Ancestors and canine cousins of our dogs didn't eat "krunchy kibble" or "meat 'n gravy in a can." They ate what they found or caught... and it wasn't cooked or "enriched" either! It was high in protein, with balanced fats, and usually included a few fruits, vegetables and grasses. Steve Brown, an expert on canine nutrition, shows how you can bring the benefits of the canine ancestral diet to your dog by feeding him differently as little as just one day a week. And no, you won't need to lead a pack of dogs on a hunting expedition! Just follow Steve's well-researched and easy to follow ABCs to make improvements to whatever your dog currently eats. BONUS! Raw food or home prepared feeders will learn how to balance nutrients more precisely, especially fats, for optimum health. A dog diet to get wild about! • Learn about the latest research on the importance of protein and healthy fats in your dog's diet. • Find out why commercial foods can't include these fragile-but-crucial nutrients, and how you can make sure your dog gets them. • Just one day a week, or more frequently if you choose, follow the simple recipes that balance the nutrition in the commercial food you are feeding—wet or dry!

An integrative and revolutionary way to treat your animals, combining holistic and natural medicine with the best of modern science. Dr. Barbara Royal is a passionate, dedicated, and innovative veterinarian with a unique approach to medicine. Her patients have included countless different species from German shepherds at her private practice, to baby owls in the wild, to zebras in the zoo. Her clients are the humans who live for their pets, much like she does. Her ability to lend a voice to sick or injured animals and carry out the best treatment for them is unmatched. An expert diagnostician with a background in zoo and wildlife medicine, Dr. Royal has learned that adhering to the teachings of Western medicine is often not the best way to fully cure her patients. With the clinical experience to know when to use surgery, medications, and alternative methods, plus an observant and empathetic understanding of the evolutionary needs of her patients, she individually tailors the Royal Treatment to ensure that each pet (and owner!) lives as happily and healthfully as possible. The knowledge she has gained from wild animals gives her valuable insight into the cat in your kitchen and the dog in your living room. Our pets have all evolved from wild species and adapted to domestic life in many ways, but their natural characteristics are genetically fixed. In order for our pets to meet their full health potential, we must be mindful of these natural nutritional, emotional, and physical needs. Applying common sense in this way, along with the support of medicine, nutrition, elements of Eastern medicine, and physical rehabilitation, fosters an animal’s natural inclination toward optimal health and immunity. There is no placebo effect in animal medicine, and Dr. Royal has seen amazing results with her integrative approach, time and time again. A must-have for all pet owners, these pages shimmer with ingenious advice, insight, and scientific originality. But most of all, a veterinarian with heart comes through in every word. Dr. Royal empowers animal lovers to lift their pets into a realm of natural health and happiness that will be palpable from shiny coat to bouncy step. *** Learn everything you need to know about taking care of your pet naturally, including: • Functional nutrition and diet recipes • Commercial pet food: recognizing the good, the bad, and the unhealthy • How diet and protein levels specifically affect your pet’s health and behavior • Judicious use of herbs and medicines • How to detect if your pet is feeling pain and where • Noninvasive, nonsurgical treatments for genetically flawed hips and other arthritic joints • How to know if your pet is happy • How to clean your dog’s, cat’s, or rabbit’s ears—the right way! • Pet supplements explained • Which vaccines to give or not give your pet • Evolutionary insights into your pet’s behavior • Getting your new puppy off to a perfect start • How acupuncture works • Geriatric wellness and end-of-life care . . . and more

See Spot Live Longer combines the most recent nutritional science with easy-to-follow practical advice on how to help dogs live longer. Part One introduces the reader to a few of the many dogs and cats the authors have known whose lives have been transformed by fresh food diets. Part Two compares the radical difference between the natural diet of dogs, which includes a variety of high-protein raw foods, and the modern diet, which usually includes only high-carbohydrate, highly processed dry food. The authors discuss in detail the macronutrient (protein, carbohydrate, fat, water) and micronutrient (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes) content of these diets, as well as the reasons that dogs can thrive on carrion and other high bacteria content foods. Part Three discusses the inevitable toxins and allergens in dry foods, especially those that use low quality grains, and how these substances may be major contributors to the cancer and allergy epidemic in dogs. Part Four shows the reader how easy it is to immediately help dogs live longer. The main emphasis is on how to improve the dog's diet, even using foods that would normally be thrown away. Also discussed are: avoidance of toxins (especially those close to the ground toxins that humans often don't see); the importance of proper exercise; and keeping dogs lean. The appendices provide detailed information about dry dog food recipes and costs, give advice on how to select dry food, discuss the question of missing hybrid vigor (and Steve's Charlee Bear? dogs), and explore possible origins of health problems.
