Feed Your Best Friend Better by Rick Woodford is a must have for any dog owner. I have two dogs who both have very different nutritional needs. I have been watching my one dog slowly gain weight while the second dog is slowly losing weight. This cookbook has great nutritional information and I now better understand the nutritional and caloric needs of both of my dogs better. For example, I thought that our newly adopted dog was very active but in reality she is just active for her breed and we need to adjust her meals accordingly. I loved how well organized this cookbook was and how there are a variety or recipes for all of the categories which include treats, cookies, meals, meal toppers, recipes for ailing dogs and even recipes for dogs and their humans to eat together. Additionally, there are gorgeous pictures throughout the book. Thank you NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I was looking at this book and others about cooking for your dog so imaging my surprise when I had the opportunity to get my hands on this book for its 10th anniversary. I like the info it provides, and look forward to doing some of the snacks, toppers, and main dishes. I like that many of the recipes include liver since my dog loves them. The recipes offer variety in ingredients, some needing few ingredients and others needing 8+. Overall, I am looking forward to preparing food for my dog and I'm even more excited to see his reaction to the food.
