Right now, there are more pets in America than people, and many count their pets among the most beloved members of their family. However, a surprising number of pet owners are not aware that the lifestyle they provide their companions may not be a healthy one. Gary Null has helped countless Americans inprove their diets and their health with his natural approach to healthy living and scepticism of the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. Now, with Natural Pet Care , he carefully and compassionately lays out the ways we can improve our pets’ health and lives. Natural Pet Care includes "Animals on the Move", which explains the importance of proper exercise, "Everybody in the Tub!", which covers natural bathing and grooming products and techniques, "The Impetuous Pet", which helps in understanding your animal’s behavior, and appendices for those seeking holistic veterinary care, pet friendly lodgings and animal friendly organizations. Natural Pet Care also provides sources for natural pet foods and products, while scrutinizing the pet food industry. He describes, for instance, that almost any dog owner would be horrified to learn what really goes into most commercial dog foods—even some of the more expensive brands—including "slaughterhouse throwaways" and diseased animal parts. As an alternative, Null offers "The Tao of Chow," in which he recommends countless natural alternatives that can easily be made at home—recipes included—and which can prolong and improve your pet's life. With this book on your reference shelf, you and your spectacular pet will be ready to tackle anything naturally! Natural Pet Care deals extensively with the health of dogs and cats, but also is devoted to other common pets, including birds, rabbits, ferrets, fish, horses, rodents, and snakes. Long overdue, Gary Null's Natural Pet Care will help pet owners provide their furry, feathered, and scaled companions with the healthy lifestyle they need and deserve.

Trace Minerals are the Building Blocks of the Body. Unfortunately, acid rain, modern agricultural methods and the purifying and processing of our drinking water are depleting the minerals critical to good health from the soil. This leads to the malnourishment of our animals that feed on the products that come from the soil. Revolutionary nutritional discoveries work to change these circumstances and can improve the health and well-being of our furry family members. For instance, crystalloid electrolytes, designed for rapid absorption, provide the vital energy source needed to protect our pets from illness. Dr. Howard Peiper researches the many benefits of trace minerals and electrolytes for your pet. In addition, he provides insights on how fruits, vegetables, enzymes, raw food and a gluten-free diet positively impact your pet's health. He presents this valuable information for your use in "The Best in Natural Pet Care, the Natural Approach for a Healthy Pet."
