Format: Paperback
I must have read a different book, judging by three of the reviews below. Comments such as "all he tells you is to feed big pieces of bone" - nowhere does Tom Lonsdale say that. What he does say is to feed large pieces of meat and bone, and whole carcasses (i.e. whole dead animals) wherever possible.

Comments that there is "nothing new" in the book - well, feeding as near to nature as possible isn't new, it's several thousand years old, so no, it's not new. Tom Lonsdale is the only honest author to set it out in simple terms, because that is what it is - simple! Regarding the quality of meat recommended - isn't it clear then, when he states "source food from human food suppliers"?

Far from being "a waste of money", Work Wonders is a tremendous aid to new raw feeders, as well as for those of us who have been feeding this way for several years. The book gently leads the reader through getting started, quality, quantity and frequency, through to risk management, a brilliant dentistry section and finally to the larger implications of feeding naturally - the effects on human health, the environment and the economy.

This book, along with Dr Lonsdale's seminal work Raw Meaty Bones, should be read by every dog owner. I just wish it had been around when I started feeding raw as it would have saved me making many mistakes and being misled by other "experts". It would also have SAVED me a fair bit of money!

Dr. Tom Lonsdale's newest book Work Wonders is a brilliant and easy to follow manual for any dog, cat or ferret owner on the why,how and when to feed raw meaty bones to their pets and the tremendous health benefits they will enjoy. The chapter on Dentistry Matters is excellent and overall this book is highly informative and makes it very clear that prevention will always be better than cure. Dr. Johan Joubert BVSc MRCVS

I attended Dr. Lonsdales excellent and easy to follow speakings about raw feeding in Germany and have been waiting for his new book. Feeding dogs a healthy diet can be that simple! People getting their dogs started on natural food are often concerned about nutritional values, correct ingredient amounts or important food supplements they have heard of.

Forget all those difficult ideas. You don`t feed yourself and the kids by nutritional tables, and your dog won`t need that either!

Work Wonders is easy to read, simple to understand and to follow. Additionally, dog owners get advice how to find reliable and affordable food sources and how to store it efficiently. Links to related internet discussion groups are provided, and the newbies to raw feeding will appreciate this support.

Popular rumors are discussed, such as blood-lust in raw fed dogs, and I loved it (I am owned by Rottweilers).

The book is completed by brief and understandable information on certain parasitic and systemic diseases and their food relation. Work Wonders is a great book and written with a good sense of humor. Lots of people waiting here for the german edition!

I haven't read this book, but I read the previous one, and I know it *works*. My Labrador has excellent health, beautiful teeth, and a well developed jaw and face.

This note is just to warn people about introducing raw, meaty bones in a dog's diet: the dog may need to learn how to eat the new food. If you're dog is used to kibble or mashed up stuff, then do not give it small bones like those of chicken or pork ribs. Try large bones first. And when you decide to go with small bones, *hold them* in your hand to make sure that the dog chews and crashes them before swallowing them.

A dog as large as a Setter can swallow a whole chicken wing without chewing, and that's something likely to get both pet and owner into trouble.

Also, go slowly. Exposing a dog that's not used to it to bone marrow will probably cause it diarrhea and other uncomfortable symptoms.

short, concise, and to the point! For the non-scientific among us, this short work goes right to the subject of feeding, how to feed, and tells you to EXPECT better breath, coat, longevity, and overall health. He dispells the rumors and superstitions, and brings us back to a time, before prepared dog food, when dogs regularly lived from 15-20 years, in good health.

A great book!

Thank you Dr. Lonsdale for writing this much needed book. It is the perfect follow up to Raw Meaty Bones Promote Health. It demonstrates just how easy it is to feed your dog the way nature intended. I would urge anyone who owns a dog, cat or ferret to buy and read both of Dr. Lonsdale's books, Raw Meaty Bones Promote Health and now Work Wonders.

Even for those who english language is not our native language, we have enjoyed Work Wonders a lot. WW is a very pleasant and understable reading. We had been feeding junk food for 10 years and now we have been feeding RMB's for 5 years now and WW makes me think that we are in the right way and we are sure of this, the health of our dogs is proof of that. The book includes a Risk Management chapter that I consider a great tool!

We are looking forward to reading the spanish edition!
