You can help your dog feel better and stay healthy by making sure that he or she receives the proper nutrition.
Nutrition plays a vital role in your dog’s health. Dogs that receive good quality nutrition are bright and alert with a normal body weight and a shiny, healthy hair coat. This short book covers the essentials of healthy nutrition for all ages of dogs from newborn puppies to adults.
There is so much confusion and misinformation on the internet and elsewhere about dog nutrition these days. As a practicing veterinarian since 2001, I have a wealth of information to share about dog nutrition and health care. This short book discusses all aspects of the proper nutrition for your dog including nutrition claims on dog food labels, information about dog foods claiming to be natural, organic, or holistic, and the six basic nutrient categories. I have also included detailed information on feeding puppies from birth to weaning, feeding puppies from postweaning to adulthood, feeding young adult dogs, and feeding dogs middle-aged and older. Foods to avoid feeding your dog are also discussed.
This book is excerpted from Chapter 1 of my book titled Dog Health Care: 7 Simple Ways To Keep Your Dog Healthy. Because so many people have told me how much they appreciated the information presented in this chapter, I decided to make it available as a stand-alone short book.
I have also included two bonus chapters excerpted from my book Dog Health Care: 7 Simple Ways To Keep Your Dog Healthy that you should find useful: “Tips And Tricks For Giving Medications To Your Dog” and “Important Information To Take To Your Dog's Veterinarian Visit.”
If you enjoy this short book and find it helpful, I hope that you will go on to purchase and read my full book Dog Health Care: 7 Simple Ways To Keep Your Dog Healthy (available in both e-book and paperback on Amazon).
