to help make these diet plans more nutritionally compliant with recognized standards.")
This paper is what got me interested in Steve Brown's work. I happen to appreciate recognized standards--and some offerings on the internet fall short. His work is worth reading for those who want to be well-informed and able to assess diets as an informed layperson to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff. Steve's work presents the optimum nutrition that we can provide for our dogs, and I believe that is information worth knowing. I also recommend Monica Segal's work.
With this book and Steve's other book on the dogs ancestral diet, I now feel that I am feeding her the correct amounts and variety. It is more expensive, but I avoid many trips to the vet, so it is actually less expensive and my friend is much happier and healthy.
I will never feed my pets any commercial food. It is truly junk. Grain free or not it is all not even close to what a dog or a cat needs to be healthy and live a long disease free life.
