You really don’t want to read what is in the food you are feeding your dog. However, it is an eye-opening read. Big Kibble essentially throws anything they can get, that is cheap, into the mix. Their history of doing so goes back to post WWI. All those war horses returning from the war didn’t get a hero’s welcome. Instead, they were made into canned dog food. It just gets worse from there.
I was hoping for a non-biased look into the efficacy of each brand of dog food. While some brands, like Gravy Train, should clearly be avoided, no national brand wins full approval. In fact, what a coincidence! The author’s brand is the highest recommended brand. There are recipes included so dog owners can make their own quality dog food at home.
The history of Big Kibble’s exploits is my favorite part of this book. Maybe, I just had false expectations but I felt the rest was disingenuous. 3 stars.
Thanks to St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
