Pet nutritionist  Hilary Watson will speak  at two events in November about pet nutrition and homemade dog food.

Watson says dog food should include protein, fat, 11 vitamins and 12 minerals, balanced properly. Her book, Complete & Balanced 101 Healthy Home-made Meals for Dogs , covers tested recipes for pet owners seeking an alternative to store brands. ( See another presentation  from Kathryn E. Michel on unconventional diets.)
