The Bookie

As you (probably) know, canine rescue is a passion of mine.  In learning to care for the dogs we’ve fostered over the past 8+ years, I often encountered dietary and nutritional challenges.  Finding solutions to those challenges opened the door to a LOT of research into dog food and the differences between food for humans and food for canines.  I even started making my own dog food!
This is today’s batch of doggo stew coming together: Chicken, sweet potato, spinach, oat meal, and assorted nutrition additives. All proportioned according to the recipe plan set out in my latest book: Questions and Answers About Canine Cuisine available at:
Q&A Canine Cuisine
Written  with Dr. Sandra Manes DVM

But it’s much more than a cookbook. 

This is a concise compendium of nutritional information to help you keep your fur baby healthy.  Don’t want to do the cooking?  That’s fine, it covers what you need to know to find a commercial diet that is safe and healthy.  Want to know about the new fad diets?  Dr Sandra Manes DVM and I cover those too.  All in a handy 7×10 paperback with full color photography. 

This book covers all aspects of canine nutrition and discusses everything from choosing a good commercial kibble to cooking your own dog food (including recipes). We also cover raw diet, grain free, all-meat, boutique meals, and we have a hard look at proper nutrition for dogs dealing with diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer.  Tons of useful information presented for the average person in a lighthearted writing style.  This is one of those books you’ll refer back to often because it offers so much great expert information.

 ALL proceeds from this book support Piney Mountain Foster Care, a GuideStar gold seal rated 501(c)(3) rescue. EIN: 84-3593563.  Do your dog a favor, and support PMFC’s life-saving efforts: buy this book!
