Multi-Billion-Dollar Pet Food Fraud by Dr. Tom Lonsdale is the author’s campaign for pet health and diet. Part one of the book is a memoir, and the rest is a textbook about the author’s criticism of junk pet food and animal care.

Dr. Lonsdale encourages pet owners to avoid feeding their pets processed foods and instead switch them to raw, meaty bones. He discussed the implications of commercial diets for cats and dogs and shared the benefits of raw pet foods. The book contains discussions like the negative effects of canned and dry pet foods and the right pet care. There are also testimonies from different pet owners on how raw, meaty bones save their pets from illness. The author also shared back-and-forth letters with different prospects concerning raw food diets. Dr. Lonsdale also uncovers the rising pet food industries that sell processed pet foods across the globe.

I admire the author’s bravery in speaking the essential truths about junk pet food and animal welfare. Dr. Lonsdale’s concern for pets’ health and diet is transparent in this book, as he wants the best for pets. Evidence supports his strong opinions. I saw it in the healthy pictures of his cat and dogs on the last pages of the book. By feeding them raw, meaty bones, their health improves, and they are free from periodontal disease, bad breath, and other health issues.

Multi-Billion-Dollar Pet Food Fraud: Hiding in Plain Sight is a follow-up to the author's previous book, Raw Meaty Bones: Promote Health.

What makes me comfortable with this book is its approachable format and readability. The book has excellent editing as well. The additional drawings and photographs add more vibrancy to the book.

I have only one dislike for this book: the black lines that appeared in Appendix E, which covered some sentences. But this one minor issue doesn’t diminish the significance of the book. Thus, I happily award the book 5 out of 5 stars. My comfortable experience made it achieve the highest rating. In conclusion, the book is an exceptional resource for veterinarians, pet owners, and animal advocates.

A different topic than what I used to read. I do not have a pet, but I appreciate the author sharing his views on this industry. Your review is distinguished and beautifully written, Hazel.

Pets are pretty much your family so you want to do what's best for them. I didn't realise that pet food is such an issue for their health and wellbeing. I'll have to find out more and read this book in the future. Thanks for your enlightening review, Hazel!

By reading this book, I found out that processed pet foods are detrimental to pets' health. Raw meaty bones are exactly what they needed as they are born to eat it. Thank you so much, Shally, for your wonderful comment!

I think this book teaches us not to blindly believe in advertisements and expert rhetoric, but to search for truth and evidence on our own. It also makes us understand that we have a responsibility and obligation to provide our pets with the best living conditions and care. So I think this book is valuable and meaningful.

I'm glad that the author decided to speak on this issue of processed foods because it not only applies to pets/animals but also to us humans. A lot of nutritional value is lost due to the processing of raw food, hence the need for emphasis on eating, not raw, but instead, unprocessed foods. I love the meticulous nature of your review. Thanks and thumbs up for the great work.

It's so disheartening to think that some pet food companies care more about their income than the pet's well-being.
I'm glad the author gave a clear illustration of the best options for the pets.
Great review!

Thank you so much, Blackstenius! Healthy diets mostly come from raw foods like fruits. I agree that processed foods slowly harm us if consumed continuously. It's the same case of humans and pets.

Great review!
Yes, it is saddening. They're just concerned of profit than the well-being of pets. It's not just some pet food industries, some vets as well support processed foods, maybe because of commission?

Thank you so much, Ms.Chet for your 'sound-concerned' comment!
