Home cooking for pets doesn’t have to be complicated or hard as the book “Dinner PAWsible: A Cookbook of Nutritious, Homemade Meals for Cats and Dogs” shows.
Brought to you by Susan Thixton, founder of TruthaboutPetFood.com and Dr. Cathy Alinovi, a holistic veterinarian and owner of Hoofstock Veterinary Clinic in New York, Dinner PAWsible is a collection of more than fifty cat and dog food recipes that will teach you how to whip up a fresh, balanced meal for your hungry critters.
We love the trustworthiness of this book because it’s written by a veterinarian certified in food therapy (Alinovi) and an advocate for pet food safety (Thixton), so you know you’re getting reputable nutrition information for pets. In addition, their recipes are also based on the National Research Council requirements for dogs and cats.

Dinner Pawsible Cancer Diet
