Feeding Miss Lilly front cover

Front Matter

Please note: This book is primarily about how I fed my own dog, Miss Lilly. It is as much a story of our life together as it is a treatise on my philosophy and practice when it comes to feeding dogs.

There are many schools of thought on feeding dogs, ranging from 100% RMB (raw meat & bones) to 100% vegan (all plants, no animals), and from the entirely analytical (eating by numbers) to the entirely intuitive (going by feel). My approach considers each but lies somewhere in between.

As I will probably never meet your dog, I can't offer specific advice on how to feed her/him. I am simply sharing my experience of feeding Miss Lilly for the 15 years we lived together, and through the evolution in my understanding of how to feed dogs for good health.
