Domestic cats have high cancer rates, chronic disease, and immunodeficiency in spite of increased indoor living, plentiful food, and limited exposure to infectious agents and parasites. This book emphasizes prevention. To prevent disease, we try to make environmental and dietary choices that support the vital energy to the body. Obvious requirements include proper light, fresh air, and clean water as well as exercise, stimulation of the senses, and food that nourishes without harming. But meeting these requirements requires some effort.
If it were a simple choice, many people would choose to treat and care for their pets with natural therapies. Unfortunately, most cat caregivers find the expectations and requirements of natural pet health care fairly imposing. Whole Health for Happy Cats provides the basic information you need to incorporate holistic treatments into your cat’s everyday care, reduce health care costs, and help your cat enjoy a long healthy life.
Whole Health for Happy Cats translates the dry and often-overwhelming scientific data found in other cat care books into everyday language. The easy-to-follow guidelines teach cat caregivers to use holistic remedies at home, including homeopathy, aromatherapy, and flower essences. In addition, sidebars, comparison charts, decision-making guides, and extensive resources make this an easy-to-read and informative book.
