Overview

The world of veterinary medicine is changing. People are realizing that if alternative medicine is better for them, it's better for their pets, too. Dogs are visiting acupuncturists, chiropractic doctors, and homeopaths. Still, many dog owners are unaware that such simple measures as changing their pet's diet and using vitamins, herbs, and other natural cures can help prevent or heal ailments ranging from excessive scratching to depression to a host of serious diseases.

The Veterinarians' Guide to Natural Remedies for Dogs is both an introduction and a guide to the vast world of natural healing methods, treatments, and foods now available for dogs. Author Martin Zucker offers advice from dozens of holistic practitioners and licensed veterinarians, who share their recipes, insights, and "prescriptions." Here dog owners will find information on everything from nutritional supplements to massage therapy, as well as how these treatments can be used alone or in conjunction with traditional medications and surgical techniques.

I love this book, and am now giving it as gifts to all my dog owner friends and family. I have a Cocker that has liver disease and this book helped with that. I have tried other remedies in the books for fleas, diarrhea, etc and so far have not been disappointed. I have tried these remedies and they worked and didn't need to go to the vet. My Cocker now has normal bloodwork and is doing well along with a homecooked diet. I you have a dog with liver disease, I also highly recommend the book: 'Hope for Healing LIver Disease In Your Dog by Cyndi Smasal. These two books saved my dog's life and am now using these on my other dogs as well with considerable improvement in their temperment, etc.
