The Holistic Pet Plan
My simple eight-week program was carefully developed to introduce the elements of a Holistic Pet Plan in a natural order for creating a healthy pet. The basic principles help make you keenly aware of the inside of the body, the outside of the body, and the total environment. By following the program, you can transform your pet step-by-step, each week adding a new element while continuing those from the previous weeks. It’s important to follow the program in order, and also to keep detailed notes about what you experience, so I’ve created a Whole Pet Journal, complete with three important forms: a Weekly Checkup list, a Whole Pet Portrait, and a Week at a Glance chart.
These easy reference tools will guide you and your pet through the eight weeks (with ease), providing tips and insight every step of the way, along with easy-to-make recipes and remedies. Each of these chapters begins with a small, thoughtful project that will help broaden and deepen your understanding of whole pet health.
In addition to food fundamentals, we’ll cover the importance of essential fatty acids, choosing the healthiest treats, the benefits of sunlight and regular exercise, the power of green foods, boosting the immune system, and the glorious art of the spa.
Throughout the book, I’ll share my methods with you and explain the changes and challenges that are likely to occur as you follow these guidelines. More important, I’ll help you understand the reasons behind the practices and provide you with insights to assist you on your journey. Throughout, I’ll share with you heartwarming, true pet stories, so you can see for yourself, what other healing artists have experienced with their own cats and dogs. You’re never alone with my book.
After you complete the Whole Pet Diet eight-week program, you’ll be able to use your journal as a handy reference tool. It’s my hope that many a useful page will be dog-eared so that you can easily find the recipes and remedies you’ll need. Chances are you already know your pet needs my eight-week plan. But if you’re still not sure, please take the following quiz.
