This award, presented by the CWA and peerlesshealth.com, recognizes one book each year which best reflects and promotes a complementary or integrated approach to a cat's emotional or physical needs.

The Natural Health Bible for Dogs & Cats was chosen from a large field of entries of pet health books published in 2001.

In my practice in Plano, Tx, each day I see many positive benefits of integrative medicine holds for my patients. I hope that as veterinarians and pet owners read The Natural Health Bible for Dogs & Cats, many more pet lives will be improved and saved by using the proven therapies I discuss in the book."

I can recommend this book to anyone that wants to improve the health of their dog or cat. I have a special needs dog and I needed information on the proper supplements and food to feed him.

This book is an EXCELLENT source for that information and so much more. It provided me with one source for information and helped me make decisions on supplements and food I should use.

The title says it all. It really is the "Natural Health Bible" for dog and cat care. When I need more information, this is the first book I refer to. Every page is well written and complete.

Each topic is easy to understand and easy to follow. If you are looking for a natural approach for your pets healthcare, you should add this book to your library. Youll be happy you did.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Messonnier's aproach to natural health for dogs and cats is neither too complicated for the average person to follow nor too far-out to work in conjunction with a traditional family vet's advice. Good, practical information is presented in "real person" language, making this book an excellent guide for anyone concerned about their dog or cat's health.
In addition to information that will help you keep your pet healthy, Dr. Messonnier introduces various types of complimentary and alternative therapies for sick or injured pets. He instructs readers on how to use these treatments alone, or in conjunction with traditional medicine, to ensure a holistic approach to pet health. Readers can choose the best path to their pet's wellness by using the more familiar route, or by combining techniques to meet their dog or cat's need.
This book is a must for any pet owner who thinks outside the box of traditional pet health care.

One of the Most Comprehensive Books I have ever read, Its more than a BIBLE, for not only Veterinarians but Pet Owners as well. Its a Must Have! Dr. Messonnier's information is very extensive and obviously he must be rewarded for the knowledge that he is willing to share with the public. Besides medical advice he also gives one alternative suggestions for healing their pet.Writing in layman's terms its easy to understand and you don't have to have a medical degree or be a rocket scientist.
Besides ailments, & conditions he also give you a full compliment on herbs, vitamins and supplements Diets & therapies & alot more...Don't miss your opportunity to help your pet even if you have no problems...Learn to avoid some of the unfortunate problems that pet owners have with theirs...This book is more than a God Send! Thank you Dr. Messonnier for your knowledge.

This book is a must have book for all pet owners. I have owned pets all my life and could not believe the things I learned from this book. There were many things in this book our vet never discussed with me. I use alternative medicine for myself and my family but never knew I could for our family dog. Dr. Messonnier provided traditional treatments along with alternative treatments in a very easy to use book. He provided valuable inforamtion on pet foods and the pets diet that our vet never discussed. I would recommend this book to every pet owner.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Messonier has written a comprehensive and concise guide to a number of animal ailments and choices for their treatment.
He does an admirable job of presenting current conventional and alternative treatments in a very attractive format.
The book also gives great information for making good choices on feeding dogs and cats, emphasizing the importance of nutrition in good health.
It is a good reference source for a veterinarian to have on her desk, and a useful, enjoyable read for animal owners to keep in their home.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great, concise review of what is currently known about many natural remedies, and also of many of the currently used natural remedies for specific conditions. Information is organized in tow ways: First, a list of conditions and their natural remedies, from herbs to diet, and other modalities; second, a list of herbs, supplements and diets, and their common uses, therapeutoic uses, dosages, scientific evidence, sources and safety issues. A great book for both veterinarians and the lay person. Full of up to date information, presented in language which is easilky understood by anyone.

This book is a "must buy" for all pet lovers who demand the highest quality of care for their animals. Since I have been both a librarian and a proud owner of a large menagerie for over twenty years, I have evaluated and used hundreds of books dealing with the care of companion animals. Dr. Messonnier's work is certainly the most superior.
It is extremely comprehensive, unbiased in presentation and easily understood by a lay person. Each section is clearly written, deals with both alternative and traditional veterinary medicine and is cross-referenced for easy access.
I refer to my copy daily and find that I am constantly talking to friends, quoting information, and recommending that they purchase copies of their own.
As I stated earlier, this guide is a "must have" for all who treasure their animals.

This book is really useful for learning the uses and effects of different herbs and supplements. One of the best things about this book is how it's organized. One section lists ailments, each one with a description, treatment options, and listing of natural remedies. A second section lists all the natural remedies, what they can be used to treat, and how they work. I didn't find the nutrition section very useful, but I would definitely recommend the book for it's extensive ailment and remedy listings.
