Expanded and updated, Dr. Khalsa's Natural Dog, in its second edition, presents an inspired way for dog owners to design a diet specifically for their dog's needs, lifestyle, age, and health. Developed over decades of practice and study, Dr. Khalsa's methods combine traditional veterinary medicine, wholesome nutrition, and holistic therapies, such as alternative methods, herbal remedies, and botanical medicine. In the new edition, Dr. Khalsa will present the latest research on such important issues as avoiding and treating cancer, chronic gastrointestinal problems, allergy elimination, and effective holistic treatments for ten common problems.
In the Foreword, Dr. Marty Goldstein, a colleague of the author for over four decades, says that Dr. Khalsa knows, feels, and practices healing, patient by patient [and] this book is nothing more than a mirror of the incredible spiritual energy of a true healer. By using the simple methods and concepts put forth in Dr. Khalsa's Natural Dog, dog owners can effect positive, life-changing improvements for their beloved four-legged companions.
