How to Help Your Dog Live a Longer and Healthier Life!
See Spot Live Longer, now in its seventh printing, combines the most recent nutritional science with easy-to-follow practical advice on how to help dogs live longer. Here is a summary of the book:
Introduces the reader to a few of the many dogs and cats the authors have known whose lives have been transformed by fresh food diets.
Compares the radical difference between the natural diet of dogs, which includes a variety of high-protein raw foods, and the modern diet, which usually includes only high-carbohydrate, highly processed dry food. We examine in detail the macronutrient (protein, carbohydrate, fat, water) and micronutrient (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes) content in these diets. We also discuss why dogs can thrive on carrion and other high bacteria content foods.
Discusses the inevitable toxins and allergens in dry foods, especially those that use low quality grains, and how these substances may be major factors in the cancer and allergy epidemic in dogs.
Part FourShows the reader how easy it is to immediately help dogs live longer. The main emphasis is on how to improve the dog's diet, even using foods that would normally be thrown away. We also discuss how to avoid toxins, especially those close to the ground toxins that humans often don't see; the importance of proper exercise; and keeping dogs lean.
Provide detailed information about dry dog food recipes and costs, give advice on how to select dry food, discuss the question of missing hybrid vigor (and Steve's Charlee Bear® dogs), and explore possible origins of health problems.
“As with people, there is an ideal diet that your dog is designed to eat to live the longest, happiest life possible. But as also with people—most dogs’ diets are dangerously off the mark, contributing to a variety of serious diseases. To avoid this and greatly increase your dog’s ability to live a long and happy life, I strongly encourage you to read See Spot Live Longer. If you love your dog, please read this book!”

“This comprehensive, thoughtful book is essential reading for all guardians who care about their dogs’ health. The authors clearly show why diet is the key to optimal health....Best of all, this book suggests many easy ways to improve on a commercial diet, from simply adding supplements, to going all out for a totally homemade diet.”
