Writer Amy Shojai has interviewed best vets across the country, such as members of the Holistic Veterinary Health-related Association and noted veterinarian Susan Wynn. Pet homeowners will understand why some vets moved absent from mainstream medicine, how the “Healing Intuition” sales opportunities animals to their very own organic cures, and how substitute therapies actually operate. Readers will find suggestions for treating issues like aggression, fleas, and coronary heart troubles with accupressure, homeopathy, diet, herbs, exercise and traditional house

    Gentle Introduction to Natural Remedies for Pets, August 23, 2000

    Similar in format to Martin Zucker’s “Veterinarians Guide to Natural Remedies for Dogs/Cats,” this book is a worthwhile choice for anyone wanting to take greater responsibility for their animal’s health. Those who have been into natural rearing for a while will not find much new information here, but I recommend it highly to anyone just beginning to get interested in holistic health care for animals.
    The book is divided into three parts. Part one explains the difference between holistic and allopathic health care and explains what to expect when consulting a holistic veterinarian. Part two provides a brief overview of a variety of natural therapies including acupressure, aromatherapy, crystal therapy, massage and therapeutic touch, flower remedies, herbs, and homeopathy. There’s also a chapter on nutrition and while natural homeprepared diets are recommended, not enough details are provided to enable the pet owner to formulate a balanced homemade diet. What’s unusual for a holistic pet care book is that the controversial but very important issue of vaccinations is barely mentioned at all.
    Part three, the main section of the book, is an A-Z guide to over 100 canine and feline ailments from acne and aggression to worms and wounds. Each entry briefly describes the signs/symptoms of the ailment, the cause, and the possible solutions. Don’t expect in-depth treatment plans here (for instance, the book doesn’t even mention that alternative heartworm treatments exist); just simple, natural home remedies. Alternative medicine success stories can be found throughout the text and there’s also an alternative healing resource guide in the back.

    By A Customer

    Amy Shojai’s new book, “New Choices in Natural Healing for Dogs & Cats,” (Rodale Press)…has already helped our two shepherds cope with some troublesome health problems. Every time I try to put it back on the pet care section of book case, out it comes again – ready to answer some new problem. If you haven’t read it, please take a look at the book. It’s arranged beautifully and it gives lots of options for every problem so if one solution isn’t right or isn’t comfortable for you, there are other options to try to help your pet yourself. At the start of each entry in the section on how to handle various problems, she explains what a conventional vet would do and why — that’s a big help because you can decide, before you go to the vet, whether you’re willing to go along with a procedure like that. If cortisone, for example, would be recommended by a conventional vet and you don’t want your kitty to have cortisone unless there’s no other choice, you can look here to see what else you could try instead. And, best of all, Amy also tells you when it’s time to take you pet to the vet. (No more wondering and worrying — is this normal? should I call the doctor? or give it a little more time? is this a serious symptom or just a minor blip?) I can’t recommend this book too highly. Hope you all don’t mind my jumping up on the “Yay, Amy!” soapbox, but this is one gem that really deserves cheers.
