This practical guide synthesizes the types of treatment available for specific diseases. It is a handy reference that provides readers with an understanding of complementary and alternative treatment options for more than 130 common disease states and describes a variety of possible approaches to small animal disorders. Concentrating on nutrition, herbs, traditional Chinese medicines, and physical therapies, the authors present both tradition- and evidence-based therapies for disorders not always responsive to conventional therapies.


"Books aimed specifically at veterinary surgeons and which cover a variety of natural therapies at a professional and concise level are rare. Particularly so books written by such well-respected authors as Susan Wynn and Steve Marsden. Both experienced in their field, Susan Wynn is a member of the American Herbalist Guild and an IVAS certified acupuncture, naturopathy and is both a Master of Oriental Medicine and a diplomate of Chinese Herbology.

Its source material is derived from a thorough literature review with excellent added material gained from experience within their own practices.

For UK-based veterinary surgeons the information on the location and use of acupuncture points in treating a wide variety of conditions is excellent.

This pocket-sized book...is an excellent source of information for any veterinary surgeon with an interest in complementary medicine and should be a welcome addition to the practice library" tim couzens, veterinary times, September 2003
