"I anticipated that this 3rd edition would be a thorough and
thoughtfully-written guide to natural health care for animals, packed full of
useful information and practical tips. My expectations were exceeded! Dr.
Pitcairn has a wonderful way of making both basic principles and complex topics
fresh and reader-friendly, all the while gently raising questions that encourage
thinking and re-thinking conventional "wisdom" in companion animal care. Who
should read this book? Those just embarking on the path of natural health for
their pets, those who have been on this path for years, and every
holistically-minded veterinarian who wants to understand root causes of disease
and expand his or her repertoire of treatments that truly support and help
restore health. Although I have used and recommended the earlier edition of this
book in my practice for years, I plan to make this new edition required reading
for my clients! --Lynn S. Peck, DVM, MS Holistic veterinarian and researcher

healthier, more natural and holistic approach to animal health. This up-dated
edition, in his easy-to-read, story-telling style, has added information on diet
and vaccinations based on recent research. The results achieved in animal
well-being by incorporating the dietary, herbal and homeopathic information
provided in previous editions have spoken for themselves. The new information
contained in this new edition will raise the quality of our companion animal
health just that much higher." --Dr. Kimberly Henneman, DVM
