Due to the fact that the pet food industry remains unregulated, consumers could very well be buying products for their animal companions that could be detrimental to their health. Regardless of pet food related deaths, this $53 bn dollar industry remains unregulated. Did you know that some pet food include ingredients from rendered euthanized animals, diseased animal parts and insect infested foods? Currently, there are efforts being made to change this. Susan Thixton, Founder of TruthAboutPetFood.com, a world renowned authority on pet food has launched a crusade to put an end to FDA compliance policies that allow these horrendous ingredients into pet foods.

By empowering consumers with the knowledge they need, this will also help reduce the number of pet food related deaths. In order to do this, Susan decided the best way to teach consumers was by creating an actual cookbook in conjunction with Dr. Cathy Alinovi, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. The best-selling book, Dinner PAWsible, which was recently released, has been a smash hit with pet parents and animal lovers around the globe.

While there are many resources available for recipes for your pets, none of them offer a complete day-to-day balanced meal plan for your cat or dog and actually offer the opportunity to connect directly with the authors. Subsequently, most meal plans require supplements in order to achieve nutritional balance. Dinner PAWsible does things the old fashioned way and actually uses selected foods to provide the required nutritional value. Most people assume that veterinarian can guide them but unfortunately most are not trained in pet nutrition. This has often been a huge problem for many pet owners, especially if they are not given proper guidance by someone who has been trained in pet nutrition. Tune in to host, June Stoyer talk to Susan Thixton about how you can prepare meals for your pet.
