This guide will walk you through exactly what kind of diet your dog needs which is the best for him / her.
You will learn some amazing facts about your dog that you were not aware of. Here is a quick fact:
Dogs can get sick easily just because of their diets. Most dogs die much earlier than their potential to live because of poor diets and unnecessary medication. Living a lifestyle supplemented by preservatives, fillers, animal byproducts, additives and chemicals is NOT the life you want for your dog.
What you want is a 100% natural diet, but one that is done the right way. This book will go over how to safely consume a natural raw meat diet and improve your dog's overall digestive and immune systems.
Here are just a handful of topics the guide covers:The benefits of a good dog dietThe effects of a poor dog dietEssential nutrients and vitamins required by your dogDo dogs need carbohydrates?The effects of raw food on dogsSwitching from commercially prepared food to raw food dietRaw vs. cooked Dog FoodOvercoming your fears and anxietiesBiggest myths on Raw Dog FoodCustomizing your dog's raw food dietBest raw dog food ingredientsStoring raw food for dogsBest resources of raw dog foodDiet guide for dogsWhere to feed them, when to feed them, how often to feed them and how much?Mixing raw dog food with KibbleFeeding fruit and vegetables to your dogFeeding your dog raw fishShould you give table scraps to your dog?Special diets for special dogsCommercial Dog FoodMystery ingredients, additives and preservativesProblems with commercial dog foodSupplementing your dog's raw food dietMyths about supplementsCan supplements harm or help your dog?Poisonous plants for your dogRaw Dog Food recipe typesHoliday dog food safetyA survey of different veterinary views of raw dog food diet (MUST)You will also get a bonus section on Raw Dog Food Recipes!
A dog's overall being is predicated first and foremost on their diet. This is no different from your own personal needs. Think about it, your health and well-being is mainly determined by what you eat or consume.
Like you, dog's can get sick easily if their diet leads to a weak immune system, and this affects their lifespan. What you probably don't know is that sickness and early death can be totally prevented from the very beginning by correcting your dog's diet to what it is meant to be.
When you feed your dog the right food, you can sit back and relax because your Best Friend will stay happy, healthy and live much longer.
