Discussing the worldwide problem of overweight pets, this comprehensive writing explains how behavior—both of pets and people—is a critical aspect of any proper diet. It discusses how pets are poorly adapted to cope with a constant excess of soluble carbohydrate, a common feature found in the majority of dry kibble diets. Therefore, this reference shows how, oftentimes while pet owners believe that they are providing the best nutrition for their pets, they are actually silently robbing their companions of health and longevity in their failure to restrict carbohydrates. In response to this situation this informative book draws on anthropology, genetics, and behavior to establish logical nutrition, thereby educating pet owners on how they can improve the length and quality of their pets' lives.
