The New Natural Cat : A Complete Guide for Finicky Owners
by Anitra Frazier, Norma Eckroate
This is the single most useful book for cat owners and is written by a lady who is a cat lover and also very experienced in natural cat care. The book explains about natural diets, and gives practical ideas and recipes. She also gives insights into cat behavior, and explains about how to understanding your cats and their behavior. There is also a detailed encyclopedia of ailments and how to treat them naturally. I recommend most of my cat clients purchase and use this book because of the detailed information it contains.
A Heartwarming Look at the Spiritual Bond Between Animals and Humans
by Allen Schoen DVM
This is a wonderful anecdotal book written by a pioneering holistic veterinarian. It is definitely heart warming and moving and a must read for any animal lover. I could not put this book down when I read it, and could relate to many of the moving tales, both happy and sad, which he describes in these true stories. Dr. Schoen is truly an animal lover as well as a veterinarian and this is a very spiritual book and a tribute to animals everywhere.
This book is directed more at humans than pets but is an excellent source book for the Bach Flower Remedies, which treat emotional, mental and physical problems in animals as well as people. The book details the thirty eight flower remedies and explains how to identify them. It is also useful for pets as they have the same emotions and emotional blockages as people, and this is the best book I have found to learn about these gentle healing essences.
The Spiritual Life of Animals and Plants by Laurie Conrad
As a holistic veterinarian, and also as a friend of the illustrator of this wonderful book, as well as being honored to have the special cat on the cover as one of my favorite clients, I was very lucky to receive a copy of this book in the mail. I have to recommend this book because of its amazing content and unique insights. When I received my copy a few weeks ago, I sat down and read it cover to cover and was charmed by the stories and also inspired about how this could help with healing both animals and people, as well as plants. I have recommended it to my clients as I feel it is something that will help bring people and animals to a closer understanding of one another and of the spiritual bond between them, that I see every day in the course of my work. Highly recommended!
NATURAL PET CARE
The Whole Dog and Whole Cat Journals
I highly recommend both of these magazines, which are about holistic care for dogs and cats, and the best ones of their kind available right now. It has useful articles on diet, dog food selection, behavior, holistic treatments and a lot of excellent resources. I have been interviewed several times for articles in these and been very impressed by the authors.
Thank You – and happy reading!
