You are a responsible cat mommy or dog daddy. You spend quality time with your friend, buy him or her the latest in cool gear, schedule regular vet checkups and dish up quality food instead of the cheap junk. To take the next step, get a copy of Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats.

Back in the day, Richard Pitcairn was a conventional vet—until he helped one dog get past numerous skin issues by recommending a new diet. Since then, Pitcairn has, among other things, run a holistic vet clinic, co-founded the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy, helped train hundreds of other vets—and written a book that has sold more than half a million copies and is now in its fourth edition.

The Complete Guide distills Pitcairn’s vast experience into a user-friendly sourcebook. Diet remains the focal point; Pitcairn advocates moving from a high-meat diet to one that’s organic and more plant-based, for the health of both pets and the planet, and provides recipes so you can make the switch. (If you’re worried about Kitty because cats’ systems are tailored more towards meat than dogs’ are, relax; the book covers that issue, too.) Other topics include reducing toxin exposure and alternative therapies, along with material on grooming, exercise, and other standard living-with-a pet stuff. Being a good pet parent requires knowing how to care for your friend properly. Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats can make that easier.
