Praise from Veterinarians, Authors & Book Reviewers

“The future is upon us and this ground-breaking book is a vital cornerstone. In dealing with cancer, our worst illness, this Survival Guide is educational, logical, expansive, embracing, honest and so needed.”
Dr. Marty Goldstein, DVM
Holistic veterinarian and Host, Ask Martha Stewart’s Vet on Sirius Radio

“The message of this book jumps off the written page and into the heart of every reader, and will become the at home bible for cancer care of dogs. The authors have given you a sensible and systematic approach that practicing veterinarians will cherish. I found the book inspiring and, clearly, it will become part of my daily approach to cancer therapy for my own patients.”
Dr. Robert B. Cohen, VMD
Bay Street Animal Hospital, New York

“I wish that I had had The Dog Cancer Survival Guide when my dearly beloved Flat-coated Retriever, Odin, contracted cancer. It would have provided me alternative courses of action, as well as some well needed “reality checks” which were not available from conversations with my veterinarian. It should be on every dog owner’s book shelf–just in case…”
Dr. Stanley Coren, PhD, FRSC
author of many books, including Born to Bark

“A comprehensive guide that distills both alternative and allopathic cancer treatments in dogs…With the overwhelming amount of conflicting information about cancer prevention and treatment, this book provides a pet owner with an easy to follow approach to one of the most serious diseases in animals.”
Dr. Barbara Royal, DVM
The Royal Treatment Veterinary Center, Oprah Winfrey’s Chicago veterinarian

“Picking up The Dog Cancer Survival Guide is anything but a downer: it’s an ’empowerer.’ It will make you feel like the best medical advocate for your dog. It covers canine cancer topics to an unprecedented depth and breadth from emotional coping strategies to prevention-in plain English.Read this book, and you will understand cancer stages, treatment options, and types, and much more. If you have just had the dreaded news, pick up a copy and it will guide the decisions your dog trusts you to make.”

This review is from: The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog’s Life Quality and Longevity (Paperback)

If you are looking at this book, chances are you are facing the devastating news that your beloved canine has cancer. I was there once, too, and thank heavens I was led to the 1st edition of this book. *Even if your dog does NOT have cancer, this is STILL a book every dog lover should own.* I was curious about how the 2nd edition would be different — sure, a lot of information is the same, but it is extremely well organized with creative “sidebar symbols” which make the book a bit easier to navigate (and believe me, you’ll read it over & over, since it is such a powerful resource). Cancer affects dogs just as it affects people, and the section on “What You Should Know About Dog Cancer” has a lot of info that applies to people, too. Another strength of the book is that it promotes “Full Spectrum Cancer Care”, including insights about allopathic (traditional) treatments (with significant input from a vet oncologist) as well as valuable info about complimentary (alternative) treatments. There is no doubt that this book contains information your vet, no matter how accomplished, will simply not know about (who can know everything about every veterinary condition?, which is why you need this info from Dr. Dressler!).

If you are lucky enough to be looking at this book because you are simply interested in keeping your canine as healthy & hopefully cancer-free as possible, you will feel bolstered by new details about diet, nutrition, and supplements. I got this book because one of my dogs had cancer, but ALL my dogs will benefit from the education I’ve received about dog food, the immune system and end-of-life care.

I have shown this latest edition to some friends and relatives and all found it hard to put the book down (but I made them do it because I will not part with my copy). This book is easy to read & understand, but best of all, it will give you comfort, courage, strength & proven tools with which to better love your dog!

A “Must Have” Reference book for dog owners, August 29, 2011
This review is from: The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog’s Life Quality and Longevity (Paperback)

In my years as a Veterinary Technician, I have seen the pain and suffering that cancer caused in our canine patients. And also would see the fear and uncertainty in the eyes and hearts of their owners. And while it was my job to help both the patients and owners, it wasn’t until I faced the dreaded cancer in my own fur baby that I realized I too needed more information on how to fight cancer and in particular, Mast Cell Carcinoma. I was feeling overwhelmed and very much in the dark as to what would be the best way to treat and help Lucy, what hope was there, and what more could be done to combat this killer. That is when I got Dr. Dressler’s first book, “The Coping Guide”, and then his first edition of “The Dog Cancer survival guide” . Armed with these two great books, I took on the challenge and did not feel so lost or alone. By following Dr. Dressler’s suggestions on supplements, and diet, and also using his cancer support supplement – Apocaps, I felt that I am giving Lucy a much better chance to survive than with just the conventional treatments at hand. That was two and one half years ago and our Lucy is still doing well and has remained in remission. And now with this newest edition of Dr. Dressler’s book, the average pet owner has even more information to help them fight and win the battle.

Don’t wait to get this book as knowing what to do before you are faced with cancer is the best approach. The layout of the book is great with chapters on the various types of cancers, conventional and alternative treatments, supplements, preventions, etc. Tragically at one point or another everyone will eventually know someone or be that someone who will need the information within this book. I keep this new edition close at hand for quick reference whenever needed.

A Must-Have for All Dog Guardians, September 23, 2011
By 
Jerry (Tripawds.com) – See all my reviews

This review is from: The Dog Cancer Survival Guide: Full Spectrum Treatments to Optimize Your Dog’s Life Quality and Longevity (Paperback)

As founders of Tripawds.com, the world’s largest community for canine amputees (most of whom are battling bone cancers) since 2006, we’ve reviewed many different books about canine cancer. Dr. Dressler and Dr. Ettinger’s book, the Dog Cancer Survival Guide, is absolutely the most informative, comprehensive and useful book that we’ve seen.

The sad fact is, dog cancer is the number one disease killer for canines. Until there is a cure, we as pet guardians must serve as our dog’s #1 health advocate. Whether or not our dog currently has cancer, this book is a must-have for us all.

Dr. Dressler’s first edition of “The Dog Cancer Survival Guide” has been one of our most highly-recommended reading materials since it was first published a few years ago. The newest edition is even better and more comprehensive.

In a nutshell, here’s why we think everyone with a dog should read this book. You’ll learn:

* Why and how you should cope with your own emotions before embarking on your canine cancer research

* The latest discoveries about cancer’s origins, treatments and cures, all written in an easy-to-understand format for the layperson

* All of the most promising holistic therapies that are proving helpful in treating dog cancer

* How to talk to veterinary professionals, friends and family about your treatment choices and what you’re experiencing

* When to make end of life decisions and how to cope with grief

This 400+ page textbook is jam packed with the latest information about conventional treatments and helpful holistic therapies that anyone with any budget can pursue. You’ll get a comprehensive description of different dog cancers and related treatments, as well as a thorough appendix filled with information about published dog cancer studies you can share with your veterinarian.

Dog Cancer Survival Guide’s information is grounded in reality and doesn’t make any promises that it will cure your dog’s cancer. But Dressler’s strong sense of empathy and wisdom extends a guiding hand to readers that’s so desperately needed when faced with canine cancer. You’ll feel empowered, hopeful, grounded in reality and ready to face whatever comes next with the same Zen attitude as your canine hero.

A big shout out goes to both docs for giving pawrents the layperson’s first authoritative, empathetic and hopeful tool available for coping with canine cancer. Get this book today.

Sincerely,

Rene Agredano & Jim Nelson

Dr. Earl Mindell’s Nutrition and Health for Dogs

Dr. Earl Mindell’s Nutrition and Health for Dogs

In this updated second edition of “Dr.Earl Mindell’s Nutrition and Health for Dogs,” the renowned author of “The Vitamin Bible” and his coauthor, Elizabeth Renaghan, focus on how a dog’s body functions nutritionally. They point out that, overall, a dog’s body functions much the same as a human’s body and has similar nutritional requirements. Although some canine needs differ from people’s, dogs also thrive on good nutrition, exercise, clean water, and love-and for optimal health, specific foods and vitamin/mineral supplements. The authors discuss easy, flexible, and affordable ways to keep one’s dog healthy, and elaborate on the different nutritonal requirements of different breeds. They explain why each nutrient discussed is needed, and recommend size-appropriate amounts of them for dogs ranging from small to giant. “Dr. Earl Mindell’s Nutrition and Health for Dogs” is devided into seven informative parts. Part One is all about creating optimum nutrition for one’s dog. In the parts that follow, the authors talk about why it is important to keep a dog’s immune system healthy; they devote a section to natural flea control, and another to homeopathy, an increasingly popular, and highly effective, therapy for dogs; they delve into the five most common dog diseases, and other common canine ailments, and finally, they give an alphabetical, breed-specific listing of potential health problems for dogs. This manual is an important alternative to the multi-million-dollar dog-food industry, which wants people to believe that a dog is happiest when receiving the exact same foods day after day. Nothing could be further from the truth. Nutritional variety is every bit as important for a dog as it is for a dog’s owner, and dogs, lke people, thirve on a mix of fresh foods including frutis and vegetables.

Pretty good but lacks in precision on a few minor points and one major, August 12, 2009
By 
S. Smith (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

This review is from: Dr. Earl Mindell’s Nutrition and Health for Dogs (Paperback)

I really enjoyed this book for the most part as it offers very SPECIFIC information regarding vitamin and mineral supplementation, not just vague “rules of thumb.” He actually gives you dosages and explains in non-medical language what the vitamins do, why they’re important, and in which foods many can be found. Herein lies my first major cause for alarm: he suggests red grapes as a nutritional form of the trace mineral selenium (p.39)– this is a potentially deadly recommendation as grapes and raisins are toxic to dogs. Dogs who ingest grapes or raisins can develop acute kidney failure and in many cases die. Please do some verifying online and with your veterinarian before taking this recommendation from the book and if in doubt, err on the side of caution and avoid grape products.

The second gripe I have is in regards to his discussion of stress in puppies and adult dogs. This topic is breached around p. 60 and is in reference to how emotional stress can weaken the immune system. While Mindell’s observations are certainly valid from the physical standpoint, he neglects the long-term behavioral implications of his recommendation for owners to attempt to eliminate their dog’s stressors altogether or treat a hyperactive dog with natural remedies such as B-complex, Valarian, kava, and magnesium. Another approach that isn’t mentioned is to introduce stressful situations, such as riding in the car or meeting a new dog, in a controlled, proactive way (potentially with the assistance of a dog trainer). A person doesn’t do their dog any favors by sheltering them from environmental stressors because it’s almost inevitable that the dog will come face to face with the stressor eventually. Starting from puppyhood a dog should be taught how to approach and deal with unfamiliar (and thus stressful) situations. A dog who is not socialized with uncomfortable sounds, sights, and sensations early on is likely to become MORE fearful of these things later in life and potentially lash out in an aggressive manner. I would have liked to have seen a broader approach to dealing with this topic since it deals directly with animal behavior.

It should also be noted that he advocates a raw diet and minimal vaccinations. For those who don’t align with that camp, be forewarned! In all, I think I’m still on-board with Dr. Mindell, but he definitely shook my confidence with that grape recommendation.

Great Summer Read, August 11, 2011
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Walk a Hound, Lose a Pound: How You and Your Dog Can Lose Weight, Stay Fit, and Have Fun Together (New Directions in the Human-Animal Bond Series) (Perfect Paperback)

As a dog owner, and walker, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book (purchased on Amazon by the way!), about the benefits of something I took for granted!

The content is a great exploration of how we can enjoy better health in ways that are enjoyable and actually add to our quality-of-life. After reviewing the activity chart, I enjoyed “counting” my steps to see where I fell on the activity levels each day. I later learned from a friend that Weight Watchers now incorporates walking as an exchange value for extra food points in their new program, which simply reinforces the benefits of this activity. In addition, the book is a useful reference for a variety of related activities, organizations and groups that promote better health for walkers and their dogs. Overall, it was a great summer read.

Excellent book that covers all areas of having a healthy dog!, February 4, 2006
By 
Denise Bonds (Bay Area California) – See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
  

This review is from: The Holistic Dog Book: Canine Care for the 21st Century (Paperback)

I would consider this a very strong complimenting book to go with Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats.

This truly is a “Holistic” book, encompassing all areas of sharing your life with a dog. Denise Flaim delves into topics like nutrition, training, communication, vaccinations, allergies, Traditional Chinese Medicine, cancer and “finding the perfect vet” (to name a few). This book is also crammed pack full of herbal remedies and essential oil healing therapies. And at the same time, I find her writing style to be friendly and encouraging–not judgemental of the reader for picking one thing over another. And at the same time, encouraging the reader to find the “right balance” for you and your canine companion.

I do not plan to practice healing through herbal and essential oil therapies on my own, but I do plan to seek out a holistic vet who will offer me these options for treating conditions and ailments of our canine friend.

After a long and courageous fight, our Chihuahua finally went to eternal rest one week ago today. During his 13 years, he was consistently put on drugs like cortisone, prednisone and antibiotics to relieve him of symptoms like skin allergies, anal gland problems, nasal congestion, etc. All of which finally manifested into Inflammatory Brain Disease. I am finally realizing that I probably could have prevented most if not all this by providing a more nutritious diet. I believe in the philosophy that symptoms are just what we see on the surface of a more fundamental problem and by using drugs like these to provide temporary comfort does not always address the root cause.

I borrowed this book from my library, but now after reading it cover-to-cover, I will purchase a copy to go along with Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats. Between these two books, and a partner relationship with a good holistic vet, I am better prepared to make decisions about our companion’s health and happiness.

Brilliantly done! Not since Dr. Pitcarin’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats has there been a more concise and comprehensive book on holistic health care for our companion animals. Page after page is written with enthusiasm and true understanding of what holistic health care is all about. Ms. Flaim’s book is very well researched and packed with valuable information from the nation’s leading experts. If you have never used holistic care or you have done so for years there is information in this book for you.

By 
nic (los angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This review is from: The Holistic Dog Book: Canine Care for the 21st Century (Paperback)

this is a great book for someone who is interested in alternative medicine, but knows little about it (like me). before I purchased this book I had purchased another book about cat & dog homeopathy that while very comprehensive, was not very easy to understand. this book however, very clearly and concisely explains the “who, what, when, where, and how” of not only homeopathy, but also alternatives including (but not limited to): herbology, aromatherapy, chinese medicine, accupuncture, etc. The book takes the approach of trying to convince someone slightly skeptical (again, like myself) of the merit and value of these therapies, and it does a very good job! in addtion to those topics it also covers nutrition and general health (lightly), and tackles everything with a good dose of common sense. very informative, and well written. highly recommended!

The Health Benefits of Dog Walking for People and Pets: Evidence and Case Studies (New Directions in the Human-Animal Bond Series)

The Health Benefits of Dog Walking for People and Pets: Evidence and Case Studies (New Directions in the Human-Animal Bond Series)

Obesity is a national epidemic in the United States. It is estimated that by 2018 the cost of treating weight-related illnesses will double to almost 0 billion a year, while a 2010 report by the US Surgeon General estimates that two-thirds of American adults and almost one in three children are now overweight or obese. This volume originated in a special 2009 symposium funded in part by a grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and sponsorship from Mars Waltham® on how human-animal interaction may help fight obesity across the lifespan. The authors present scientific evidence about the benefits of dog walking for improving human and animal health, and case studies of programs that are using this powerful expression of the human-animal bond to combat obesity. The volume is especially valuable as a sourcebook of evidence-based studies for public health professionals treating overweight humans and veterinarians treating obese dogs.

My children begged and begged for a dog and I decided to cave in and buy a puppy for them last Christmas. I was shocked by the cost of vaccinations, treatment, toys, and dog food. My veterinarian had this book in her office and suggested that we purchase a copy. I was skeptical about preparing my dog food because I assumed it would be time consuming and may not offer all of the nutrients that a growing puppy needs. The book was inexpensive and I am very happy we purchased it because now I can cook easy, healthy meals for the puppy while provide all of the essential nutritional elements required for growth and development.

A bible for dog owners, present and future, January 18, 2004
This review is from: Dogs: The Ultimate Care Guide: Good Health, Loving Care, Maximum Longevity (Paperback)

As a first time puppy owner of an Old English Sheep Dog, I bought this book to help me through the mystifying world (to me) of dog care, and absolutely loved it.

The guide is by far the most comprehensive, yet easy to read, with easy to follow instructions of many books that I have seen out there, some of which I own. Each topic is covered in about 2 pages, yet they contain enough detail and handy advice for the new dog owner to feel confident about his or her new relationship. Building that confidence leads to a well-behaved, confident pet, and the tremendous pleasure of ownership of another being.

The guide is divided into several useful sections as follows:

1. Getting acquainted – what kind of dog should you get? Coverage on the top 50 breeds in the US (although unfortunately my lovely puppy wasn’t in it). How to deal with new puppy, how to read your dog’s body language.

2. Training – everything from house-training your puppy, through to basic and advanced training. It also has a very useful section on correcting unwanted behavior such as chasing cares, digging, anxiety and much more.

3. Essential care – what you need to do to keep your dog fit and healthy. What kinds of toys to buy, whether to leave your pet in or out, and traveling with your dog.

4. Food – Nutrition, water, eating problems, snacks and special diets.

5. Health watch – preventing sickness and common problems, choosing a vet, neutering, breeding/birthing and caring for older dogs.

6. Easing common complaints – what to do about bad breath, bloating, sunburn and ticks, and many other quirks like flatulence and drooling.

7. First aid – in case your dog (I hope it never happens to you) needs emergency care.

8. Looking good – grooming and washing your dog.

These useful and crucial topics are interspersed with dialog boxes (Paws for Thought) that address questions you’ve thought about but never expected to get an answer on, such as “do dogs fake being hurt?” (p.300), or “why do dogs stick their heads out of car windows?” (p.202),

The book, not surprisingly, boasts contributors ranging from veterinarians, trainers, groomers and other animal experts.

So far, everything I have needed to know, or any questions I had about my dog, has been in this book. It’s the first place I look to for answers. In short, this amazing book has been like a bible for me to raise my new puppy (and how to deal with all that long shaggy hair!). I highly recommend it for any present, new or future dog owner.

This review is from: Dogs: The Ultimate Care Guide: Good Health, Loving Care, Maximum Longevity (Paperback)

I’ve been a dog owner for my whole life. Every one of my dogs has gone through at least basic obedience. I found the information on behavior to be light, general and based on common sense. Probably a good starting place for a beginner. Bot if you’ve had a bunch of dogs, like people they are all very different. What floats one dog’s boat does nothing for the next one. I was hoping for more insight on curbing bad dog behavior.

This review is from: Dogs: The Ultimate Care Guide: Good Health, Loving Care, Maximum Longevity (Paperback)

This book is pretty conventional but it is well written and informative, and it has a definite place in all dog-lovers library. I also like that it has a lot of pictures which makes it easy and fun to read.

It would make a great gift for someone who is thinking about getting a dog and to all the new dog owners.

I would recommend this book TOGETHER with “The Whole Dog Journal’s Guidebook to Dog and Puppy Care and Training”. These 2 make a perfect package: whatever one is missing, the other has!

Food Can Add Years, Even to Dogs in Trouble, March 14, 2011
This review is from: The Dog Cancer Diet (Kindle Edition)

People have learned that diet plays an integral role in our health. Why have we been so slow to realize the same is true of our 4-legged little ones? Here, Dr. Demian Dressler explores the nature of how food affects dogs and especially how we can administer food wisely when our dogs get cancer. We not only are implementing this diet for one of our troubled guys but we’re just going to move to this kind of food in general for all of them, young and old. Grains and sugars are huge problems for the canines. (They are for people many times too; the FDA’s Food Pyramid has caused a lot of problems.)

Dr. Dressler goes into detail and uses strong evidence to support everything he teaches here. The food we feed our dogs may or may not CAUSE problems such as cancer (sometimes it probably does) but it sure can exacerbate and perhaps bring on the end far earlier than it has to come. You owe it to your dog to learn this and our love for animals was enough for us to write this review to encourage YOU to get The Dog Cancer Diet.

Thank you Dr. Dressler!, March 14, 2011
This review is from: The Dog Cancer Diet (Kindle Edition)

Thank you Dr. Dressler for your detailed study about how to extend our dog’s life through the food she eats. We had been moving toward an immune-boosting diet for ourselves and your book taught us how to help Sally. She’s not out of the woods yet but she is responding nicely and seems to LOVE the food we now give her. One of the primary reasons we got your book was due to the extensive references in back. Our cousin had one and when we saw how well documented your findings were, we knew we were not doing Sally justice if we didn’t see what you had to say. We’ll keep you posted but she is doing better.

Sound Ideas That Really Work!, March 11, 2011
This review is from: The Dog Cancer Diet (Kindle Edition)

If only I would have learned of Dr. Dressler’s Dog Cancer Diet book a few years ago. I have an old yellow lab who is riddled with cancerous tumors and we know he doesn’t have long left. Even so, to make his final months happier and healthier I’ve started him on the Dog Cancer Diet and have put my younger, healthy dog on it to avoid future problems.

We don’t often think about the foods we give our dogs, but so many of them simply aren’t good and may cause various health problems, allergies, and even cancer. By boosting a dog’s immune system, and feeding them beneficial foods and supplements it can go a long way in protecting their health and possibly avoiding cancer in the long run. For dogs who already have cancer, this book could add on some happier quality time and have your dog feeling much better.

I just started my dog on the krill oil, Apocaps, and healthier foods and he’s already doing much better. He’s running around and playing where before, I thought he would leave us at any moment!

    Your Dog Needs This Book!, September 27, 2003
    By 
    “tashidelek” (Chicago, Illinois United States) – See all my reviews

    This review is from: The Complete Holistic Dog Book: Home Health Care for Our Canine Companions (Paperback)

    When I saw the word "complete" in the title, I thought the
    publisher was probably stretching the truth…but now that I’ve read it I think the title does not go far enough in describing it. This book covers alot more than health care. For instance, under caring for an older dog, the tips are practical, simple, and have nothing to do with medicine or illness. Simple things like buying the dog a softer bed. Life style changes that may not cure, as somethings cannot be, but can make your dog
    alot happier.

    Dog care books are usually either written by a vet, who takes the linear Western medicine approach, or a holistic practianer who never sees the need to darken a doctor’s office. This book is written in a partnership between a vet and a holistic person and the book shows the wisdom of both and suggests when and how to use either one or both of the approaches. Good common sense abounds. And always practical information. In a section on diabetes the authors list the dog breeds most likely to be susceptible. If you have one of these breeds it may make recognizing the signs easier. They do this for most of the diseases they discuss.

    And they discuss alot more. Prevention, diet, homeopathy, herbs, TCM. bodywork, alternative therapies and conventional medicine, and more. It’s a fat book packed with info.

    If you have a dog, you need this book….though in truth I think alot of what they say can be applied to any animal, including the human.

    The one book I reference consistently, March 9, 2006
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: The Complete Holistic Dog Book: Home Health Care for Our Canine Companions (Paperback)

    I have a variety of books on health for dogs, which I reference often. I noticed lately, however, that I’ve gone to this book first over and over and often I don’t need to look at any of my other books. I usually cross reference material, but I’ve found valididated information from several other sources in this book so often that I save myself the trouble and just reference this book now.

    Rarely do I find a “the only book you’ll need” in any book, but this one definitely has it all, and the information is not extreme. The authors recognize balance, recognize that there are a variety of methods to attack a problem, and they present each method thoroughly and non-judgmentally.

    For example, if a dog is vomiting and has nausea, they first differentiate between acute and chronic. If acute, they first give information on nutritional support, then homeopathy, then herbs, then accupressure and finally other methods including flower essences and considering addressing the dog’s emotional state. If chronic, they are just as thorough but give other paths to follow in trying to treat the dog’s vomiting.

    In addition to concrete suggestions for treating many health problems, very clear and professionally drawn illustrations abound throughout the book. In the section for vomiting, one drawing shows the dog’s digestive tract and another the accupressure points for the digestive tract. When referring to the illustration in the text, the authors also reference corresponding charts and additional illustrations in another part of the book (and give page numbers!) that will further explain information regarding that particular illustration, such as finding the exact meridian point on the dog.

    The treatments the authors focus on in the book include diet, homeopathy, herbs, accupressure, acupuncture, TCM, bodywork, and energy medicine. The authors touch on a few other areas of therapy but they focus primarily on the topics just mentioned.

    I found the illustrations to be extremely valuable. They are peppered throughout the book showing parts of the dog that are relevant to the corresponding text. The illustrations aren’t too detailed; they have just enough to explain. They’re clear, concise, and easy to understand.

    Overall, this is the best comprehensive book on holistic dog care on my shelf. I’m gradually getting rid of the others because they don’t compare at all to the accurately named, “The Complete Holistic Dog Book.”

    A Skeptic’s Reaction, November 10, 2003
    By 
    Janet Starr (Hailey, Idaho) – See all my reviews

    This review is from: The Complete Holistic Dog Book: Home Health Care for Our Canine Companions (Paperback)

    I sat down with this book intending to go through it in a “first time kind of glance through” way and ended up reading it for four hours – non stop.

    I started with the homeopathy section which had an excellent discussion on how the remedies are made and used. I am a novice in this area of medicine but found the explanations clear, concise, and informative.

    I then turned to the puppy section – and found a wealth of valuable information on the importance of puppy socialization – how exposing my puppy to lots of different people, dogs and places, (after their vaccination series is complete, of course!), helps him learn manners, gives him confidence, and allows me the luxury and joy of taking him with me to many places without having to worry about his behavior. The book also discusses how to select a good and compassionate trainer.

    There is a section on “Letting Go” – always a difficult and painful part of sharing one’s life with an animal. I found the author’s advice personal and heartfelt.

    The chapters on new vaccination protocols and nutrition are informative and complete. Although the two authors recommend a homemade diet, they also tell the reader how to select a high quality commercial diet, as well.

    I appreciate the author’s balanced view and the fact that they explain the “why” of things – something which is often lacking in many books. Excellent.

    The book is loaded with helpful tables and graphs and personal stories. In addition, there are great photos of “Found Dogs” sprinkled throughout the book.

    It is obvious these two authors love their topic and want to improve the lives of puppies, dogs, and their people. I will recommend it highly.
