What People Are Saying

Holly Hazard
Getting back to basics, takes on a new and important meaning in relation to this insightful and thought provoking work. Awakening to techniques that have worked for 1000's of years will provide both the reader and her furry companion with options for care that will add significant quality to their lives.
Executive Director, Doris Day Animal League
Jane Bicks
I believe that veterinarians should study this art - to return to the days when healing was about mind, spirit, and body. We need to know how to make our cats more comfortable in our offices and during home visits by applying acupressure. The time has come to integrate traditional medicine with alternative medicine. Once we do that, we will truly be serving our feline family members.
Veterinarian, Author and TV Host
Michael W. Fox
This work is a contribution to the necessary turn-around in our thinking about our reactions toward animals. It is indeed a welcome and much needed addition to the manuals on companion animal care and health maintenance.
