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.
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.
