Written in an engaging style suitable for experienced cat lovers and first-time owners, "The Holistic Cat" focuses on disease prevention and provides specific tips for raising your pet in a healthy, safe environment. Author Jennifer Coscia combines her many years of experience as a nutritional consultant and as the owner of an animal rescue adoption organization to cover a range of topics including nutrition, conventional vs. holistic healthcare and the use of complementary veterinary care, indoor vs. outdoor cats, vaccine-related illnesses, household and outdoor hazards, disease-specific protocols, and how to make arrangements for your cat when you are travelling and moving. Coscia also addresses why we see so much more disease in cats than we did twenty years ago, theorizing that the overuse of vaccines and drugs in veterinary care, along with the multitude of chemicals and contaminants that are added to pet foods and our water supply, is slowly killing our cats.She advocates the use of complementary medicine to treat cats, combining the best of conventional and holistic techniques.
Coscia also describes seeing cats hurled from cars, thrown from bridges, ripped apart by dogs, drowned in pools, and born with severe deformities as well as rescuing kittens that were born in walls, in condemned buildings, inside a flooded drainpipe under a road, on a boat, and even in the engine of a truck in a wrecking yard. This indispensable resource for cat owners teaches a new approach to feline health and is also a valuable guide for veterinary students who want to learn about using alternative modalities to treat cats.
