“Before the word holistic became integral to veterinary medicine and practice, Dr. McCutcheon was already there.”    —Dr. Michael W. Fox, veterinarian, animal behaviorist, and author of The Healing Touch for Cats and Dog Body, Dog Mind
“Dr. Paul McCutcheon is always ahead of the pack when it comes to the health and wellness of animals. This book is just another example of this extraordinary veterinarian’s forward thinking.”    —Ann Rohmer, host of Animal House Calls
