Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats
Third Edition, Revised & Updated

by Richard H. Pitcairn, DVM, PhD. & Susan Hubble Pitcairn

      Dr. Richard H. Pitcairn and Susan Hubble Pitcairn have put together a wonderful guide to the homeopathic care and understanding of those loving little furry friends that we humans welcome into our lives and take the responsibility of their health into our hands. This book is chock full of information about all types of ailments and products to help cure potential problems.

There are recipes and discussions of ailments and alternative methods/cures that you should ask your veterinarian about, as well as diets for all kind of problems that you might be able to give your pet yourself to avoid certain malfunctions of their systems and prolong their lives. This book is a very helpful guide to every problem that you might run across in your life with your best pals. There are breakdowns of the various varieties of foods available commercially, as well as many recipes that even the less skilled cooks can put together for a happy and healthy pet. There are also suggestions to help you pick the best possible ingredients to feed your pet based on his/her needs.

I have dogs and cats in my household and have found a wealth of things that I didn't know and had things explained that I have wondered about. And for fifty-five years I have given my heart to dogs specifically, a life-long devotion. With that stated, I wish to admire publicly all of the time and effort that Dr. Pitcairn and his wife Susan have put into this book full of facts and love. Susan lent her hand at picking the lovely little pictures of faith and consideration full of compassion and an innate understanding of the animal inside of the body. She also put her own heart into the words and concerns inside the pages. This book should be a must on the bookshelf of anyone who has given their home over to the love and care of these creatures who have captured our hearts.

If you love your pet, Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats, a 450-page volume, is well worth the heft. Great book, highly recommended.
