The Natural Pet Food Cookbook: Healthful Recipes for Dogs and Catsby Wendy Nan Rees
Synopses & Reviews
The unprecedented pet food recall that began in March 2007 has pet owners very concerned. Many have become mistrustful of commercial food manufacturers and instead are turning to home-cooked meals as a way to ensure that their pets remain safe. Although most people find that commercial pet foods will have to do the majority of the time, we recognize that processed foods are no better for our animal companions than they are for us, and that eating natural, wholesome foods is far preferable. This cookbook will provide a variety of healthful meal recipes for dogs and cats, the two most commonly kept pets in the United States. Recipes will not include processed foods, but instead rely on natural ingredients like whole grains, fresh vegetables and fruits, and humanely raised meats. The book will contain 50 recipes, along with sidebars providing supplemental information about nutrition, cooking techniques, and holistic pet care.
