The BEST all around bk on Chinese Medicine for small animals,
By A Customer
This review is from: Four Paws, Five Directions: A Guide to Chinese Medicine for Cats and Dogs (Paperback)
As a veterinarian who is becoming open to and familiar with alternative health care, I highly recommend Cheryl Schwarz's book to everyone, professionals as well as pet owners. It gives a well rounded easy to read overview of Chinese medicine basics as they apply to small animals including 5-Element and 8-Principle theory. Cheryl gives comprehensive accupressure basics and guidelines. In the second half of the book she discusses individual pet health problems in terms of Eastern Medicine and makes accupressure, herbal and dietary recommendations based on her wealth of knowledge. I have one copy at the office, one at home, I bought each of my other vets a copy and I've already had 5 clients buy it! A GREAT resource book for beginners AND experienced practitioners.
