Pets hate to go to the vet - and now they may not have to, thanks to the more than 200 veterinarians, trainers and other animal experts who share their expertise and best advice in The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Dogs and Cats. This practical and entertaining guide offers more than 1,000 solutions to some of the most common pet problems - all for less than the cost of a single trip to the vet! You'll discover easy-to-follow tips for problems that have stumped you in the past, like how to give your cat a bath, pain-free ways to remove hair mats, an easy way to give a pill, how to stop a cat fight in progress, and getting rid of skunk spray odor. You'll also find hundreds of effective tips for treating common, everyday conditions like allergies, bad breath, ear mites, fleas, itchy skin, paw problems, teething pain, weepy eyes and wounds. But The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Dogs and Cats is much more than a guide to your pet's physical and emotional health. It also gives solutions to some of the toughest behavior problems, like how to save your floors by preventing "accidents", how to prevent pet boredom, the best way to hold a leash to stop aggression, gentle ways to discourage begging, how to walk your cat, safe strategies to stop biting, how to ease depression, and gentle strategies for easing fears. And most important of all, this book tells you when you should take your pet to a vet - and what to do until you get there.
