Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats

Second Edition

Now completely updated and revised, this is an expanded edition of the classic natural pet-care book by veterinarian Richard H. Pitcairn and his wife Susan Pitcairn-- both renowned specialists in chemical-free nutrition, treatment and natural healing for pets. Written with the warmth and compassion that have won the Pitcairns a nationwide following, this guide will help you select the most compatible dog or cat for your own lifestyle-- and show you how to provide the very best in companionship, healing, nutrition and lifelong care. Since its publication more than a decade ago, the Pitcairns' book has become the definitive guide to a natural lifestyle for dogs and cats.

A comprehensive, thorough reference, this pet-lover's companion will tell you:

* How to choose a healthy animal

* Dozens of recipes for delicious, economical, healthful pet food-- with completely updated tables, charts and nutritional guidelines

* How to give your pet a checkup

* What's really in pet foods-- and which ones to avoid to ensure your pet's best health

* Special diets for special pets

* A guide to handling emergencies that includes techniques for external heart massage, artificial respiration and control of bleeding


An in-depth, alphabetical "Quick Reference" section that gives specific instructions for preventing, diagnosing and treating a wide variety of animal diseases and disorders-- from abscesses, allergies and behavior problems to vaccination risks, weight problems and worms. The Pitcairns' approach is drug-free and holistic-- with special attention to homeopathic and alternative remedies and treatments.

Have you ever wondered HOW much glucosamine to give your arthritic dog, if holistic Bach Flower, herbal or homepathic remedies have any effect on your dog's health issues or whether or not a vegetarian diet is a good or a bad idea for you dog or cat? Than this is the book to get pronto. A comprehensive guide to dog and cat health and well-being, you'll learn about everything from what and how much to actually feed your dog to how to treat anal gland impactions, whiny clinging foster dog, or a pet with cancer. The most worn out copy of any book I own on pet health care, it has saved me a boat load in vet bills.

One of the most comprehensive guides to many facets of holistic animal care and recommended by numerous veterinarians and animal nutritionists, this guide has been a standard for years. I use the section on nutrition and diets most frequently, as it contains numerous recipies for both normal and specialty diets for cats and dogs.
