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.

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.
Smith has written 15 books related to dogs, including one on nutrition. The unfortunately named (by the publisher, not the author) Pudgy Pooch, Picky Pooch, the book predictably did not find its market, but received much critical acclaim. Perhaps it too will return as an e-book someday soon, as the author remains highly interested in how nutrition can impact the health and well-being of our dogs.
Which do you think your dog would prefer: dry kibble, mushy canned food, or a nice, nutritionally sound helping of Tuna Togetherness? Not surprisingly, most dogs would be happier -- and healthier -- with the latter, considering the dangerous preservatives, questionable ingredients, and mysterious flavoring agents often used in commercial dog food.
That's why Rudy Edalati cooked up Barker's Grub, a cookbook filled with wholesome, easy-to-prepare meals for your mutt or your pedigreed pooch -- and you'll find all the necessary ingredients in your fridge or at the local supermarket. She includes not only fun everyday meals, but healing meals for specific health problems, as well as special diets for different life stages, such as:
* Lo Mein Barking Style: the doggie alternative for Chinese takeout
* Beef Puppy Food: just the right mix for a growing dog
* Davie's Juicy Jiggly-Wiggly Anemia Diet: a blood-boosting dish of liver, rice, and spinach
Barker's Grub is informative (there's lots of canine nutritional information to chew on), inspiring, and just plain fun. The recipes are simple and quick -- after all, it's not just about health and longevity, it's about making the most of the time you and your dog spend together.
