The Forever Dog: A New Science Blueprint for Raising Healthy and Happy Canine Companions

The Forever Dog will teach you how you easily can give your dog a healthy, happy and long life.

The sick modern dog

Just like people, dogs are getting sicker and living for a shorter amount of time in the past years, Scientists have begun to understand that the chronic diseases affecting people – cancer, obesity, diabetes, organ failure, and autoimmune diseases – are the same disease affecting our dogs. What is causing the rise of these diseases?

Based on scientific research

The authors of The Forever Dog, Rodney Habib and Dr. Karen Becker have gathered the research and knowledge from the best geneticists, microbiologists, and longevity scientists to answer this question. Based on this the book provides practical and useful advice. How you can affect the health of your dog, for example through food and nutrition.

Pros and cons of different typs of dog food

The Forever Dog looks at the pros and cons of all the different types of dog food. It explains how you can easily analyze the dog food you are using, to learn how much nutrition contains. The book will help you determine what is your best option. In terms of time, budget and what you want for your dog. You will learn easy tricks than makes a difference to your dog.

Recepies and lists

In The Forever Dog you will find several recipes (for example bone broth). You will also find useful lists with healthy food for your dog, making it easy to sort the information. I have written my own lists based on this and a few other books. I add items from the list to my dogs food, depending on what I have available at home. Even though I am above average interested in nutrition for my dogs, I still need it to be practical. My advice to you is that you see what works best for you, your dog, and your routines.

The Forever Dog – Highly recommended!

I have read several books on nutrition for dogs, and most of the books can be quite “heavy” to read, with many professional phrases and “interruptions” for research references. This sometimes ruins the “flow” when reading, and personally, I think this book has solved it in a great way, by placing all the references online.

The book has been written in a way that keeps it interesting and easy to keep up, regardless if you have existing knowledge on the topic. The Forever Dog has all the science to back it up but also contains practical, specific advice and not least of all, inspirational stories, that make this a great book, from start to finish.

I highly recommend The Forever Dog!
