Like the original, the second edition of The Holistic Guide for a Healthy Dog includes all of the in-depth information readers need to evaluate their dogs' dietary and medical regimens in light of holistic alternatives, and provides them with a new way to look at canine health in general. However, this new edition is updated and revamped with more information on all things holistic for the new millennium. In this updated version of a dog care classic, readers learn more about:
  • How to read commercial dog food labels and understand what they really mean
  • The Natural Diet and how to prepare it
  • Raising puppies and caring for older dogs
  • What supplements are all about
  • How to assess vaccinations and lab tests
  • Kinesiology
  • Homeopathy
  • The Five-Element Theory of traditional Chinese medicine and much more.
The Holistic Guide for a Healthy Dog has tips for everyone. Whether the reader is a new dog owner or an old pro at home remedies and health food for dogs, they will gain insight into canine health as a whole as well as their own dog's health and well-being.
