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>

<B>An integrative and revolutionary way to treat your animals, combining holistic and natural medicine with the best of modern science.</B> <BR><BR>Dr. Barbara Royal is a passionate, dedicated, and innovative veterinarian with a unique approach to medicine. Her patients have included countless different species from German shepherds at her private practice, to baby owls in the wild, to zebras in the zoo. Her clients are the humans who live for their pets, much like she does. Her ability to lend a voice to sick or injured animals and carry out the best treatment for them is unmatched. <BR><BR>An expert diagnostician with a background in zoo and wildlife medicine, Dr. Royal has learned that adhering to the teachings of Western medicine is often not the best way to fully cure her patients. With the clinical experience to know when to use surgery, medications, and alternative methods, plus an observant and empathetic understanding of the evolutionary needs of her patients, she individually tailors the Royal Treatment to ensure that each pet (and owner!) lives as happily and healthfully as possible. <BR><BR>The knowledge she has gained from wild animals gives her valuable insight into the cat in your kitchen and the dog in your living room. Our pets have all evolved from wild species and adapted to domestic life in many ways, but their natural characteristics are genetically fixed. In order for our pets to meet their full health potential, we must be mindful of these natural nutritional, emotional, and physical needs. Applying common sense in this way, along with the support of medicine, nutrition, elements of Eastern medicine, and physical rehabilitation, fosters an animal’s natural inclination toward optimal health and immunity. There is no placebo effect in animal medicine, and Dr. Royal has seen amazing results with her integrative approach, time and time again. <BR><BR>A must-have for all pet owners, these pages shimmer with ingenious advice, insight, and scientific originality. But most of all, a veterinarian with heart comes through in every word. Dr. Royal empowers animal lovers to lift their pets into a realm of natural health and happiness that will be palpable from shiny coat to bouncy step. <BR><BR>*** <BR><BR> Learn everything you need to know about taking care of your pet naturally, including: <BR><BR>• Functional nutrition and diet recipes <BR><BR>• Commercial pet food: recognizing the good, the bad, and the unhealthy <BR><BR>• How diet and protein levels specifically affect your pet’s health and behavior <BR><BR>• Judicious use of herbs and medicines <BR><BR>• How to detect if your pet is feeling pain and where <BR><BR>• Noninvasive, nonsurgical treatments for genetically flawed hips and other arthritic joints <BR><BR>• How to know if your pet is happy <BR><BR>• How to clean your dog’s, cat’s, or rabbit’s ears—the right way! <BR><BR>• Pet supplements explained <BR><BR>• Which vaccines to give or not give your pet <BR><BR>• Evolutionary insights into your pet’s behavior <BR><BR>• Getting your new puppy off to a perfect start <BR><BR>• How acupuncture works <BR><BR>• Geriatric wellness and end-of-life care <BR><BR><I>. . . and more</I>

<div>Ten years ago, Dr. Gerd Heuschmann rocked the equestrian world with his international bestseller <I>Tug of War</I>, a searing indictment of modern training and riding techniques that are sometimes used to the detriment of the horse. Now Dr. Heuschmann returns with this follow-up book: a critical examination of two concepts—flexion and bend—that are necessary to understand in absolute terms when the goal is to achieve collection on horseback.<BR><BR>Citing the many masters of classical dressage who wrote essays and even entire books about flexion at the horse’s poll and longitudinal bend of the horse’s body, Dr. Heuschmann strives to conflate the often complex classic literature with the results of his own studies as an expert in equine anatomy and biomechanics. He meticulously describes various movements used, their desired effects, and the truth behind the rider’s role in each. In addition, he unveils his recommendations for dealing with the horse’s “natural crookedness” and “false bend,” providing basic guidelines for schooling that ensure correct gymnasticization with the end-goal of a more athletic, collected horse in mind, and happier, healthier horses in the long run.</div>

The fourth edition of Surgical Knots and Suturing Techniques includes updated information regarding suture materials, sterilization products and improvements to all illustrations. The knot tying techniques continue to be the primary content. <br /><br />This handbook is directed to medical students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, emergency medical technicians, surgical assistants, animal research specialists and the important but rarely addressed community of food animal producers. Important information for cleaning, sterilizing and preparing the surgical field in addition to closing acute wounds and incisions is included. Much of this information was previously available in The Pocket Manual of Basic Surgical Skills, Mosby, 1986. <br /><br />Professional medical and paramedical curricula include extensive training in aseptic and sterile techniques as well as educating students in wound management. Animal science curricula educates the potential livestock producer in management procedures but leaves the problems involving the health of the animals to the veterinary profession. However, there are occasions when livestock producers, backcountry travelers, and ocean going mates and captains are confronted with problems needing immediate attention. The procedures included in this handbook can be helpful in preparing those individuals for such crises.<br /><br />Learning surgical knot tying and suturing techniques is challenging and much practice is required to develop proficiency. This handbook is a guide explaining and demonstrating the principle maneuvers of surgical knot tying along with a step-by-step description of each maneuver. The illustrations make each step of knot tying understandable and easier to learn. <br /><br />The necessary materials are available through medical school facilities and veterinary supply stores. Stockmen needing supplies for emergency treatment of domestic animals should ask their veterinarian for materials and instructions. Materials are also available online.<br /><br />Consultations with authors of the books I have illustrated for human and veterinary medicine throughout my career are the primary source for the information contained in this book.
