When The Collins Guide to Dog Nutrition made its initial appearance in 1972 it was hailed as "the greatest contribution to dog feeding since the invention of the can opener!" it was also the first time a major book on this vital subject was made available to persons outside the scientific community. During the intervening years The Collins Guide to Dog Nutrition has achieved the deserved status of a classic: a peerless source of reference for every dog feeder.
The new edition provides essential information about foods and feeding methods now widely used that were hardly known or entirely non-existent when the first edition was published. Happily, everything in the first edition that made this book so outstanding remains in the new edition. This will be particularly welcome by new readers.
Pet owners, hobbyists and professionals can all benefit from The Collins Guide to Dog Nutrition. It takes a complex subject and makes it easier for dog feeders to understand to furnish a better standard of living for all the dogs in their care.
