Paleo Dog: Give Your Best Friend a Long Life, (Jean Hofve)

For health-conscious pet owners, a natural, holistic guide to getting every canine back to his best, most primal state

From the tiniest teacup poodle to the most massive Great Dane, dogs' digestive systems are pure wolf. Fido's ancestors enjoyed a diet that was 45–50 percent protein, 40–50 percent fat, and less than 10 percent carbohydrates. Walk down the pet food aisle, however, and you'll find that typical commercial kibble is made mainly of starchy ingredients like peas, potatoes, corn, wheat, rice, and oats—nothing a prehistoric pup would dream of eating. This "healthy" mix is proving anything but: About 85 percent of dogs eat commercial dog food, and at least half of them are overweight or obese, with cancer killing 42 percent of all dogs and half of dogs over the age of 10.

So how do you feed a wolf disguised as a pug? Paleo Dog guides readers through an assessment of their dogs' diet and helps them find the right balance of healthy ingredients. In addition to recipes and nutrition info, the book offers advice on what treats are safe, training tips, minimizing veterinary care, the benefits of exercise and massage, and how to ensure dogs are receiving the love and attention they need. Paleo Dog is the ultimate manual for any pet owner who wants to give her pet the longest and best quality of life.

I just stumbled on the above book.  It was published in June 2014.  Anyway... I know someone that eats "Paleo."  And she has a dog and a cat.  This MAY just be the book that will change her thoughts about feeding kibble... and see the connection.   fingerscrossed

"In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semihuman. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog." Edward Hoagland
"Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog."
