Only Book On Formulating A Canine DIet by Erich (Des Moines Io US)
I was looking for books based on National Research Council standards for canine diets. Two other books, by Dr Becker and Scott Brown, are both good books with sound information. However, this book appears to be the best one for teaching people create canine meal plans. I feed my dogs mostly raw beef hearts, and turkey hearts. Using this book, I am able to formulate a sound diet based on those two main foods. It helps the reader convert data from the USDA nutrition database to the NRC standards. Have not found a similar book for cats, but it appears creating a feline diet would use the same process. Next step in learning about canine nutrition is to get the actual NRC book, which is about $250.Sep 4, 2011
