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!
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!
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.
A great book!
We are looking forward to reading the spanish edition!
