Food Pets Die For: Shocking Facts About Pet Food|
by Ann N. Martin (Author)
From Publishers Weekly
Food Pets Die for: Shocking Facts About Pet Food by Ann N. Martin was the first
expos‚ of the shocking practices within the pet food manufacturing industry.
Since the book's publication in 1997, she has been calling attention to the
dubious ingredients and methods employed by many firms. And in this updated
guide, Martin continues to put pressure on the big companies to find
alternatives. She suggests that if acceptable commercially prepared food is not
available, food can be made at home using safe and human-quality ingredients,
and she provides recipes and suggestions for supplements.
Ann Martin was the first to expose the fact that euthanized cats and dogs are
common ingredients in many commercial pet foods. For this second edition, the
updated and revised version of the grassroots bestseller, she expanded her
research to find that pet food can also contain diseased cattle, contaminated
meat, moldy grain, roadkill, and rancid fats from restaurants. Also new is a
chapter on how cats and dogs are used to test the nutritional claims of pet food ingredients.
