Product Description

From Amazon

A previously published bestselling guide to alternative medicine for both cats and dogs, this newly updated version focuses on felines alone and incorporates the most recent findings in holistic veterinary medicine. Drawing on the extensive experience of many American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association members, author Pat Lazarus offers invaluable information on herbology, acupressure, chiropractic care, vitamins, and diet--all treatments that should be discussed with one's vet before being administered--as well as a useful directory to holistic veterinarians across the United States. Informative sidebars, inspiring case histories, and Lazarus's straightforward approach make Keep Your Cat Healthy the Natural Way the perfect book for owners interested in caring for their cats naturally.

From Library Journal

Drawing on the expertise of veterinarians with the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, this book focuses on holistic ways to prevent disorders, such as cancer, generally considered inevitable. Natural therapies differ from traditional drug and surgery treatments in three ways: they tend not to have the negative side effects of drugs, they rebuild the total health of the body, and they are often less expensive. The most important natural therapy is a preventive diet, and Lazarus (Keep Your Pet Healthy the Natural Way, 1986) presents steps for shifting from "fake" commercial foods to raw meat, eggs, grains, and vegetables. Elsewhere, he covers natural remedies and alternative therapies. A useful state-by-state list of holistic veterinarians is included. This work, together with Richard Pitcairn's Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats (Rodale, 1995), makes a strong contribution to collections on holistic pet care.?Eva Lautemann, Georgia Perimeter Coll.

Format: Paperback
This is the only health and/or nutrition book I've read cover to cover. The topics are fascinating, and the writing style engaging.
Lazarus provides general information about feline nutrition (or lack thereof) and diet suggestions, as well as sections dedicated to a variety of feline medical problems and both their standard and holistic treatments. She cites numerous holistic veterinarians, but this is not a tirade against conventional medicine. It does offer hope through alternative solutions.

HASH(0xa56aa06c) out of 5 stars Good information if your cat is chronically sick. April 26 2009
By Art Grrrl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's all about diet. Feeding house cats what Real Cats eat -- raw meat. This book saved my cat from living at the vet. I had a very sick cat, now I've got a very playful one. If you're at your wits end, take a look at this book.

HASH(0xa56a4db0) out of 5 stars Books like this could have saved my cat May 26 2013
By cm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was one of my first when I became interested in learning about alternative medicine, after my first cat died from the recommended vaccination program that we had been led to believe would prevent disease. It remains one of my favorites, and I think I would recommend it first to anyone who is fairly new to natural diets / therapy. It is a very good introduction to all of the topics, and the first part is complete enough to start following from this book alone in most cases (part two understandably is more introductory since it covers diseases). I think the stories relating to the topics make the book more engaging, and when it is very new to a person it makes it more believable than books just listing herbs or cures with no explanation, for example. The writing is not preachy to where it may scare potential new readers, it is neither complicated like a textbook, nor dumbed-down like several nonfiction books being printed, so you do get your money's worth from this one, I believe.

HASH(0xa59d1240) out of 5 stars This is a great book for advice on how to keep your cat ... April 5 2015
By Carol N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for advice on how to keep your cat healthy with proper diet. It has made me aware of the importance of nutrition for cats, and fortunately, we have a great Pet Food Store nearby (Pet Food Express), where I can buy well prepared cat food. My attempt to cook our cats chicken livers did not meet up with their expectations.
