You want your dog's food to be safe enough for a baby, because you love your dog like a child. You are a busy person but you're willing to cook for your dog because you want to choose each ingredient and know exactly what your dog is eating. Human dietetians have university degrees. You want your dog's recipes formulated by a qualified pet nutritionist with a university degree in pet nutrition. You probably haven't read the National Research Council's Nutrient Requirements of Dogs and Cats or the Association of American Feed Control Official's AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles but you value science and you want your dog's food to deliver 100% complete and balanced nutrition as defined by these internationally-recognized standards.

I'm Hilary Watson and I've been a pet nutritionist for more than 20 years. The 101 recipes in my cookbook deliver 100% complete and balanced nutrition as defined by AAFCO. Each of my recipes is balanced with HILARY'S BLEND supplement, the first and only pre-biotic vitamin mineral supplement specifically designed to balance home-made recipes. The first ingredient in my supplement is chicory root extract, a natural fibre that stimulates healthy bacteria in the gut, improving digestion and reducing intestinal toxins. HILARY'S BLEND supplement contains 22 essential vitamins and minerals at levels that complement those naturally found in fresh fruits, vegetables and meats.

My recipes are fast and easy to prepare. They can be made in batches and frozen. My recipes offer 100% complete and balanced nutrition. They are proven favorites with even the pickiest of eaters. They have helped dogs with allergies, skin and coat problems, sensitive digestive systems as well as diseases such as kidney disease, cardiac disease, gastroenteritis, pancreatic disease and other medical conditions (read owner testimonials). If you want the nutritious goodness of fresh human foods combined with the scientific rigor of complete and balanced nutrition, my cookbook and supplement are for you. Your dog will thank you at every meal!

Raw versus cooked? - my personal opinion.

Read what happened to this puppy when he was fed an unbalanced diet of raw beef and an organic veggie premix(abstract from the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association).

Are meats interchangeable in a recipe? No, No, NO!!!
