Health and Nutrition for Dogs and Cats

A Guide For Pet Parents

By David G. Wellock, 1942-

While the internet provides pet parents with a great deal of information, finding and understanding that information can be like wading through a bog at midnight without a flashlight. In spite of the internet, pet parents remain desperate for valid resources. Health and Nutrition for Dogs and Cats is timely, informative, and delivers sensible information on topics of importance to all pet owners. From reading pet food labels to storing food, from understanding appropriate calorie intake to food allergies, David Wellock helps readers better understand the dietary needs of their dogs and cats.

In recent years, Americans have come to pay more attention to the foods they eat. This trend toward a healthier lifestyle quickly found its way into the world of pet foods, allowing better diets to find success in the marketplace. However, the change has been somewhat perplexing for pet parents as they struggle to sort out the various, and sometimes misleading, messages surrounding the new foods available to their pets. Here, a seasoned expert in the care and feeding of dogs and cats, provides fact-filled, no nonsense, understandable information on the topics pet parents need to know in order to purchase and prepare food and develop an appropriate diet for their furry charges.
