Natural Nutrition for Dogs and Cats



Natural Nutrition for Dogs and Cats by Kymythy R. Schultze C.C.N., A.H.I.
135 pages | Paperback

This should be a must-read book for every pet owner.

If you love your dog, you need to read this book. It will change the way you view the health of your pet. I can tell you this from experience. Feeding commercial dog food since 1950's, I became more and more concerned about exactly what I was forcing my dogs to live on. When I did a little research, I became very critical of commercial dog food companies.

This book changed the way I feed my own dogs and has become the book I recommend to everyone who asks me about what dog food I recommend. This book has changed the way I look at nutrition for my dogs.
