Veterinarian Educates Pet Owners on Proper Nutrition for Their Furry Friends

With over 50 years of experience as a veterinarian, Dr. Bud Stuart has seen many trends in what we should and should not be feeding our beloved pets. In “Feeding Fido and Fluffy Too: Plus Lots More” (ISBN 1461164796), he addresses basic nutrition for dogs and cats that will help to minimize medical expenses and extend their life.

Stuart explains that most of the information pet owners receive about the food they are feeding comes one way or another from the pet food industry. Whether it is on the radio or television or in newspapers and magazines, the pet food industry and their information is everywhere. Stuart even claims that pet food corporations fund animal nutritional research done at various universities and research labs. With all of these factors combined, he believes that the public knows very little about properly feeding their Fido and Fluffy.

As a veterinarian who has always put nutrition first, Stuart wants to inform the public on how to give their pets the best food possible. He explains what to feed dogs and cats while providing the nutritional facts as support for his tactics. He acknowledges that his practices may be difficult, but he believes that readers will be glad that they followed his advice.

“Proper nutrition can cut medical expenses and expand a pet’s life by two to three years,” Stuart says.

Stuart believes with the proper nutrition tips and techniques, pet owners will be able to give their pets the best and healthiest lives possible while saving their money from unnecessary veterinary bills. He hopes his book raises awareness about how to properly feed pets, regardless of the advertisement and information seen in the media today.

“Feeding Fido and Fluffy Too: Plus Lots More” is available for sale online at and other channels.
