      The Holistic Animal Handbook: by Kate Solisti-Mattelon (Author) & Patrice Mattelon (Author) (1582700230)

      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 is designed to guide readers into helping their companion animals themselves and encourages them to work in partnership with veterinarians, trainers, and healthcare practitioners.  

      This book is the results of the authors' many years of experience working with companion animals and their people.  It includes chapters that explain how to prepare healthy, holistic recipes and Bach Flower Remedies for restoring an animals's emotional balance.  There is also a chapter that describes natural techniques for dealing with common behavioral and training problems.

      The goal of this book is to provide animal guardians with a starting point form which they can foster and practice deeper inter-species communication.  Focusing primarily on dogs, cats, and horses but relevant to virtually all animals, they 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 what their animals are about.
