<p>As a holistic veterinarian and scientist, <b>Dr. Gary Richter</b> helps dog and cat owners to navigate the thicket of treatment options and separate the fact from the fiction.

This multifaceted approach to health is known as integrative medicine.</p><p>In this book, Dr. Richter examines traditional medicine from many cultures alongside modern medical techniques, describing the best of complementary care and the best of conventional veterinary medicine. Every treatment he recommends has the backing of scientific research or years of successful outcomes in his clinical practice. After explaining the treatment, he offers specific recommendations for an integrative approach to common diseases, including allergies, skin conditions, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.</p><p>A holistic approach to health includes nutrition, as it sets up the foundation for your pet’s health.

He also explains how we can use the right foods and supplements to “hack” the body’s processes, including the immune system.</p>

<P><B>James Herriot meets Bridget Jones in this honest, no-holds-barred account of the ups and downs of a vet's life</B></P><P><I>Misty was ecstatic to see her owner but to the nurse's surprise her owner just stood there and said, "What have you done with my dog’s head?" "I’m sorry," replied the nurse, "what do you mean? She’s just been in for spaying." "That isn’t my dog’s head. The rest of it is my dog but you’ve put a different head on it."</I></P><P>On a crisp October morning in 1996, Emma Milne started her first job as a newly qualified vet, and now she tells the full story. We discover the numerous things that can get stuck in an animal's stomach, how to stop a cow exploding, and—the biggest truth of all—that animals are easy to deal with in comparison to their owners. They say that truth is stranger than fiction, and these tales turn out to be stranger—and funnier—than you could ever have imagined.

After building up his own practice, the renowned country vet begins to teach a new generation about a business both old-fashioned and very modern. He watches with pride as his own children show a knack for medicine, and remarks on the talents and quirks of a string of assistants. There is no perfecting the craft, since people and their animals are all remarkably different, but Herriot proves that the best healers are also the most compassionate.</DIV><DIV> </DIV></DIV>
