Product Description

From Library Journal

The popularity of homeopathic medicine has found its way into veterinary practice, and many horse owners are using alternative techniques to keep their animals healthy without relying on pharmaceuticals. Brennan (The Natural Dog) is a competitive dressage rider and a veterinarian who runs a holistic practice in Atlanta. She uses a variety of treatments, including acupuncture, chiropractic, herbs, oils, Bach Flower remedies, and nutrition, but she is willing to incorporate more traditional remedies into her practice when necessary. Covered here are horse care basics: stable management, feeding, exercise and conditioning, tack and equipment, and first aid and healthcare. Brennan also presents many case studies from her own practice, often indicating that alternative treatments proved successful where conventional methods had been ineffective. With a thorough index and a handy A-Z guide to common horse ailments, this well-organized book will be of interest to all horse owners, especially those seeking a more natural approach to healthcare.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Deborah N. Gray on Sept. 22 2001
Format: Hardcover
This comprehensive volume addresses dozens of concerns for the horse owner, covering traditional and alternative health practices. The book is very complete in covering the health care options in two sections.The first part dealing with health care is an overview of traditional and holistic options. The final section of the volume is a comprehensive listing (with photos) of typical horse ailments with specific recommendations for each one. The entire book is written in a style easily understandable by the novice, but not too simplistic for the experienced horse owner. Photos and very complete appendices round out the coverage for this topic. Additionally, Brennan includes a comprehensive horse management section which is equally impressive in its scope, covering topics such as diet, grooming, tack and trailering.This book is truly a "must have" for the concerned horse owner.

Great overview of what can be done for your horse. June 8 2007
By Jeanne M. Mahoney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book serves as a wonderful reference for the health of my equines. It gives very descriptive things that can be done. Recently when my warmblood foundered, I found the suggestions very helpful and empowering. I got to implement some of them right away and therefore made my girl more comfortable in this hard situation. I highly recommend this book as it takes the mystery out of many different approaches of equine care and gives one the opportunity to make informed, well thought out choices.

Happy for the paperback Jan. 20 2007
By Sally Justice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I own the hardback edition of this book and am very pleased the paperback edition has arrived. Sent it to a good friend looking for the pressure points of the horse, which Mary does a great job of showing in the sketches provided. This is the best alternative medicine book I have found for the horse.

For The Proactive Horse Owner March 16 2009
By Pamela DeMuth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What a dynamically different equine health care reference this book is! I have been fortunate enough to have Dr. Brennan care for my horses over the years so I have much faith in her knowledge and words. Her book explains alternative veterinary practices (which crosses over to help explain some of these practices for humans as well). She explains acupuncture, acupressure, aromatherapy, Bach flower remedies, herbs, homeopathy, lasers, magnetic therapy, and massage. It also contains helpful sections on accupressure that the lay person can personally perform. My copy was worth a wait.
