Dr. Ian Billinghurst's puppy book! Author recommends reading Give Your Dog a Bone, #DN138, first. Divided into three parts:Part 1: introduces the BARF (Bones And Raw Food) diet for feeding dogs, which is based on the dietary needs of dogs as shaped by several hundred thousand years of evolution.Part 2: about feeding for breeding. Practical common sense approach to producing an optimum number of healthy pups with a minimum of fuss.Part 3: growing pups into healthy adults that do not develop Hip or Elbow dysplasia, or any of the other skeletal diseases which are so common in modern dogs. Central to this part is the BARF program of diet and exercise, which is inspired by the observation that animals are much healthier when fed their biologically appropriate diet based on Bones And Raw Foods.
