Three veterinarians that are friends and allies of concerned petsumers have stepped forward with a new book about the pet food industry. The book is fabulous! Not Fit for a Dog! written by Dr. Michael W. Fox, Dr. Elizabeth Hodgkins, and Dr. Marion E. Smart is a wonderful book that provides an interesting medical perspective to Big Pet Food. Great read, highly recommend it.
I have to admit, I was beyond honored when I was contacted by Deanna Krantz – Dr. Michael Fox’s wife – asking me to review the new book. Me? Sure! And then I somewhat panicked. Dr. Fox is such a hero to me. He’s one of a handful of veterinarians out there that stands up to Big Pet Food. But what if the book was nothing more than other pet food industry books? What would I say in a review? Knowing me as I do…I don’t do too good with fluff writing (aka painfully honest). I struggled with this until the book arrived.
Well, it turns out I had nothing to worry about (what was I thinking?…look who the authors are!). Not Fit for a Dog! is amazing. Imagine three veterinarians that ‘get it’ about pet food, three veterinarians that see how important nutrition is to our pets. Now imagine sitting down with these three veterinarians and asking them questions about what corn or soy does to the insides of your pet, asking them their opinion on raw food or home cooked pet food or prescription pet foods….that’s Not Fit for a Dog! This is what the book does. It’s medical, but not too medical. It’s science, but not too much science. The book gives pet owners – in no uncertain terms – medical evidence of what most commercial pet foods are doing to the health of millions of pets.
If I could wave a magic wand, and receive a free wish…I’d wish that every practicing veterinarian would read this book. And with one more wave of my magic wand, I’d have every AVMA Diplomat that voted against the feeding of raw pet food be required to read this book too. Not Fit for a Dog! tears apart the raw pet food misconceptions, destroys the prescription pet food fix-it theory, and so much more. The book is common sense backed by medical science (I’d love to see how the AVMA would talk their way out of this one).
If you think you’ve read it all about the pet food industry, you haven’t. Not Fit for a Dog! is a very unique book that I recommend to any pet food consumer that wants to learn more. You’ll want to keep this book for reference purposes (plus there are home prepared pet food recipes in the back), so buy an extra copy for your vet. Seriously…buy an extra copy for your vet. Practicing veterinarians will be hard pressed to find a valid argument against the truth spoken in this book. I can’t imagine the good that could be done if more vets understood…this book can turn the tides.
My sincere thank you to Dr. Fox, Dr. Hodgkins, and Dr. Smart for taking the time to put together such a wonderful book about the pet food industry. I’m hopeful your words can help change the future of pet food.

It’s also great because of the different variations that have been designed for certain dogs depending on their age and their size. Each of these options have subtle differences which really make for the best fit for your dog no matter the age or size – you will have the best choice for him straight out of the bag!
The first thing I noticed about this dog food is the mentality behind the food and how it has been created and with what in mind. As an example to take good care of your dog’s digestive system only high quality proteins have been used.
The final thing I want to talk about this dog food is the value. When you consider the quality of the ingredients and the thought that has been put into this food the value is amazing. This food is really affordable and considering it has these properties the value for money is really immense and puts quite a lot of their competitors to shame to what they can offer for sure a great price point.Pros
Also alongside that probiotics have been added which will add the dogs digestion in both the stomach and the rest of the digestive system. Perfect Fit have followed this mentality for their whole dog food regime which makes not only the dog food incredibly high quality but extremely good for your dogs health.
Dog owners including myself have reported happy dogs with plenty of energy across the board. When I say plenty of energy I mean a nice balance that isn’t too much or not enough – it feels like a nice medium to me.
How much dry food should I feed my dog?
Since it’s impossible to predict the exact serving size that’s “perfect” for each dog when feeding a specific brand of food…
It’s best to start with the amount of kibble suggested by the feeding instructions on the bag… like this example:
Adjust that serving size up or down… to keep your dog at ideal weight.
