This book covers in a very thorough manner companion animal nutrition. It is composed of 38 chapters and six appendixes, divided into six integrated and topically focused sections that cover basics of nutrition, nutrient requirements, pet foods, feeding management, feeding practices, and nutritionally responsive disorders. The table of contents provides excellent access to topics and at the conclusion of each section key points are summarized and references listed. This book provides a concise examination of the science of companion animal nutrition and practical information about feeding management for dogs and cats. This is a valuable source of information for veterinarians, nutritionists, animal scientists, veterinary and animal science students, and others working with companion animals. The authors have written a text that deals with the subject matter factually and in an easy to grasp manner. The section about feeding practices is rich in information and well documented. The key points provided after each section offer excellent summaries of the section's content and provide a quick reference and guide for the reader. The appendixes offer a wealth of tabulated information that is of interest to the nutritionist as well as the practicing veterinarian. In places, the book contains typographical or format errors that should have been edited. Overall, the book is excellent, easy-to-read, and contains valuable information for anyone interested in nutrition of the dog and cat. The book, however, is not as detailed as Hand's Small Animal Clinical Nutrition, 4th Edition (Mark Morris Institute, 2000), which provides a thorough and detailed treatment of companion animalclinical nutrition intended for veterinarians.

This book attempts to convey an understanding of thebasic nutrition and nutritional requirements of cats and dogs. Thepurpose is to provide pet professionals and hobbyists an understandingof basic nutrition to enable them to provide optimal nutritional carethroughout the life of the cat or dog. These worthy objectives are metby the authors. This book is intended for companion animalveterinarians, veterinary students, animal scientists, nutritionists,breeders, exhibitors, judges, trainers, hobbyists, and any others whocare about the health and well-being of their cat or dog. Numerouscolor tables and some black-and-white figures are featured. The bookhas a nice layout, with six broad sections that are divided intoseveral chapters and concluded by a review of the key points. It is anattractive book. This is a useful book for the student and hobbyistas well as a good reference for the practicing small animalveterinarian. Written in a clear and concise manner, it addresses factsas well as myths in this important area of pet care. I recommend thisbook to students, libraries, and bookstores.
