In his book Heal Your Dog the Natural Way, top veterinarian Richard Allport introduces owners to a wide variety of alternative therapies that are available for our canine friends. Allport's intelligent discussion of the five main therapies in the "Natural Therapies" section--namely aromatherapy, homeopathy, herbal medicine, Bach flowers, and acupuncture--includes information on the origins and development of the five therapies, what kinds of problems may be treated by each, and how each therapy should be used to achieve optimum results. Of particular importance in this section is the emphasis placed on the safe and informed use of each treatment--"Acupuncture therapy must only be carried out by a vet trained in the technique: never attempt to use acupuncture needles yourself at home." "In aromatherapy, essential oils given by mouth can be toxic if given too frequently; a homeopathic remedy in the wrong potency can aggravate symptoms." The second section, titled "Common Diseases and Conditions," examines many common dog illnesses and the natural remedies that may be used to alleviate the symptoms--banana skin is wonderful for warts, while cod-liver oil relieves arthritic pain. Case studies, an easy-to-follow format, and color photographs throughout will help in deciding what therapy is right for your dog, but keep in mind that when thinking of alternative treatments, you must keep your vet informed, as Allport clearly states in his introduction: "it [the book] is NOT intended to be a substitute for seeking professional veterinary assistance for your dog whenever necessary. Never try to diagnose and treat illness solely from the information in these pages. If you are ever in any doubt about your dog's health or welfare, you must consult your vet--remember that failure to do so could put your dog's life at risk." --Stefanie HargreavesAbout the Author:
