The authors of this book have done something truly remarkable. They have created a book, as well as a tool, that encourages and teaches a honds-on approach to health. This manual empowers people, giving them the ability to participate in the health and well-being of their dogs. -- Shelly Hawley-Yin, Director, Animal Alliance of Canada<br /><br />This book does for canine acupressure what my books do for human acupressure, presenting the traditional theory in an easily digestible way and making it very do-able. Just by reading this book and trying the stretches and the point recipes for common problems, you can help your dog's health. -- Iona Marsaa Teeguarden, MA, Author<br /><br />This book is a contribution to the necessary turn-around in our thinking about life and reactions toward disease and suffering. It is indeed a welcome and much needed addition to the growing library of useful texts and manuals on companion animal care and health maintenance. Additionally, there is benefit for those who discover the power of the healing touch. It is something that we can all give, and refine and in the process we facilitate our own healing and wholeness as we relax, focus and touch --Dr. Michael W. Fox, Author and Veterinarian

When I purchased this book, it was my hope to add acupressure to the massage therapy I am able to provide for my dog. However, without a natural intuitive sense of these pressure points, I am at a loss to apply pressure without a specific diagram that would show me the exact location of the numerous points on the canine body.
It is a shame as it is basically a very fine book, but given the context, I consider the lack of exact direction in finding the acupressure points a significant flaw.
Once had a 100% positive experience with acupuncture on a dog hit by a car, of course necessitating the use of a Holistically oriented DVM. Nice to know I can find the points and help with less severe aches on my animals.
Traditional Chinese medicine is a difficult conceptfor most Westerners, and the authors explain the basic principles in a manner that allows we "newbies" to start affecting change in their dog's health immediately after reading their book.
I highly recommend this book to those who are searching for a more holistic approach to their animal's health care.
