5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book.
Love it! Written in terms the average person can understand. Recipes are simple and easy once you buy all the core ingredients. Great book to help you give your furry friends the best care and understanding so they have a long healthy life.

3.0 out of 5 stars useful overall source book for your dog
this book is decent in that it covers a lot of information. if you're looking for info on the overall health of a dog, this isn't bad. but if your looking for info on dog diets, then i would choose another book. the info on feeding/diets was very confusing for me, and i think for someone who's new to the idea of feeding raw or homecooked, this isn't what you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent source for natural and holistic nutrition!, Sept. 5 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats (Paperback)
When my seven-year old dog, Sierra, developed an autoimmune disorder (megaesophagus), I was hurt, angry, upset, and all the other emotions you must go through with illness. Sierra was my best friend, and now she was terribly ill. After over $1,000 in diagnostic testing and Western medicine, I turned to a homeopathic vet, who gave me a few recipes out of this wonderful book. Even though Sierra had much difficulty swallowing and keeping foods down, the high-quality nutrients I was giving her by following these diets helped her to remain alert and happy for a few more months. She even gained some weight! Unfortunately, I had to make a terrible decision and sent Sierra on a beautiful journey where I hope she can, once again, eat whatever she wants! But these recipes continue with me, as I have a new pup, and two cats! You probably won't feed your furkids the commercial stuff after you read this book

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lot of Helpful Information Here, Jan. 13 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats (Paperback)
I bought this book about 2 years ago and I am very pleased with it. I started making my own cat food as suggested and I solved a chronic loose stool problem that wasn't even helped with perscription pet food from the vet. The recipes are very detailed and I like that. He really explains exactly what you need to make the food and gives a lot of choices and substitutions. This is the first holistic pet book I would recommed to someone wanting information on holistic pet care. I find it more reliable because it is written by a vet rather than a layperson

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye-opening information for curious pet owners, Jan. 10 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats (Paperback)
Actually it should say "co-habitants" not owners as those
of us with a couple of critters in the household know that
we don't "really" own them....
The book is an excellent resource for anyone who is
interested in getting a different opinion about how to treat
their pets (dogs and cats only) than what we hear from
commercial sources or "average" veterninarians. It not only
approaches every subject related to "pet-keeping" but (my
favorite parts) there are sections on foods (and how to
prepare healthy, home-made meals in minutes). Very detailed on
illnesses and injuries (hope never to use that information..).
Perfect for people who believe in (or at least are willing to
try) a holistic approach. I just wish they would write a
book that would keep me as healthy as my pets as easily...

4.0 out of 5 stars The best book to start with for Natural Pet Care, Aug. 1 1996
By A Customer
This review is from: Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats (Paperback)
Ok, Ok, if it's the best book, why only an 8? Because once
you read this book you will want more. There's only so
much you can fit in one book but the Pitcairns have managed
to give a very readable and very usable introduction to
the many options the pet owner has in natural pet care. The
recipes and feeding advice alone make it worth adding it to
your bookshelf. When people ask me about natural pet care,
this is ALWAYS the first book I recommend.
