Pitcairn's book fails to recognize significant dietary and metabolic differences between cats and dogs. His home made diet section is an excellent example of this. The natural health for our pets has fifteen chapters: We Need a New Approach to Pet Health Care, What Do They Really Put In Pet Food?, Try a Basic Natural Diet - With Supplements, Easy-to-Make Recipes for Pet Food, Special Diets for Special Pets, Helping Your Pet Make the Switch, Exercise, Rest and Natural Grooming, Creating a Healthier Environment, Choosing.

Pitcairn has a long career in the vetinarian industry.

Pitcairn has a long career in the vetinarian industry. I enjoyed reading about his holistic approach to pet health and diet-treating the root cause, not the symptoms. I like the fact that Dr. Pitcairn chose to think outside the box, so to speak, and look for alternatives early in his career when he found that his patients did not always respond to drugs. Plus I would like to have my pet enjoy a healthy life.

  • Recipe's and information was a lifesaver for my 11 yr old mix breed recently diagnosed with CKD. Diagnosed early December. Admitted to clinic for 4 days on IV drip plus new diet plan. Good health lasted about 2 weeks then she stopped eating. Took her back to vet for another IV and discussed euthanizing option. Found information online about Dr Pitcairn and his "dog loaf". Made it for my dog and she ate every bite. Has been on the dog loaf plus supplements for 3 months now and you would never know she is sick.

  • According to our vet, my 14 year old terrier mix had a few days to live due to kidney failure. He was so ill he refused to get up or eat food for over a week and couldn't keep anything down the week prior. He started to get those "droopy eyes of death" as I call it, and that's when I knew there wasn't much time left. I tried to talk myself into letting him go, but wanted to try one more last-ditch effort. After consulting with a homeopathic vet, he recommended following the information in this book as well as giving us some homeopathic meds and vitamins to give him. To our surprise today he is eating well, playing and sniffing out the rabbit holes in the back yard like old times:) I am beyond grateful to Dr. Pitcairn, Dr. Dym and herbalist Juliette de Bairacli-Levy. It's a miracle. Even our conventional vet is amazed.

  • This book is amazing. If you have read my other reviews, pardon the repetitive nature of this one and skip to the bottom.
    I have a beautiful dog family whom I love very much and have always tried to give them the very best care available. I took the Vet's advice as gospel and never let them have any table scraps, always sticking strictly to the Kirkland brand kibble (as the Dr. ordered) and only treats specifically produced for dogs. I was constantly assured (by numerous vets, as inevitably whenever any injury or illness occurred it was outside of regular business hours and so we were forced to take them to emergency clinics) that this was the way to ensure optimal health and the longest lifespan for my sweet babies.
    The first time I considered straying from this path was about a year ago when a fellow student gave a presentation on the RAW food diet for dogs. I was very intrigued and looked into it a bit, but was reassured by our primary Vet that it was unnecessary and being an insanely busy student at the time, I accepted his advice and set the idea on the back burner. It wasn't until we decided to breed our oldest daughter (yes, I refer, quite seriously, to my dogs as my children) that I became fully aware of the immense benefits of cooking & preparing meals for your furry loved ones. I wanted to ensure a healthy, smooth, pregnancy & labor and after considerable research, I decided on three books to help me make the switch. "The Holistic Dog Book" by Denise Flaim, "The Whole Pet Diet" by Andi Brown, and this one. From everything I read, Dr. Pitcairn was the way to go but I always think it's good to have a few different perspectives on something so that you can create a plan that is best for you. I have been overwhelmed by these books and I highly recommend purchasing them together as they make great companions for each other.
    "Natural Health for Dogs & Cats" is a large volume, full of pretty much everything you need to know to raise healthy, happy four-legged family members. The book is split into two parts, "Natural Health for Pets" and a "Quick Reference" section. Part One takes you through every aspect of pet health from pregnancy, to birth, to infancy and every stage beyond. This section also contains recipes specifically for each of these life stages as well as a "Healthy Powder" to ensure that your pets are receiving all the proper nutrients in order to live long, healthy lives. Part Two is a reference guide to every scenario you might want to investigate further without reading through the entire text when you are pressed for time. It's basically an A-Z list of different health issues one might encounter with their pets and how to treat them. This was very helpful in determining the best diet to feed our pregnant girl to ensure she had a healthy, successful pregnancy. There are also chapters on how to make the switch, creating a healthy environment, and holistic & alternative remedies for your pets. We have four dogs and we began to make the switch from kibble to food, immediately upon receiving these books in the mail. I have never been happier and they have never been healthier! (They're pretty stoked about the good food too) We began implementing dietary changes only a little over two weeks ago and I have already seen incredible improvements! Their coats have never been so lush, shiny, and soft! And our handsome boy, who has had skin conditions since we rescued him (and we've tried several Vet-recommended treatments, including shots of steroids, to no avail) has started to put on needed weight that we could never attain no matter what we did, and his skin has almost completely cleared up! And I know this is only the beginning of our amazing new journey to a healthy, happy family! I am so grateful to have these excellent resources in my home!
    If you are looking to make the switch, this is the perfect starting point! And if not, you should reconsider :) When it's all said & done, we are actually spending less money on food and it is so easy to prepare right alongside our own meals, and the reward of truly healthy pups, is beyond anything I could have imagined!

  • Excellent book!! I would have saved a ton of money & time if I would have gotten this book a couple of years ago, I've spent countless hours researching trying to save my dog and have done a great job, my yorkie is 18 months post diagnosis of bladder cancer, I've only treated her holistically at home. So far I agree with everything that in this book. If you are sick of poisoning your dog with western pharmaceuticals, get this book and try a new way!

  • Seems pretty good. Haven't read it all yet but the author has a legit point about diet vs illness. My 5 month old pit bull had Demedex so bad when I first got her and the vet gave her 2 treatments of Promeris which almost killed her. I refused to let the vet give it for the full 6 months and searched the internet for homeopathic diets for demedex mites/mange. My older pit was jealous so I started feeding him the same thing.
    FOR TWO DOGS FOR ONE WEEK:
    I still am leery of feeding my dogs raw food after my friend's boxer almost died from salmonella poisoning. SO, I pressure cook ten pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, +two packs of gizzards/hearts, add one dozen hard boiled eggs (with shells), put all of this cooked stuff through food processor THEN ADD: 4 cups cooked/rinsed, long grain, brown rice or pearled barley, (unless you want to avoid grains entirely--never hurt mine and they like it) one pound peeled, food processed, raw carrots, one pound other veggies BLANCHED (peas, green beans, broccoli, squash,kale) and food process, sometimes i add peeled apples, COOKED sweet potato. Also, I add a few tablespoons of fish oil/olive oil OR I just feed them each 1-2 canned sardines every other day. i was adding a pound of lentils but it may have been too much fiber for my older dog who got the runs so I stopped and he's better now. MY PUPPY GOT BETTER IN A MATTER OF TWO WEEKS--NO MORE BARE SPOTS AND NO MORE DEADLY DRUGS THAT KNOCKED HER OUT!! Today she is 5 years old and doing GREAT! Love my pits
