More About This Title The Holistic Animal Handbook


The Holistic Animal Handbook is the first book to bring together practical information about diet, nutrition, and training with animal communication and emotional balancing techniques. The book guides readers into helping their companion animals themselves and encourages them to work as well with veterinarians, trainers, and health care practitioners. It includes chapters that explain how to prepare healthy, holistic recipes and Bach Flower Remedies for restoring an animal's emotional balance, and solutions for common behavioral and training problems. Focusing primarily on dogs, cats, and horses, but relevant to virtually all animals, the book presents a dual premise: healthy companion animals are better equipped to help the humans they love, just as educated humans are better able to comprehend their animals' needs.
