This book gives all the info I was looking for to improve my dog's health. Recipes are great with portion size included and calories my dog should be eating.
I'm excited to try every recipe. The layout of this book is great and I love the pictures!! I'm thinking about getting this book as a birthday gift for all of the doggies (and doggie owners!!) in my life!!
If you truly love your pet and want them around for a long time but most important "healthy", this is the book to read. I thought that the Supplement Stew ingredients would be expensive; however, I found a "great" store on line (Nuts.com) that sell at reasonable prices and the products are "gluten-free" and "organic". Our Siberian Husky is going to be around for a long time and we are going to enjoy her for every minute. Thank you Rick Woodford!
