Pat is so knowledgeable. I have two dogs, one of which would literally keep eating until he threw up if I did that.

Pat is so knowledgeable. It doesn't stop there - a healthy dose of extra nutty veganism for humans (not for pets!) mixed with a few stabs at spiritualism, and you end up with a book that isn't even worthy of a footnote except to condense the overall tenor of this ridiculous book to a paragraph that says it all: "The universe was perfectly designed by the wisdom of a greater spirit.

This book provides a complete nutrition program for your dogs and cats which will solve many of their ailments. After reading this book I'm certain that if we had put her on the Pat McKay diet she would have lived a much healthier and comfortable life. I now see the same things happening in my cats. Overweight, constantly hungry, lethargic.

Dog and Cat Nutrition: The Optimum Natural Healthy Diet rawdiet4pets. com A growing number of vets are stating that processed pet food is the main cause of illness and premature death in the modern dog and cat. In December 1995, the British Journal of Small Animal Practice published a paper contending that processed pet food suppresses the immune system and leads to liver, kidney, heart, and other diseases.

  • Great and necessary book if you want your dog to live a long time. Mine always lived much longer because of the diet in this book.

  • The best book for your healthy pet!!! Pat is so knowledgeable...nutrition is THE for a healthy and happy pet!!
    Pat makes it easy for pet owner!!,

  • It would be more helpful to have more detailed information on amounts to feed to make sure the RAW diet is nutritionally complete.

  • I got this book at a thrift store for $2 - and after reading just a few pages, I seriously considered returning it. While some might think that my objections to the content of this book can be explained away by the fact that it was published over two decades ago, I personally am astounded that this book was published at all. While there are a handful of practical, sensible suggestions, they're few and far between. It's especially laughable when you read that dairy is among the most easily digested proteins for animals - which isn't just incorrect, it's complete untrue (the book eventually comes to that conclusion later on as well). I was initially going to give this book just a single star but gave one extra for the few bits of useful information hidden among the rubble.

    Leaving aside the obvious mega-size font and inane, verbatim repetition, it's both condescending and sanctimonious in preaching that all canine and feline pets - of which we are only the guardians, not owners! - MUST be fed raw meat. It's completely preposterous given that this premise relies on what animals would do if they lived in the wild - which is not especially relevant to domesticated pets at this point, unless you rescue an animal that had been living in the wild for a long time before coming to live with you. I'm sorry, but I'd rather cook protein than douse it in hydrogen peroxide before feeding it to my dogs! But before you even get to double digit pages, the reader is chastised as conforming and accepting the misguided perception that there would, could or should be something objectionable to feeding your pets as nature intended: "rodents, birds, reptiles, insects and other animal protein" (pages 2, 7). And the suggestion that you should feed your pet soy products? I think not!

    With no discernible education in science - veterinary or otherwise - we are informed that 90% of ALL animal diseases stem from poor diet (with curiously absent references to back this up, of course). The "author" - and I use this term lightly - even contradicts herself within single paragraphs but insinuates that if you don't feed your pet this particular "diet", you're doomed to expensive visits to the vet and ultimately the untimely death of your pet. While there are a handful of useful suggestions, I would caution anyone from using this as a solitary reference point due to less-than-kosher "gems" like a subsection that warns you about chocolate being poisonous to dogs and cats...but then torpedoes the point by saying that if you've been feeding your pet chocolate regularly for a while, they may be addicted to it. NEWSFLASH: if you fed your pet chocolate regularly it's most likely DEAD.

    There are, by the way, no actual recipes in this book except four desserts - including one for banana pudding made with tofu and maple syrup (I wonder where our pets would've found those in the wild!). However, what I find much more aggravating is the inconsistency with various suggestions - such as, fish is great protein...but can we even find healthy fish...but you can feed your pets fish if you have a good source (and presumably access to government grade science labs to verify that the fish is completely unaffected by environmental pollutants etc). You come away with the impression that Ms McKay majored in vague, unsubstantiated claims that she felt the need to offset with even more obtuse commentary.

    And, quite frankly, I don't know who in their right mind would think or agree with the demand (yes, the book doesn't make suggestions as much as it tells you what you MUST do!) that you give your pets such an abundance of food at mealtime that they can gorge themselves until they no longer want any food. Indeed this should be done regardless of the pet's age and/or weight - you know, because nothing makes more sense than overfeeding an overweight pet! According to the book, you'll know you've done it right when they walk away with some food still left over:

    "The decision about quantity is not up to you. This is one decision your animals must make on their own."

    (Wait - how can they be MY animals if I'm not an owner but only a guardian?)

    This idea is absolutely ridiculous. I have two dogs, one of which would literally keep eating until he threw up if I did that.

    It doesn't stop there - a healthy dose of extra nutty veganism for humans (not for pets!) mixed with a few stabs at spiritualism, and you end up with a book that isn't even worthy of a footnote except to condense the overall tenor of this ridiculous book to a paragraph that says it all:

    "The universe was perfectly designed by the wisdom of a greater spirit. We should not tinker with perfection."

    GAG ME WITH A SPOON!

  • I first started following the recommendations in this book 20 years ago. I had just adopted a 3 month old collie/shepherd mix puppy from the pound and was shocked to find that she wasn't interested in dog food at all. Every day it was a struggle to get her to eat even the smallest amounts. To make matters worse, she also turned out to be severely allergic to fleas and was completely bald from the ruff down from biting herself constantly. None of the usual flea fighters did any good. When she was about a year old, I discovered this book and decided to give it a try just as I'd tried everything else.

    Immediately I noticed that she loved the food! She ate with vigor and yet did not get fat, she just had more energy. Better still, the flea problem DISSAPPEARED within a few weeks and never came back. Obviously, I kept her on the raw diet (with some modifications for convenience & nutrition) for the rest of her life. She lived to be 17 years old - very unusual for her breeds - and stayed young-looking and extremely healthy her entire life. In fact, she never had a single health problem and only needed a vet once in all those years.

    Her body finally gave out on her 3 years ago and we immediately when back to the shelter to adopt another dog. We put this one on a raw diet right away and she loves it so much it makes us laugh to see the way she scrambles across the wood floor to reach her food that much faster.

    I highly recommend some form of raw diet to everyone I know!

  • This book is very informative and insightful. Very easy read. It was recommended to me at my local natural pet food store "My Pet Naturally" here in Los Angeles and I quickly read through it. I shuddered when I recognized all of the symptoms of the yeast infections that our family dog suffered through for years until she was finally put down last year. We went through all sorts of expensive prescription dog foods, corizone shots, steroids, antibiotics, the works! After hundreds of dollars in vet bills nothing ever made that animal more comfortable and she died just miserable. After reading this book I'm certain that if we had put her on the Pat McKay diet she would have lived a much healthier and comfortable life. I now see the same things happening in my cats. Overweight, constantly hungry, lethargic. I'm starting them on this diet immediately.
