The Complete Holistic Dog Book: Home Health Care for Our Canine Companions (The Holistic Animal Health Series) Reviews
As co-author of a better selling book on this topic, I have to say, this is a truly outstanding book that deserves a wider audience. I have also come to know Jan Allegretti personally and love her integrity and insight. She has also been among the pioneers of those very successfully feeding a healthy, balanced, varied vegan diet to dogs, which she and many others have found to increase health and longevity. Good for animals, good for the planet. Plus, the book is very well written and comprehensive. Highly recommended.
I am very impressed with the layout of this book and with how well the authors present each area of interest. The style is much like that of a very easy to follow text book...one that even an average 5th grade student should have no struggles with understanding. Everything is well organized and beautifully presented. Even the illustrated sketches are very well drawn out and educational. --absolutely spectacular!
If you love your dog(s); and, I know that you do or you wouldn't be reading this...don't hesitate to get a copy of this book. It's packed with practical information that is easy to find. The best thing is that it is user friendly. Options are provided for real people from selecting the best prepared/store food for your pet to how to make balanced organic meals for them yourself. The info is useful and provided with understanding, not judgement. Some articles seem slanted to create guilt if you don't provide care in the way the article deems best. This book explains your dog's various needs and then provides a host of ways that you might be able to provide for them. It is left to the reader to determine what is best for their pet and their lifestyle. It covers a lot of ground and I'm extremely happy that I've made this part of my family's healthy living library!
I found this book extremely balanced in terms of providing feeding information if you are interested in providing fresh food for your dog's diet. Its good to realize that it can be done without a tremendous amount of extra time and effort. In fact, my husband and I realized that WE don't eat well enough to just cook a little extra for our dog, as suggested. We were inspired to improve our own diet to include the variety proposed for our dog!
This is a great book. Well organized with lots of graphics. I call it my wellness doggy bible.
I have a variety of books on health for dogs, which I reference often. I noticed lately, however, that I've gone to this book first over and over and often I don't need to look at any of my other books. I usually cross reference material, but I've found valididated information from several other sources in this book so often that I save myself the trouble and just reference this book now.
