The Natural Health Bible for Dogs & Cats was chosen from a large field of entries of pet health books published in 2001. According to the author, Dr. Shawn Messonnier, "I am honored that my book was chosen for this distinguished award. 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 love dogs/animals and would like to share this information to help others who have dogs suffering from severe allergy - skin/fur disorders and/or Atopic Dermatitis (we have been adopting dogs for the last 18 years). I am not a veterinarian and I was not paid to write this, I am simply sharing this information in hope to help dogs with allergy issues. The first step of course is seeing a veterinarian to diagnose the problem.
I am writing this post because I want to help other dogs suffering from atopic dermatitis or similar conditions.... in Dec. 2017 I groomed a dog "Deacon" who has Atopic Dermatitis - he was so miserable, depressed and had red dry patches, flaky itchy skin and bald patches all over his body.... it broke my heart...
So I did some reason about natural products to help this poor dog and ran across "Zesty Paws Allergy Immune bites" and "Zesty Paws Virgin Coconut Oil" and "Zesty Paws Omega Krill bites" on smile.Amazon.com - I purchased one jar each and gave it to the owner and told him to give it to Deacon as recommended on a regular basis... the owner told me that Deacon is on prescription medication.... but obviously, it was not helping much by the way poor Deacon looked and felt.
It was about two month later when I received the following email responses from Deacon's owner, which made me happy and since I want to help as many other dogs suffering from Atopic Dermatitis or similar conditions, I want to recommend the above mentioned products for other dogs because they are working for Deacon who has been diagnosed with Atopic Dermatitis (I was not paid by the manufacturer and did not receive any benefits for writing this).
Reading the owner responses as to the results and effectiveness of the products I purchased for this dog, I just want to pass this information along to help other suffering dogs:
Another email from Deacon's owner:
"We've been feeding him the treats and the coconut supplement for a couple of weeks now. He seems to be feeling fine. He doesn't seem depressed and only occasionally acts like his skin is bothering him. I'll keep you posted as we continue what we are doing. Kent -
Another email said:
"Hi Carola, I wanted to let you know Deacon is continuing to improve. I didn't take any before pics, but I've attached 3 pics that I took recently. One pic is a close up of his skin, the focus is not great, but you can tell his skin is much more of a natural color and texture, it no longer looks red and irritated. You can also see how nice his coat looks compared to when you groomed him. Thank you for all you've done and we'll keep working on him! Kent -
Another email from Deacon's owner:
"We've been feeding him the treats and the coconut supplement for a couple of weeks now. He seems to be feeling fine. He doesn't seem depressed and only occasionally acts like his skin is bothering him. I'll keep you posted as we continue what we are doing. Sincerely, Kent -
And in another email he told me:
"let me tell you how it's worked. I have been adding the coconut paste to this food and giving him the omega 3 treats on a regular basis. My wife Susan, gave him a bath last weekend with the coconut oil. Since we've started using the coconut products and the omega 3 treats, I've seen an amazing turn around with his dry skin. He doesn't scratch near as much, almost none at all now, and his fur is looking much nicer. I'm going to continue use of the things you've sent because they seem to be working really well. We appreciate (and Deacon too) everything you do and will continue to try whatever you send; so far it has been working very well. Sincerely, Kent -
All I can hope for is that those products will also help other suffering dogs!
Organized very well but very basic information for me (I work for a vet)... some of it was new and interesting, but some of it is lacking (ie, collagen as a joint supplement must be UC-II, or else you are wasting your money).
Still would recommend as a good overview and starting point.
