For health-conscious pet owners, a natural, holistic guide to getting every canine back to his best, most primal state From the tiniest teacup poodle to the most massive Great Dane, dogs' digestive systems are pure wolf. Fido's ancestors enjoyed a diet that was 45–50 percent protein, 40–50 percent fat, and less than 10 percent carbohydrates. 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—nothing a prehistoric pup would dream of eating. This "healthy" mix is proving anything but: About 85 percent of dogs eat commercial dog food, and at least half of them are overweight or obese, with cancer killing 42 percent of all dogs and half of dogs over the age of 10. So how do you feed a wolf disguised as a pug? Paleo Dog guides readers through an assessment of their dogs' diet and helps them find the right balance of healthy ingredients. In addition to recipes and nutrition info, the book offers advice on what treats are safe, training tips, minimizing veterinary care, the benefits of exercise and massage, and how to ensure dogs are receiving the love and attention they need. Paleo Dog is the ultimate manual for any pet owner who wants to give her pet the longest and best quality of life.

The "Natural Dog Food" method provides your dog with healthy, balanced meals based on the diet followed by wolves and wild dogs. The domestic dog still has the same food requirements as his wild ancestors: unlike external appearance, his digestive system has not changed over thousands of years of domestication. As a result, meat is still the most important ingredient in a dog’s meal. This is enhanced by pureed vegetables, fruit, herbs, and other supplementary foods. The "Natural Dog Food" method is easy to implement and enables you to establish a healthy and beneficial diet for your dog with individual meal plans. Even in cases of illness, your dog will be well looked after with "Natural Dog Food", as health problems can be counteracted quickly and simply. "Natural Dog Food" gives interested dog owners the opportunity to provide their dogs with healthy, natural, and species-appropriate food. This reference book supplies the know-how required to prepare a healthy meal for your pet. All topics linked to the Natural Dog Food diet are comprehensively covered, from arthrosis to time management.

The only fully comprehensive guide to "all things feline," from the host of Cat Chat on Martha Stewart Living Radio. Finally, a definitive book that delivers many unknown facts about every aspect of caring for and sharing your life with a cat, ranging from proper nutrition and strange behavior to medical care and multi-cat households, to grooming and geriatrics. The Cat Bible explains the mysteries of feline behavior to owners who are devoted to their cats without being able to fully understand them. It offers straightforward solutions to the problems that cause people to give up their cats, many of which are preventable, including litter box avoidance, furniture scratching, and physical ailments. There are more than 90 million American households that count cats as family members, but they are a vastly underserved population, devoted to their kitties, yet bereft of all the public attention, programming, and print devoted to dogs. Now, bestselling author and investigative journalist Tracie Hotchner offers them The Cat Bible, with straightforward, fact-filled solutions to health and behavior problems, based on years of research into the real reasons behind these issues. In the same warm, straightforward style that attracts devoted listeners to her radio shows, Tracie tackles controversial topics such as the truth about commercial dry pet foods and their dangers, bringing readers the latest facts on every topic that affects a feline?s well-being.
