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.
