Shor's negative Library Journal review of this book cannot be taken seriously. A conventional vet, Shor obviously has a vested interest in dog owners not empowering themselves with a holistic approach to care. His criticisms are unfounded. Nux vomica, which Shor fearfully labels as strychinine is a homeopathic remedy that contains no measurable amount of the poison. His reluctance to feed dogs raw meat ignores the fact that dogs in nature consume raw meat, including carrion, bacteria and all. Let's not even consider what goes into most commercial dog foods. His final example of a contradictory statement concerning not bathing dogs yet allowing them to swim doesn't point out a contradiction at all: the last time I checked, dogs swim in water while they are bathed with water plus soap and/or chemicals that strip their hair of its natural oils.

As the proud owner of a fourteen year old poodle named Murphy and a roaming tom-cat named Spencer, I appreciate a book with a holistic approach toward animal care. As with all older pets, my dog Murphy has experienced his fair share of medical problems and I don't like inundating him with prescription medication on a regular basis. The Natural Dog gives me a variety of natural and safe ways to treat Murphy's ailments, and provides methods to keep him healthy! This book is informative and entertaining, providing pet owners with an A-Z guide on common dog problems and their natural solutions. The Natural Dog will assist anyone who wishes to become acquainted with holistic medicine for pets.

After Dr. Pitcarin's Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats came a plethora of natural guides for animals. This book followed its predecessor The Natural Cat. This book is an easy to read holistic care guide, of which I always recommend in conjuction with Dr Pitcairn's guide for new dog owners. It is easy to read for the pet owner overhwelmed by the detailed knowledge of Dr Pitcairn's guide. With both books paired together, I feel any dog owner seriously interested in holistic pet care will be highly informed and motivated.

Caring Author, a hands on book that works! April 16 2005
By Harry Stevens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I started reading the Natural Dog about two years ago.

I have a fourteen your old coon hound and he was experiencing

problems associated with aging. I found that the book's chapter on the aging dog is so valuable. I implemented a new diet for my dog, based on the book and my dog now has so much more energy. We take nice long walks every day and he is quite playful. I had brought my dog to a traditional vet a year before and the doctor only recommended surgery for his problems with walking. The book offers caring alternative solutions to dog care that many people just do not know about. Based on the author's suggestions I have given my dog glucosamine, treated his eyes with the herb eurphrasia, and have seen all the positive results the author describes. I love this book and recommend it often to friends. The author writes in an easy manner and her love for dogs is obvious as you turn the pages.

The best for your dog. March 29 2011
By Jsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book; easy to understand with methods that are safer and healthier for your dog. Having experienced a lot of these alternative treatments with my dogs, they have lived longer, healthier lives. I've heard that there will be an updated, online version of this book. Can't wait to see what is new and available for my "family".
