Update: Dr. Hofve offered to make the PDF version of the book available to me so that I can view the charts and graphs. I truly appreciate her making this offer and since I will be able to see the charts and graphs. They are also working on a solution to this problem that had not presented itself prior to publishing the Kindle version. The book has very valuable information and I appreciate your taking the time to respond and help. Thank you, Dr. Hofve!
If you do want to understand how to evaluate different foods, there is an in-depth discussion of the plusses and minuses of different food options, and an in-depth breakdown of how to read food labels and what type of criteria to use in selecting a diet based on commercially available foods. If you are really hard-core and want to make your own raw diet for your cats, there are recipes and instructions on how to do that too.
There's also a lot of other practical advice on things like how frequently to feed, how much to feed, even the type of dishes to use.
Like I said, I think this book is great for any cat owner that is at all concerned about doing right by their cat in terms of nutrition. And the book gets right down to the point. No messing around. You can pretty much read this book from cover to cover within a couple of hours.
I read it in one sitting and was impressed. From having a dog, I already knew most kibble/dry food was junk, so we've had him on a high quality brand for years, and he does well. Cats are a bit different though (as they are obligate carnivores, unlike dogs), and while I know this vet wants everyone to feed raw, I appreciated that she included a good list of dry/wet foods that she deemed acceptable.
I started telling my husband how if we don't feed raw, their diet should at least still be mostly wet food. He was stubborn and had convinced himself a kibble diet would be just fine. I made him read the book, and amazingly he decided that I was right! In fact, we've decided we might try a raw diet, as it's going to turn out to cost less than the combo dry/wet stuff we were going to give them. Cheaper, and healthier, win win!
