From the back cover:
“Modern canine nutrition demands we trust the science more so than actually understand it because to pull back the curtain just a little reveals the magic show for what it is – a very clever elusion.
From the vet health professional to the avid home raw feeder, Feeding Dogs is a fascinating and at times shocking page-turner. It is a reference manual which provides for us the irrefutable evidence that if good health and longevity are what we desire for our pets, we must urgently reconsider so many of the lessons currently being fed to us by the industry.
With tangible passion for the subject but with an entertaining, highly readable style, Dr. Conor Brady forensically translates the available research on a great variety of topics, detailing for us not only what dogs should eat but what they are currently being fed. Crucially, modern diet strategies are linked to many of the diseases that plague our pets today, including obesity, cancer, pancreatitis and bloat. As the scientific and corporate tricks reveal themselves, the fantasy of a complete diet falls away, replaced with the knowledge that formulating a balanced dog diet by ourselves is not only uncomplicated but utterly essential.”
“In this masterfully researched and written expose, Dr. Conor Brady details the raw truth about canine nutrition; why dog food is so damaging, how modern research is designed to sell product, never to find truth, and the enormous benefits that only a fresh raw and whole food diet can provide. A valuable addition to the serious raw feeder’s library.” ~ Dr. Ian Billinghurst, best-selling author of Give Your Dog a Bone
“This remarkable book is the first of its kind. Researched comprehensively and meticulously detailed, it remains pleasantly readable and credible to the academic and home raw food enthusiast alike. It is a must for everyone with even a passing interest in species-appropriate nutrition for dogs.” ~ Dr. Nick Thompson, Founder of the Raw Feeding Vet Society
