loved the book, lots of information with scientific research behind it....only problem was, once I figured out the fat/protein/carb percentages for my dog...I couldn't find a food with those percentages. And the book doesn't tell you how to compensate for kibble diets that lack fat and are too high in carbs.Would recommend and buy again though.
I can't tell you how numerous of times I have used this book as a reference to analyzing the composition of dog foods for my sports dog and friends dogs. It has really provided a lot of help and direction when choosing the right nutrition and calorie breakdown. Author is extremely knowledgeable and the book is easy to comprehend.
A must have for every serious dogperson. Valuable information.Dr J.Jacobs explains it in everyday language. Well done Dr. J.JacobsThe"Dogwhisper"
Covers the basics but aside from some tips on labeling games companies play I found very little practical advice that I could use. I'm already feeding my skijoring dog a quality 35/25 food and am reasonably well-versed in different foods and ingredients and this book didn't teach me much that I didn't already know from reading articles and Googling. Most annoyingly the author mentions supplementing commercial food with meat and fat but provides no advice on when/how to do this. The writing also reminded me of a third-grade science textbook, when the author discusses canine anatomy or the GI system she does so in a very simplistic manner and talks down to the reader. Overall I was disappointed, there was useful information here and there but the book doesn't go into enough depth to serve as a good reference.
