Meet the Author

Dr. Shawn Messonnier is a well-known veterinarian, lecturer, consultant, and pet care advocate. After graduating from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1987, he opened Paws and Claws Animal Hospital in Plano, Texas. At that time it was the first office in Plano to offer specialized services for exotic pets.
After seeing that the number of cats and dogs afflicted with chronic medical problems failed to improve over the years with conventional medicine, Dr. Messonnier turned to alternative therapies. Encouraged by positive results, he opened the Acupuncture & Holistic Animal Health Care Center as part of his ongoing practice.
In addition to authoring numerous papers and chapters of books on a range of topics, Dr. Mesonnier has written eighteen books for both pet owners and veterinarians. Currently he serves on the advisory board of the highly respected international veterinary journal, Veterinary Forum, and is creator and editor-in-chief of the leading publication for doctors treating exotic pets, Exotic Pet Practice.
He also lectures widely at veterinary conferences both inside and outside the United States.

    Great Resource Book

    I have bought a lot of books on natural health for dogs and cats. This book is my favorite. It is well researched, well presented (easy to use), and offers solutions for health problems as well as preventative and general care of our pets. Well worth the money. And I never bother to write reviews....

    Finally a Bible for Pets!

    This book is a MUST for all pet owners. It very simply shows how to integrate conventional and complementary therapies. There are great diet recipes for home cooking, and important information on the side effects of common drugs like Rimadyl with suggestions on alternatives to the drugs. After reading this book, I know I can use supplements to help my pets without always using medications. And I definitely won't vaccinate my pets every year but will use the titer approach recommended in the section on vaccines. As soon as I finish this book I'm going to check out the other books in the Natural Vet series as well.
