Do you make your own pet food? Does it provide the proper nutrition for your pet?
Do you have any good dog and cat food recipes you’ve been feeding to your own animals that you can share with other cat and dog owners who want to stop using commercial pet foods? Can you please recommend any good dog and cat recipe and nutrition books?
Please e-mail the above information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure and include your name and city.
I’m getting a lot of correspondence from people who are very concerned about the recently recalled pet food. Even more so now that rat poison has been found in the recalled food.
Here are some typical e-mails:
Gary: This is the second dog food scare in the past year. I am ready to prepare my dogs’ meals not using commercial dog food. Are you aware of a dog nutrition book that would provide guidelines? My plan is to make my dogs’ food and supplement it with a daily vitamin. (Louise Massante, cyberspace)
Gary: Would you have a recipe handy for making homemade cat food until this recall scare is over? Would my cat be getting the nutrition she needs? Thanks! (Joy Berg, cyberspace)
Thanks for helping. I’ll make two lists — Dog and Cat Food Recipes and Pet Nutrition Books — and make this information available to anyone who wants it.
