Winner of the DWAA Maxwell Award for 2006 Best Care and Health Book

The first and only nutrition book written for performance dogs!
Veterinarian, musher, obedience competitor and breeder, Dr. Jocelynn Jacobs, saw the need for sound, scientific nutritional information in her busy veterinary practice and in the world of canine sports. She realized that much of what is passed around the dog world as facts about ingredients and canine nutrition are less than scientific and sometimes downright dangerous for the dog. Dr. Jacobs created this book to help competitors in a wide range of dog sports improve performance and get great results. The information is also useful for the dog owner who wants to learn more about canine nutrition without the marketing hype.

Get the facts
• How to interpret dog food ingredient lists so you can tell which foods are right for your dog--and which are wrong.
• Why different types of performance dogs have different nutritional requirements--and how to choose what is right for your dog.
• The benefit of certain nutrients and how they promote peak performance.
• How to make your dog a top winner with simple nutritional recommendations.

Praise for Performance Dog Nutrition
This book reflects Dr. Jacobs' dedication to dogs and their health. Kudos to her for this thorough discussion of canine nutrition and for writing the first book that addresses nutrition for the canine athlete.
Chris Zink, DVM, PhD author of Peak Performance: Coaching the Canine Athlete
