  • Big Kibble

    Big Kibble (Shawn Buckley, DR. Oscar Chavez, with Wendy Paris) should be read by all pet owners. The authors compare the Big Kibble industry to Big Tobacco and after reading this book I can understand why. Made in America doesn't mean ALL ingredients are from America. I want to thank NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for an early copy to review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fur babies and what they eat

    I received a free electronic ARC of this awesome animal lovers self-help book from authors Shawn Buckley and Dr. Oscar Chavez, Netgalley, and publisher St. Martin's Press - Health, Mind, and Body. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this novel of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. Big Nibble is especially welcome to my family's research shelf and an eye-opening look at how we manage our household and maintain the health and nutrition of our animal members. My daughter started making a nutritious mix including meat or fish, legumes, spinach, or kale, and assorted grains about 6 months ago, supplementing their Purina brand dried foods. We have found some things out by experience - our critters have all suffered from food anxiety in their younger years - our ten-year-old track rescued greyhound can manipulate that lovely long nose around getting everything in the bowl but the brown lintels and carrot shavings. The eight-year-old rescued feral cats will eat almost anything as long as there is kibble in the kibble bowl, though they seldom eat much of that dry food. All of the critters are grateful for the interesting additional recipes that can add variety to their meals. We have stuck with Purina brand foods supplemented with table scraps for the last 50 years without any problems, but this bunch are getting older and were noticeably slowing down, and stuck home through this pandemic without daily bark park runs and leisurely walks through the local hardware stores our greyhound Marie was doing noticeably less running and playing in the yard as the days passed. And the cats are, according to their vet, getting fat. We honestly didn't notice until we saw them on the scales. And after that awakening, we got on our own scales and realized our clothes were not shrinking in the new washer. Protein-pushing became a way of life around here. Reading Big Kibble has moved that method of feeding into the fast lane. And feeding aside, there are so many hints and tips on keeping your animals healthy and happy! This is a lifestyle change that can only improve and extend the days of our fur buddies. It is a book I will refer to often, and one I will gift to my animal-loving sisters. You can't go wrong, following the advice of Shawn Buckley and Dr. Oscar Chavez. Your critters will thank you for reading it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
