    You've got to know about acupressure/acupressure before understanding this book

    I found this book all but impossible to understand. I don't have a background in acupressure or acupressure and I don't want to learn it now - no time!- I just wanted to help my dog, reading something in plain English. Not a book for the novice, for sure. It was recommended to me but I have to say I have set it down after one look.

    Extremely valuable reference for Cat & Dog health and diagnosis. Reinforces similar meridians and acupoints and there use in humans

    A refreshingly simple guide to the use of meridians and acupoints in dog and cats to diagnose and treat ailments. More importantly a system which unlike contempory vet science, allows one to check regularly the overall health of a dog or cat and fix problems before they materialise as symptoms. A pity its not in hardcover.
