Grow Your Pups with Bones
is the second book in a series dealing with feeding companion animals for maximum health. The first book in this series - Give Your Dog a Bone
- contains important background material and where possible should be read first.
The mission of Grow Your Pups with Bones
is firstly, to show the dog owning fraternity how easy it is to produce healthy pups without the losses, headaches and heartaches so many breeders experience, and secondly, how easy it is to grow those pups into healthy adults with a sound skeletal system. Grow Your Pups with Bones
is divided into three parts:
- The first part introduces the Bones and Raw Food (BARF) diet for feeding dogs. This method of feeding dogs is the very heart of Grow Your Pups with Bones. It is based on the dietary needs of dogs as shaped by several hundred thousand years of evolution.
- The second part of Grow Your Pups with Bones is about breeding. In particular - feeding for breeding. It details the practical common sense approach to producing an optimum number of healthy pups with a minimum of fuss. The BARF diet is central to this pup-producing programme.
- The third part of Grow Your Pups with Bones is about growing pups into healthy adults that do not develop Hip or Elbow Dysplasia, or any of the other skeletal diseases which are so common in modern dogs. Central to this third part of the book is the BARF programme of diet and exercise.
The basic theme of this book, the BARF diet, has been inspired by the continuing observation that companion animals are much healthier when fed their biologically appropriate diet based on Bones and Raw Foods.
