Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Many pet owners wish that they could transition to making their own dog food recipes, but worry that the experiment would become a rapidly unfolding disaster. To banish such fears, Feed Your Best Friend Better by "Dog Food Dude" Rick Woodford first convinces us that homemade food is vastly superior to commercial concoctions and can extend and enhance the life of our beloved pets. Then he completes the deal with a pleasing array of doggie meals, cookies, and other treats. The recipes, which carry entertaining names like "Mutt Loaf" and "Puppy Pesto," are accompanied by notes about nutritional value and best portion sizes. Healthy meals for happy pets.
