Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I really like the concept of looking at the whole animal from both a medical and an emotional standpoint. The New Holistic Way for Dogs & Cats offers a practical approach using mainstream and non-mainstream methods, along with valuable advice about how we can make our pets' everyday lives less stressful.    —TEMPLE GRANDIN, author of Animals Make Us Human and Animals in Translation

 

Before the word holistic became integral to veterinary medicine and practice, Dr. McCutcheon was already there.    —Dr. Michael W. Fox, veterinarian, animal behaviorist, and author of The Healing Touch for Cats and Dog Body, Dog Mind

 

Dr. Paul McCutcheon is always ahead of the pack when it comes to the health and wellness of animals. This book is just another example of this extraordinary veterinarian's forward thinking.    —Ann Rohmer, host of Animal House Calls

 

Dr. McCutcheon has looked at the problem we all face—stress—and put together a wonderful discussion of how it relates to our relationship with our animal companions, as well as] protocols to deal with it.    —Carvel G. Tiekert, DVM, founder of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

I really like the concept of looking at the whole animal from both a medical and an emotional standpoint. The New Holistic Way for Dogs & Cats offers a practical approach using mainstream and non-mainstream methods, along with valuable advice

Synopsis:

Stress. It's the single, universal cause of both wellness and illness. While this theory is widely supported in the human medical community, it's still controversial among veterinarians. Dr. Paul McCutcheon examines the all-important health-stress connection while drawing upon the latest scientific thinking and combining it with a comprehensive, preventive, and holistic philosophy of pet care. So if you're among the millions of caring, responsible pet owners who visits the vet more often than your own doctor but still wonders what more you can do for your dog or cat, The New Holistic Way for Dogs & Cats is the next best thing to a consultation with Dr. McCutcheon. If only he saw human patients in his practice, too!
