The Natural Vet’s Guide to Preventing and Treating Arthritis in Dogs and Cats
by Shawn Messonnier, DVM
This comprehensive new book offers holistic solutions from one of the world’s leading authorities on integrative care for pets.
When your dog or cat is limping in pain or has trouble exercising, you need answers. The problem may be arthritis, common in dogs and increasingly prevalent in cats.
Our relationships with nonhuman animals are complicated, frustrating, ambiguous, and paradoxical. When people tell me that they love animals and then harm or kill them, I tell them I’m glad they don’t love me. We observe animals, gawk at them in wonder, experiment on them, eat them, wear them, write about them, draw and paint them, move them from here to there as we “redecorate nature.”
People are starting to pay attention to their carbon footprint — how their lifestyle choices tread on the earth. We need to also pay attention to our compassion footprint. In their own ways, animals are constantly asking us to treat them better or leave them alone, and they’re fully justified in making this request. If they could put the request into words, what might their manifesto look like?
As anyone who has owned a dog or a horse can tell you, getting to know animals often means learning more about ourselves. This insight is at the heart of the two recent New World Library releases profiled below. Lynn Reardon's affection for horses led her across state lines into a fulfilling career, and Kevin Behan's lifelong journey as a dog trainer has revealed a startling new theory of canine behavior. We hope these books will inspire you on your own path, whatever it may be!
The Forgotten Horses: The Beauty of America's Unwanted Horses Photographs by Tony Stromberg Foreword by Robert Redford “Tony Stromberg's remarkable photographs express the beauty, grace, spirit, and devotion that all horses embody.” — Robert Redford, from the Foreword
We signed Allen and Linda Anderson's first New World Library book in 2002, and ten books later, they’re still finding the best stories ever to share with other animal lovers. (And we love working with them, too!) The stories always go beyond cute antics or touching anecdotes to the deep connection people and animals share. This week, their e-newsletter, Angel Animals Story of the Week, featured a story and photo by Allen about a photo op with Leaf, their charming and smart canine companion.
