Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Today's concerned pet owners worry about the contents of their companion animals' food; wonder whether they should provide homecooked meals or raw meat instead of commercial pet food; agonize about annual vaccinations, which some believe are the cause of an increased incidence of cancer in dogs and cats; and weigh the risks and benefits of giving certain drugs to their pets. Martin addresses these issues and updates her investigation of the unsavory and unhealthy practices of the pet food industry, which she began in Food Pets Die For (New Sage, 1997). She implicates diet in the increase of certain conditions, including the spread of Mad Cow disease across species. Martin provides a commonsense approach to the vaccination schedule, and her recommendations are based on solid research and are carefully footnoted. She concludes her book with recipes for healthy, homemade pet food, a listing of pet food and pet health-related web sites, and a state-by-state list of agencies concerned with food safety.
