In the whirlwind of information about local, organic, and whole foods, it's easy to forget that our canine companions can also benefit from---and deserve---a more natural and nurturing diet. Preparing your pup's food at home may seem daunting, but it's really not, says Lew Olson in the first comprehensive guide to both raw and natural dog food. Olson discusses canine nutritional needs and explains how home-prepared foods, particularly raw foods, can meet pets' needs better than commercial, processed dog food.
An authority on canine health for over thirty years, Olson presents recipes for simple and balanced diets for pets with numerous conditions, including allergies, heart disease, cancer, and kidney and liver disease. Step-by-step instructions make preparation easy and Olson's recipes are adapted by weight for different breeds, body types, and ages. These whole-food recipes are the key to better coats, skin, teeth, and gums, as well as longer lives and more stable temperaments for any dog.
Raw & Natural Nutrition for Dogs is written for the newcomer to home-feeding as well as the seasoned raw feeder. For the many people who want to prepare their dog's diets at home but feel it might be too complex, Olson provides an easy road map to the essentials of canine wellness.
Lew Olson has written for numerous dog magazines, including The New Zealand Dog Gazette, The Rottweiler Quarterly, Mein Hund Naturich Gesund, and The Total Rottweiler. An AKC judge and the president of two dog clubs, Olson has designed several dog supplement blends. She lives in Magnolia, TX.
