Paleo Dog: Give Your Best Friend a Long Life, Healthy Weight, and Freedom from Illness by Nurturing His Inner Wolf by Jean Hofve DVM, Celeste Yarnall

From the tiniest teacup poodle to the most massive Great Dane, dogs' digestive systems are pure wolf. Walk down the pet food aisle, however, and you'll find that typical commercial kibble is made mainly of starchy ingredients like peas, potatoes, corn, wheat, rice, and oats. So how do you feed a wolf disguised as a pug? Paleo Dog offers a guide for assessing your dog's diet to find the right balance of healthy ingredients, as well as advice on treats, training, and the care needed to give your pet the longest and best quality of life.
