This is the most easily read reference about raw diets out there. Anyone new to raw diets or looking into them should pick up a copy of this book. Though I do not agree with some of the information, it definitely is a worthwhile reference. As someone mentioned there are facts in the beginning about cats in a study, this refers to the Pottenger cat study. The study was by no means any kind of formal study and the cats were being used in research and subjected to other stresses, this study is not the best study in my opinion for proving that a raw diet is best. I feel that while it is worthwhile looking at, new studies need to be done. Also I don't think that she really takes into perspective that every dog is an individual. She says that grains and dairy should not be used whatsoever, but many dogs do well and even thrive on diets including these food groups. It all depends on the dog. Overall this book is a great introduction to raw and a simple, no-nonsense book for beginners.

Miracles do not happen often, but surely this time one occurred after having read Kymythy Schultze's book. We have a 2 year old Jack Russell, Max, who, despite his lively and affectionate nature, was very difficult as to what he accepted for food. We tried tens of different brands of (dry) dog food, but each time after a few days he refused to continue to eat the stuff. His coat became dull, more and more often he had all kinds of skin affections, small injuries did not heal normally and so on. We bought a range of books on how to best care for your dog, but to no avail. Until I found this book with Amazon and started to feed Max The Ultimate Diet from the day we both read it. The change has been fast and dramatic. His coat has become thick and glossy, not the slightest trace anymore of exzema, injuries (resulting from his buldozer approach when out in the surrounding countryside) heal within a few days and he has become more gay and playful than ever! I think we are even more happy than Max himself since this Good Book came to us!

I was new to RAW feeding prior to buying this book. I had done some research and reading on the Internet and already understood the concept of RAW feeding - the core food groups and the recommended proportions of each. However, I needed a book that would help me make the transition from just reading to actually preparing the meals for my pets. This book did not do it for me. It is more of a very basic "theory" book than a "practical" one. I bought the book online - if I had had a chance to flip through it first, I would have gone with another book.
This book pretty much just explains what the food groups are, how they contribute to the health of your pets and the respective pros and cons. But, like I said, you can get this information for FREE on the Internet! Schultze only gives ONE easy recipe for BOTH dogs and cats, with varying amounts of ingredients depending on the weight of your pet. After joining a few RAW feeding discussion lists, I was told that most of the things I read in the book are NOT recommended by fellow raw feeders (eg: feeding GROUND meat, veggies, kelp & alfalfa supplements and BOTH cod-liver oil and fish oil, etc.) Even I knew going in that you can't use the same recipe for both dogs and cats and yet Schultze only provides one recipe. Cats, I am told, especially don't need veggies, kelp or alfalfa and they don't need cod liver oil.
This book would have been more useful had I not done any of my own research first so overall I found the content to be quite disappointing. Somewhat informative but NOT very practical.

I was feeding BARF for about 3 years before I FINALLY got Kymythy's book.
By that time I was already so familiar with her ideas as those who introduced me to the change also use her plans as their guide.
I was so happy and thankful to finally get my own copy.
Now, her book is part of my Kitten info pack going out with each of my kittens to their new owners.
I do not follow her diet ''per letter'', and make changes as I learn and as my intuition guide me.... This all comes with researching and becoming informed. As we learn more what benefits our animals, we make changes.
None the less, an excellent starting point for those new to RAW/BARF feeding.
My only caution is with those she refers at the back of her book.
At least one of those listed is performing nothing less than quackery in his ''Holistic'' animal practice. It was hard to tell a kitten buyer to use caution with one of those she refers..... takes away some of the enthusiasm I have for her.

My Golden Retriever has suffered from allergies most of her life.She has been on the diet in this book for six months. After a detox period(explained in this book) which lasted 6-8 weeks,her overall health has improved tremendously.My dog is off all of her previous medication(antibiotics and prednisone), and her skin is clear,her coat is soft and thick, and her attitude is great. I would definetly recommend this book.I would also recommend seeking help from a homeopathic vet when switching to the diet.
