Alternative Treatments for Animals

A Guide to Naturally Healing Cats, Dogs, Horses, and More for Owners and Caregivers

Foreword by Race Foster

With alternative treatments as diverse as acupuncture, homeopathy, or feng shui, give your pets the best care—naturally.

In addition to traditional veterinary treatments, modern pet owners are now offered a wide range of alternative treatments for their animals. This authoritative guide, illuminated by case histories and personal experiences, will help pet owners and caregivers understand and select from a wealth of options.

Discussing the scope of illnesses and conditions that different approaches are intended to aid, pet expert Lisa Preston covers the strengths and limitations of today’s most popular alternative therapy methods and offers solid advice on choosing a practitioner and integrating care. Alternative treatments discussed include:

  • Chiropractic
  • Homeopathic
  • Naturopathic
  • Holistic
  • And more!
We all want what is best for our pets. In that spirit, this book allows us to make sure they get just that.

Lisa Preston turned to writing after careers as a fire department paramedic and a city police officer. She is the author of the highly acclaimed, best-selling novels, Orchids and Stone and Measure of the Moon and the Horseshoer Mystery Series. She is also the author of several non-fiction books and articles on the care and training of dogs and horses. Away from her desk, she spends hours on backcountry trails as a runner and rider, sometimes combining her two outdoor pursuits via the obscure sport of Ride and Tie. She lives with her husband, their Malinois, and two Akhal Tekes on Washington State's vast Olympic Peninsula. lisapreston.com
