This book on natural health care for pets covers an incredible amount of material. There are chapters on herbs, homeopathy, flower essences, crystals, and nutrition. The heart of the book is a listing of major diseases with recommendation for treatment. While this book would not replace a trip to the vet in most cases, it does provide alternative ideas on treatments.

One complaint I have with this book is that it is mainly for dogs and cats, with parrots and rabbits getting only a few mentions. While dogs and cats do outnumber parrots, it would have been very nice to have more material on them.

Personally, I have used many of the techniques in this book from nutrition to homeopathy. It was the source for my introduction to TTouch. I do admit, however, I am still a bit skeptical of crystals especially when dealing with major problems such as cancer.

Still, for an introduction to various alternative treatments, this book can't be beaten! ( )

This is my go-to book for alternative treatments. Mother Nature does know best!
"I hope The Encyclopedia of Natural Pet Care will inspire you to become more involved with your pet's care, to improve their diet, to question and learn about every medical procedure that anyone, including a holistic vet, recommends for them, to become actively involved in their care and to expect a lifetime of good health, glossy coats, bright eyes, strong bones, alert intelligence and calm disposition in your furred and feathered companions." Forward by Beverly Cappel-King D.V.M.
