An informative and practical guide to cooking healthy, nutritious meals for dogs

To dog owners, their pets are regarded as cherished members of the family, and they care about their health and well-being as they would that of a human. And, as with humans, animal illness is often traced to a poor diet, commonly caused by processed food made with preservatives.

With 50 easy-to-follow recipes for nutritious and quick-to-prepare meals adjustable for dogs of different weights, sizes, breeds, and activity levels, this book takes the mystery out of what you should feed your dog with simple recipes that follow healthy guidelines.

This book includes easy guides for portion sizes for all breeds, perfect for multi-dog households; information on vitamin supplements that will keep dogs healthy and happy; and a varied selection of recipes to batch-cook and freeze - ideal for those with busy lives.

Feed Me is illustrated throughout by Kevin Waldron, author of Phaidon's children's title, Harold's Hungry Eyes.

"Diligent dog owner that I am, I read all of the preamble first, which explains the value of home cooked meals, what foods should go into a healthy dog diet, and how to prepare, cook, serve and store the meals. This saved me a lot of time in understanding the recipes and helped to mitigate my surprise that foods like pasta and rice featured so heavily. I essentially live off both of these during times when midweek meals have to be cobbled together, so it was great to see that Mahler could do the same... I was relieved that, at seven items, the ingredients list was mercifully short. If you're going to make these meals regularly, as the author suggests, it's critical that the shopping and organisation is sustainable... It smelled pretty delicious and Mahler, who usually doesn't fuss at all when I cook, took up residence at my feet... The transition from his previous meals was smooth. He had plenty of energy for chasing squirrels and his digestion was great."—StyleDetails.com
