A Beginner's Guide to Dog Nutrition with Heathy Cookbook Diets (Paperback)
The purpose of this book is to educate interested breeders, especially beginners, on the nutritional needs of dogs, including feed and feeding management from puppy to mature size, with the goal of ensuring healthy, attractive dogs on a consistent basis throughout their lives. This book simplifies how and what to feed your dog while taking into account the nutritional needs of the dog and what may influence it. The first critical component that influences a dog's nutrition is genetics, gender, dietary energy concentration, environmental temperature, health status, feeding strategy and degree of competition for feed, variability of nutrient content and availability of ingredients, presence of molds, toxins, or anti-nutritional factors in the diet. Finally, it focuses on the nutritional needs of dogs ranging from puppies to adult ones.
