    ‘I was skeptical about feeding dogs a plant-based diet, but after digging into it, I became a supporter. Lisette and Rick explain in this book that nothing has to be compromised in terms of food quality, palatability and health for our four-legged friends. Highly recommended and great to enjoy by the dog as well the caretaker. Reducing animal suffering and therefore eating less animal products is the future for humans and animals.
