Feed Your Pet Right

We, as humans and consumers, may look at food labels before we buy a product. Maybe if it's too high in sugar or sodium or fat we won't buy it. If you have a pet, have you ever read the labels on pet food? You might be surprised. This book, Feed Your Pet Right, is by a human nutritionist, Dr. Marion Nestle, and an animal nutrition expert, Dr. Maldon Neheim. The authors take a fascinating look at the science behind pet food and guides pet owners to make informed decisions to provide a healthy, balanced diet for their pets.

There was recently an interview with the authors of this book on the Diane Rehm Show on NPR. You can listen to it at http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2010-05-12/marion-nestle-malden-nesheim-feed-your-pet-right Personally, I think the show did not do a very good job of communicating to owners that pets who get homemade diets rather than store bought food are more likely to become malnourished unless their owners are veterinarians or nutritionists.
