We take for granted the need to consider nutritional benefits of the food we eat, but what about the meals we provide for some of our best friends -- our pets? Dr Sash Herbert, senior vet at Melbourne's Lort Smith Animal Hospital where they treat more than 80,000 pets a year, has made a lifetime study of the importance of the right diet for our animals. She regularly treats much-loved pets that need her attention because their diet is lacking some of the basic nutrients they need for good health.
In 'Super Pet', Dr Herbert explains in simple terms what each group of animals needs in its diet. She discusses all sorts of pets, including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, snake, turtle and lizards. For each there is a plain explanation of what problems case arise when dietary needs are not met, followed by a comprehensive collection of easy-to-make recipes for all sorts of tasty meals you can provide for your pet. There are main courses, bulk recipes to cook up and freeze, small snacks, and even little treats to prepare and dole out when you feel like spoiling your mate.
'Super Pet' will change the way you think about what your pet needs and eats. You'll enjoy Sasha's straightforward approach and your pet will thank you every time you serve up one of these recipes. The book is beautifully designed with wonderful pictures throughout.
