What People are Saying About This

Tamira Ci Thayne

David Wellock's Health and Nutrition for Dogs and Cats gave me many ideas which, in my work to free dogs from a chained and miserable existence, I can put to great use with our rescued canines. These dogs come from nothing, and I regularly see dogs who appear unkempt and unhealthy upon coming into rescue blossom into vibrant, shiny beings with a little TLC and high quality food. I believe David's advice is sound and he's funny too—an unbeatable combination.

Edward K. Loyst

A great read! David Wellock has covered all the bases with a pleasing writing style sprinkled with wit and humor. I certainly recommend this book to franchise owners and pet-parents.

Andrew Redman

Health and Nutrition for Dogs and Cats. Bloody brilliant! This book is so well told it felt as if David Wellock were having a face to face conversation with me. This book will be a timeless reference for those seeking guidance about many aspects of their pets lives and health. It should almost be pre-requisite reading for people planning to add a dog or cat to their family.

Gary Pusillo

More and more dog and cat owners realize their responsibility for making diet decisions that are individualized and sensitive to the environmental conditions that occupy a majority of the daily life of a treasured four legged family member. After reading this book, the pet parent will become an advanced advocate for honest foods with repeatable desirable outcomes. This book will enable a pet parent to more confidently decipher pet food marketing materials, and food labels, by using a gained appreciation for scientific facts, experience, and wisdom. I am confident this book will inspire great choices for all pet parents.
