Alt-Vet:The revolutionary Pet care and Longevity Solution

Alt-Vet- The Revolutionary Pet Care and Longevity Solution. explores the alternative therapies that are available to your pet through a network of alternative veterinary medicine practitioners throughout the country, but offers some simple and safe therapies you can do at home with your pet that will them maintain a high level of health and happiness. TCVM is not some new concept- it has been practiced for thousands of years, yet surprisingly, many Americans have not heard of it or tried it with their pet. Alt-Vet contains real life stories of animals that have been brought to my clinic by pet owners that were looking for some hope of saving their animal, reducing their pain, and increasing their quality of life. Many of those pet owners come in skeptics and leave believers. Alt-Vet offers chapters on pet massage, healing diets, and emergency response care. The techniques offered are low cost and simple to implement. It is the goal of this book to inspire pet owners to embrace a holistic lifestyle for their pets and in the process to extend their furry companions' quality of life.
