We are what we eat. And the same goes for our dogs...Over the past 20 years, our dogs' lives have come to mimic our own. They are overfed, under-exercised and stressed, and because of this they are increasingly taking on our shape and disease pattern. More than half the dogs in this country are now either overweight or clinically obese. In this book, Kate Bendix presents a brilliantly compelling case for better dog nutrition. Based on the latest science, it includes enough pet food knowledge to enable you not only to get your dog's weight down but to transform her health in general. It will sort out many of the common, niggling health issues (itchy skin, dog breath, dodgy joints) and even prolong her life. The catch? There isn't one. The Dog Diet is easy, it won't cost you a fortune or eat into your precious downtime; and, wait for it...your dog will actually enjoy it.
