Canine Nutritional Myth Book
The Canine Nutritional Myth Book is a full-color collection of essays addressing some common myths held regarding dog food. Many of these myths have only been around for the last 30 years since the revolution of dog food and designer dog foods. Dog owners and breeders have searched and searched for answers to some of the most important questions regarding dog nutrition, only to be met with these myths. In order to address all the myths of dog nutrition, it would take a course. But this introduction to some of the most common myths helps dog owners begin their journey toward more health and wellness for their best friends. The essays cover vitamin interaction and the need for less supplementation when the quality of the food nutrients are addressed first, why protein types seem to matter, or not, what causes obesity and how raw food diets work for dogs.
Written by veterinarians who have over 40 years of experience and education in canine health and nutrition, this booklet examines some of the issues that even veterinarians have been taught but seem suspect based upon other elements of science. Here the doctors address the works of the digestive system on the overall health of the dog. Without the correct building blocks no dog can be fully healthy; even though it may appear to be a dog it cannot reach its true potential without all the right ingredients.
Hippocrates is quoted as saying, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine will be thy food.” In a dog’s world, food and love can be all they need.
This booklet makes a great addition to any waiting room literature and often acts as a conversation starter for patients. It is a great way to help your patients begin thinking about true health and nutrition in their dogs. It may also open up the conversation for other health issues that can begin as nutritional deficits, and that can be resolved with better nutrition.
This booklet can be purchased in bulk quantities as a means of helping clients gain and retain the information needed to continue to feel better. It makes a great addition to a ‘new puppy’ packet when breeders send the puppy to its new home, and it makes a nice hand out for new patients when they come for the first time.
