With 65 million dog owners in the U.S. alone, there is no question that commercial pet food is a huge and lucrative industry. But do these prepared foods provide the best nutrition for our pets? Often made with fillers and by-products cast off in the manufacture of human grade food, many commercial dog foods provide poor nutrition that has been linked to obesity, diabetes, kidney problems and skin disorders. But what is a pet owner to do? After all, many Americans barely have time to cook a balanced meal for themselves, much less their dogs.
Now, they can do both. In "THE DOG ATE IT: Cooking for Yourself and Your Four-Legged Friends" (Gotham Books; October 5, 2006; $15.00), James Beard Award-winner Linda West Eckhardt, along with Barbara Bradley and Judy Kern, has created the first ever cookbook with recipes designed for dogs and owners alike. From Chow Bella Burgers to Growly Good Granola, "THE DOG ATE IT" provides delicious and healthy meals for the whole household.
