A good intro, May 22, 2010
Reviewer: Pawsitively Healthy
I like a lot of the information that is provided in this book but I am not particularly happy about the actual recipes provided. I find they are very grain heavy which is less of a concern in dogs however in cats I find it very unnecessary. Definitely a good intro book with plenty of useful information I just don't want it to be the only nutrition book on a pet owners shelf.
 
3rd edition better than 2nd, July 7, 2007
Reviewer: Tami Hawes
I'd reviewed the 2nd edition version when I was looking into a more natural diet for my puppies on the advice of my holistic vet. In fact I was using the diet until my youngest started gaining weight and they were worried that the grains were causing the weight gain. I switched to raw meat and pureed veggies instead. Turns out that she was low thyroid.

The diets are still heavy on grains. Great for the majority of dogs I'm sure. The upside is that there are nutritional analysis of all the diets included so you know why you're including each of the components. There are also special diets included for allergies, weight loss and gain.

I also like the information on various health issues and vaccinosis that is included.
 
A must-have!, April 30, 2007
Reviewer: Ann Dupuis / Your Dream Dog
Dr. Pitcairn’s Guide to Natural Health is a classic, the definitive guide to natural lifestyles for dogs and cats – including home prepared diets. The recipes in this book, along with Dr. Pitcairn’s “Healthy Powder” mixture to supplement the diet, form the basis of my own dogs’ home-prepared food.

Also included: a guide for dealing with pet emergencies and a Quick Reference for preventing, diagnosing, and treating health problems with special attention to holistic, herbal, and nutritional approaches. Newly updated.
