Product Description

Review

“A must-have for pet owners interested in a natural lifestyle for their pets.” ―Amazon.com

“Pets have never had it so good!” ―Michael W. Fox, former vice president of the Humane Society

“For many of my clients, Dr. Pitcairn's book is their trusted holistic health guide for their canine and feline companions needs, full of practical pointers for the concerned caregiver"a must read for those embarking on the worthwhile journey towards restoration of their pets' health and happiness. This new edition is a must-have for the pet care library.” ―David Evans, DVM, CVH, Natural Care Clinic for Pets

“Would you like your dog and cat to live a longer healthier life? This easy to use and well researched book is a must for you. Every one of my holistic clients has Dr. Pitcairn's book and many have told me how frequently they read it for treatment of minor problems, nutritional information and how to make lifestyle choices to improve health for themselves, their animals and our planet.” ―Dr. Christina Chambreau, Homeopathic Veterinarian and author of the Healthy Animal's Journal

“The third edition of this "landmark" text is welcome, and will take up space on my bookshelf, as well as the bookshelves of many of my colleagues and clients.” ―Carvel G. Tiekert, DVM, Founder, American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association

“Dr. Richard Pitcairn again demonstrates why he is so respected in his field. This book should be required reading for anyone seeking true, lasting health for their animals and will continue to be a must-read for my clients.” ―Larry A. Bernstein, VMD

“I anticipated that this 3rd edition would be a thorough and thoughtfully-written guide to natural health care for animals, packed full of useful information and practical tips. My expectations were exceeded! Dr. Pitcairn has a wonderful way of making both basic principles and complex topics fresh and reader-friendly, all the while gently raising questions that encourage thinking and re-thinking conventional "wisdom" in companion animal care. Who should read this book? Those just embarking on the path of natural health for their pets, those who have been on this path for years, and every holistically-minded veterinarian who wants to understand root causes of disease and expand his or her repertoire of treatments that truly support and help restore health. Although I have used and recommended the earlier edition of this book in my practice for years, I plan to make this new edition required reading for my clients!” ―Lynn S. Peck, DVM, MS Holistic veterinarian and researcher

“Once again Dr. Pitcairn has given animal caretakers the definitive how-to for a healthier, more natural and holistic approach to animal health. This up-dated edition, in his easy-to-read, story-telling style, has added information on diet and vaccinations based on recent research. The results achieved in animal well-being by incorporating the dietary, herbal and homeopathic information provided in previous editions have spoken for themselves. The new information contained in this new edition will raise the quality of our companion animal health just that much higher.” ―Dr. Kimberly Henneman, DVM

About the Author

helped me save lots of money!! i have used the first aid, the diets, the food receipies, the diagnoses and the treatments this book has it all. It has saved me tons on vet bills on items that are simple to do and easy to fix such as upset tummy and cuts and scrapes. Treating the small items is the cost saver, of course if it persists or shows signs of something more serious i go to the vet.

I have been using this book for years, starting with a new puppy 10 years ago. I am now raising another happy, healthy puppy with Dr. Pitcairn's Healthy Powder and Growth Diet. My vet fully approves. I recently purchased a second copy of this book to send to my nephew across the country because he recently got a new puppy. He is very pleased with the gift. You would keep this book handy as a lifelong health reference for your dog or cat at any age.

I have used recipes in this book for my pets especially the healthy powder which you add to your pets food. It also helped me when I had a dog dealing with cancer and allergies. I highly recommend to pet owners.

By A Customer on April 2 2006
Format: Paperback
I firt learned about Dr.Pitcairn's when my Rottweiller had arthritis. Simply following some of the recipes included and giving him some of the suppliments suggested and my old boy's coat became soft and shiny as a puppy's. I am convinced that the recipes included in this book improved my dog's final months. It was discovered through different x-ray angle that he was limping because of a cancerous tumour. I now have a new pup, and everyone is amazed at how soft his fur is. He is a happy healthy dog, thanks in large part, to supplimenting his food with the recipes. I wouldn't follow ALL of Pitcairn's advice, though, (like not giving your dog vaccinations), but the reasoning given do give us something to think about. The homeopathic treatments explained should compliment traditional treatment well.

I have purchased about 20 of these books over the years for clients and friends. Every pet owner MUST read this book if only the section on pet food and vaccinations. Dr. Pitcairn is a pioneer in the filed of pet health

This book is full of interesting and useful information for dog and cat lovers like myself. Was disappointed not to find any reference to a condition my dog had in 2012 called "geriatric vestibular syndrome". She is over it now but it has been known to reoccur and it would be helpful to know more about this condition which can occur in older dogs.
