Tap into the endless resources of Nature itself with this essential and up-to-the-minute book. In Natural Cat Care, Dr. Bruce Fogle, DVM -- veterinary surgeon, columnist, broadcaster and the worldÕs best-selling practicing vet -- examines and explains new methods of creating a healthier more energetic life for your cat using revolutionary holistic or "complementary" techniques, including acupressure, herbs, hydrotherapy, osteopathy, and manipulation. Illustrated with DK's signature style, bringing each bit of history, information and advice to life with color photographs and drawings, Natural Cat Care takes a simple and accessible approach to pet health. In this book, Dr. Fogle teaches cat owners how to prevent feline obesity with the right nutrients and exercise. Cats should not be given any food or nutrient in excess, and it is important that a cat's diet contain a variety of proteins. In this book, Fogle also teaches cat owners how to assess their cat's body conditions, where you pet's energy comes from, and how to prepare home recipes. He also offers easy-to-follow suggestions for treating ailments using natural remedies. In a chapter on "Natural Training," Fogle encourages cat owners to avoid breeding young females who havenÕt reached emotional maturity and to try to understand a catÕs needs in teaching it how to cope with life in a human household. Though the book focuses on ways to harness evolutionary defenses rather than suppress them with medications, the ever-practical Fogle does make room to explain when conventional care should be sought or combined with holistic health care. The result is an approach to caring for your cat that balances the best of the old and the new for advice you can trust and rely on for years to come.
