Potential Within: Your Dog's Health

Today more than ever, pets are a welcome and important part of our families. They are vital to human well being, and their own well being is in human hands. How can we love, guide, care for, shelter and nourish our dogs in a way that will be meaningful for their health and quality of life?

Potential Within: Your Dog’s Health, A Natural Guide to Health, Happiness & Harmony For Your Canine Companion

(Biologic Publishing, 2009), the newest book from nutritional biochemist Franco Cavaleri, offers a unique and actionable perspective. Focusing on the pivotal role that nutrition plays in every aspect of canine health, Your Dog’s Health makes it clear that feeding and nourishing are two different things. Learn how nutrients interact with your pet’s genetic makeup, and how proper nutrition can positively impact the immune system, cognitive and emotional stability, energy, and more. With the programs presented in this book, positive results can be seen in just days. Even more remarkable though is the prospect of happier, healthier senior years for your dog.

While centered on nutrition, the book offers a holistic approach and a wealth of knowledge on all things canine that both new and experienced dog owners alike will appreciate. Chapters include:
