The Consumer's Guide to Dog Food

by Liz Palika

Confused or concerned about what's in your dog's food? Do you want to know how to tell the difference between premium brands? If all foods promise "100 percent complete and balanced" why bother comparing? Why not select by price? Liz Palika answers these questions and more in her guide to dog food.

The Doggy Bone Cookbook

by Michele Bledsoe

The fun, easy way to bake love and nutrition into your dog's life! Veterinarian-approved recipes for Cinnabone, Peamutt Butter, Paw Lick'n Chick'n, Santa Paws, and more! This collection of great biscuit recipes comes with a 3" plastic bone-shaped cutter. The only downside: you'll never be able to get your baking sheets out without attracting a canine crowd. A small price to pay, in our opinion.
