“In these pages, Kymythy Schultze has provided an excellent nutritiona ltext to help us build a healthier life for our animal friends.” — Stephen R. Blake, D.V.M.

There are an estimated 60 million dogs and 70 million cats living as beloved companions in the USA alone, and feeding pets is a multi-billion-dollar business.

A significant proportion of pet owners are now turning to holistic health care to prevent disease and enhance their pets’ well-being. The foundation of holistic care is optimal nutrition.

Our own doctors extol the virtues of eating fewer processed foods and adding more fresh foods to our diet if we wish to enjoy good health. Certainly, our dogs and cats deserve the same consideration!

In this reader-friendly book, author Kymythy R. Schultze shows you how a species-appropriate diet of raw, natural foods can lead to an enhanced quality of life for your pet.

You’ll learn how to easily prepare a nutritious homemade meal, which can help your pet develop a shiny coat, healthy skin and digestion, clean teeth, bright eyes—and also reduce flea problems and bad breath.

If you love your pet, Natural Nutrition for Dogs and Cats is an invaluable book that you’ll want to keep handy at all times!
