A balanced diet is essential for the optimal health of dogs. As more families opt for home-prepared food for their fur families, finding balanced recipes becomes an almost impossible task. Lauten comments that “malnutrition from unbalanced diets is a real threat to our pet families.”
A healthy dog requires a fully balanced diet and research has shown that fully 80% of published recipes are unbalanced. It is impossible for a consumer to determine which recipes are balanced and safe to feed for the life of the animal. Dr. Lauten and Mr. Lascola have solved that problem.
The “Back to Basics Volume 1, Whole Foods for Healthy Dogs” cookbook can be trusted to contain only nutritionally balanced recipes that meet federal guidelines established by AAFCO and NRC.
Grain-free recipes are included, along with the specific amounts to use of hypoallergenic vitamins and minerals to balance the meals. No artificial colors or preservatives will be found. To finish off a meal for your 4-legged friend, California K9 Kitchen has added some great treat recipes. If you can follow a recipe, you can make very nutritious meals for your dog(s).
Fresh whole foods in balanced recipes can improve a dog’s health and vitality. Maintaining proper body weight can increase the expected life span of your 4-legged friend, and delay the onset of typical signs of aging. Home-cooking provides less calorie dense meals than dry kibbled food, increasing the ability to maintain proper body weight.
