The Whole Horse Wellness Guide is the first and only book to combine traditional veterinary care with holistic treatments for an integrated medical approach to the care of horses. This cutting-edge guide helps you determine when it is appropriate to treat your horse using natural remedies and when you should consider seeking veterinary consult.
The book explains how many health problems may affect major body systems, how to manage and treat them, and even how to prevent problems before they start by recognizing subtle physical and emotional signals. It explores the ways in which the body-mind connection influences your horse's behavior and how alternative therapies can help in healing his spirit as well as his body. You also will learn how to assess ailments, injuries, and illnesses from the perspective of multiple therapies and remedies, including Western veterinary medicine, holistic medicine, nutritional therapy, herbal and Ayurvedic therapies, acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy, aromatherapy, bioenergetic medicine, and more.
For the horse lover looking for the most up-to-date options in equine healthcare, including all the major conventional, natural, and alternative healing modalities available, The Whole Horse Wellness Guide provides a comprehensive, in-depth reference that is informative, easy to read, and filled with colorful photographs, helpful tip boxes, and sidebars.
