You Can Heal Your Pet is a no-nonsense guide that inspires a new type of holistic pet care and empowers the modern pet owner. Combining the expertise and knowledge of leading veterinary surgeon Dr Rohini Sathish MRCVS, and internationally renowned animal complementary therapist Elizabeth Whiter, this unique and authoritative guide provides:

  • a comprehensive A–Z directory of common health conditions with treatment options
  • top tips to harvest and make simple, tried-and-tested herbal remedies
  • dietary advice for optimum health, and easy-to-make food recipes
  • information on how to vet your vet!
  • a step-by-step guide to energy healing and acupressure points
Both Liz and Rohini believe that while conventional veterinary treatment is vital for acute conditions and emergencies, it fails to cure chronic problems. The way forward is a holistic, integrated approach with the active input of a dedicated pet owner – you. You, and only you, can really heal your pet!
