Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So I'll preface this by saying I'm hard to please with nutrition books. Contrary to popular belief, vets/vet students these days DO get nutrition education and it's NOT all paid for by food companies (Ha! I wish! With 6-figure educational debt staring me down, it'd be nice to catch a break.) So, I like a good dollop of science in my nutrition books, and it's hard to impress me.

Dog Food Logic impressed me. Linda case (author of the Science Dog blog, which I love, by the by) has written a really excellent book that I HIGHLY recommend to anyone who's interested in canine nutrition.

The best thing about this book is that the author does not tell you what to feed. I know we all want there to be a right answer, but the truth is far more complicated than that, and every dog is an individual. What's right for you may not be right for someone else, etc. Case doesn't come down too hard on any one company, feeding style, etc... she's an equal opportunity investigator. Instead of shoving one feeding methodology down your throat, she teaches you the skills you need to think critically and make the best decisions for you and your pets.

I loved that she based everything in science, citing scientific studies and tests often. I do wish she'd have done more to dispel the myth that vets know nothing about nutrition, as it's a sentiment I have to deal often.

Overall, I think it's a really great resource to have. It might be a bit technical for some, but she does include take-away messages that summarize her points nicely. I can potentially see people having problems with some of her points/conclusions, BUT keep an open mind. All of what she has to say is backed by science, and again, she'd pretty darn unbiased.

Maybe the most entertaining part of the book was the section on marketing! I giggled out loud a few times at some of the subtle things companies do to market their products. My favorite example was "farm-raised vegetables" with her comment "every vegetable is raised on a farm."
