Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Taylor-Laino recommends a holistic approach for feeding our canine and feline companions, saying that switching our pets’ diets to organic, sustainable foods will improve their health and increase energy levels. As a holistic health coach for humans and the owner of a certified organic farm, the author is well qualified to discuss these benefits and to incorporate local farmers’ bounties into the diets of our companion animals. Approximately half the book is devoted to the nutritional needs of dogs and cats, with attention given to the building blocks for creating homemade meals—organ and other meats, fats, bone and calcium, eggs, and more. Various add-ins are explored that will boost nutritive levels. Foods to avoid are mentioned with the corresponding rationale for doing so. Recipes, coded raw vs. cooked and grain vs. grainless, are divided into two broad categories: mélange meals, which are more involved, and pure and simple fare. Most meals are appropriate for both cats and dogs (and even humans), but some are only suitable for one species. Verdict This title presents a compelling case for switching to a homemade diet for pets and provides multiple approaches to the task." - Library Journal
