Raw Meaty Bones: Promote Health
Tom Lonsdale’s vivid description of the early days of raw meaty bones discovery, evidence of the veterinary professions’ failings and a road map for the future.
Readers learn about the Australian Raw Meaty Bones Lobby Group of concerned veterinarians who pieced together the vital need for domestic carnivores, dogs, cats and ferrets, to rip, tear and crunch their food at every, or almost every, meal.
Tom Lonsdale tells of his wide-eyed excitement at discovering that pets do not need to suffer a lifetime of mouth rot and other chronic diseases arising from a diet of canned and packaged junk food. By starting puppies and kittens on meals of whole carcasses or the pragmatic next best option, raw meaty bones, pets can stay healthy and avoid costly visits to the vet over a lifetime.
389 pages of peer-reviewed fully referenced information for pet owners, veterinarians, medical and dental researchers, teachers, journalists, regulators and anyone who cares about animals, the human economy and natural environment. Chapter 14, A cybernetic hypothesis of periodontal disease, proposes a new paradigm of health and disease that helps explain and predict so much that was previously a mystery.
For less than the price of a veterinary consultation pet owners learn how prevention not treatment leads to vital health benefits and cost savings.
