"It is my opinion that this is a must for the veterinary practice'sreference library." (National Association of Veterinary Techniciansin America , 2011) "The second edition provides a more clinical approach to feedingdogs and cats than does the original textbook and could serve as astarting reference for nutritional management of disease."(Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association,December 2010)"From feeding puppies and kittens or pregnant animalsto handling the nutritional needs of performance dogs, this newedition has been completely rewritten for the latest nutritionalrecommendations and is a 'must' for not only vet libraries, butgeneral collections and pet owner reference." (Midwest BookReview, July 2010) "Presents important concepts in the nutrition of healthy petsand special considerations for pets with various medical conditionsand an extensive listing of recipes for home preparation. This is auseful guide for pet owners and a valuable reference for smallanimal veterinarians serving clients who wish to feed ahome-prepared diet to their pets. Information in this secondedition is more solidly supported by current research and ispresented in a balanced and unbiased manner." (Doody'sPublisher's Club, June 2010)
