A full-color, practical handbook on the bioenergetics of animal healing, with case studies to showcase the effects of vibrational medicine * 2020 Coalition of Visionary Resources Gold Award and Industry Choice and Peoples Choice Award * Reveals how to work with the energy fields, auras, and chakras of horses, cats, and dogs * Demonstrates how to use High Sense Perception (HSP) in relation to an animal, illustrating what happens in the energy fields of a human being and an animal when they connect telepathically * Details how zoopharmacognosy, or animal self-selection of remedies such as essential oils, can assist in promoting emotional release and physical healing Vibrational medicine offers a natural, effective, and hands-on response to animal ailments and disturbances. In the absence of a shared language of "words," energetic healing can connect a human more closely to an animal while at the same time working on the physical body, the chakras, and the different layers of the animal's aura or energy field. In this book, animal communicator and healer Diane Budd shares her intriguing journey, research, and experience of working with animals energetically. She explains how, together with a healer colleague, she set out to document the effects of animal communication and healing on the energy field of the animal and the communicator, which led to further in-depth research. Detailing her findings, she reveals how to work with the energy fields, auras, and chakras of horses, cats, and dogs as well as what benefits energetic healing work can offer to animals. Sharing many case studies from her healing practice, the author explores what High Sense Perception (HSP) reveals about the relationship between an animal and human and how to make sense of what you are receiving on an intuitive level. Full-color illustrations clearly show the energy field, the energy flow between animals' chakras, and what happens in the energy fields of a human being and an animal when they connect telepathically. The illustrations also help guide you, step-by-step, through the use of the healing tools and practices described. The author explains how zoopharmacognosy--animal self-selection of remedies such as essential oils or herbs--can support emotional release and physical healing, not only for animals but for humans too. She details animal personality types and their soul evolvement levels and explores the influence of an animal's past life on present-day issues, whether it be a past-life connection with the current owner or an issue the animal needs to work with in this present lifetime. Full of animal communication stories and ground-breaking research on animal energy fields, this book shows how, just as we humans are all here on this earthly plane to learn and grow, so are our animals.

Nutrient management is an important aspect of feeding livestock and poultry. Today, there is more attention directed toward this issue in animal production than ever before. The heightened awareness of the environmental impacts associated with animal production has caused animal nutritionists to refocus their thoughts, practices, and expectations regarding how nutrients are supplied to animals. In addition, the increase in the size and intensity of modern production units demands new technologies for enhancing nutrient utilization and for reducing the amount of nutrients excreted. Covering these issues and more, Nutrient Management of Food Animals to Enhance and Protect the Environment is a reference tool for agricultural industry leaders, private practitioners, government agencies, and researchers.

The funny, touching and entertaining story of how Jo Hardy, the star of BBC2's Young Vets, gets to grips with animals big and small, friendly and not-at-all-happy, on the road to becoming a fully qualified vet. `Stand well clear. Keep your eyes on them. Oh, and make sure you have insurance.' Not the most comforting words of wisdom, but probably the most useful for a trainee vet, Jo would say. From well-equipped surgeries to windswept hills and ramshackle barns, Jo has to be able to diagnose and treat any animal, at any time of the day or night. It's not quite as easy as James Herriot made it seem. Jo's final year of training saw her race from rectal examinations of cows to spine surgery on a Great Dane, and from treating an eventing horse with a heart problem to inserting a contraceptive implant into a monkey. And then there were the owners - the tough guy who sobbed when his cat was diagnosed with cancer, the woman who was convinced her dog was embarrassed by its stomach upset, and the farmer who loved his cows as much as anyone loves their pets. Gruelling days of animal treatments and visits combined with long nights of study and revision made Jo's final year of training the most demanding and rewarding year of her life. Her book tells of the highs and lows, the pets that stole her heart, and the lifelong friends that she made - with two legs and four.

Sabine Stuewer has been observing horses for years - when they are alone and in groups. Her images are an indulgent visual treat, revealing the pure beauty of horses and their connection to their environment and their companions. Emmanuelle Brengard interprets the horses' behaviours - one minute calmly grazing, in a frenzied gallop the next, grooming each other, nuzzling a foal, battling for a mate - giving horse lovers a better understanding of the animal. The book's sections are: In the Harem - the harem family of about 10 (a stallion and his mares and foals), social order; The Stallion - charisma, postures, fights between males, reproduction; Mares and Foals - birth, educating the foals, foal games; The Nuances of Friendship - hierarchy, games among adults; The Partnerships - mares and foals, resting and sleep, adults protecting the herd and grooming; Gallop to Freedom - photo gallery; Finely Honed Senses - smell, sight, taste, hearing, communication, the gaits; Fits of Madness - jumps and leaps to release stress and energy, and to stretch. Those who ride horses will tell you that they are complex animals possessing a wide range of behaviours. It can take years of watching and being with horses to truly understand them. The Horse brings a closer view to their world in a new way, one that is possible only with the authors' decades of experience observing, photographing and interacting with the charismatic horse. Already remarkable value as a hardback, this paperback is now even more outstanding. It is an exceptional and personally meaningful selection for equestrians, breeders, casual riders, artists and photographers, and all who love horses for their character and beauty.

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Helvetica} In the United States alone, it is estimated that almost 150,000 horses per year are unwanted. This number grows exponentially when you consider horses worldwide. What is 'unwanted'? The term is used to refer to horses that are old, injured, sick, unmanageable, or fail to meet expectations. The horse may have a lameness or illness...or he could just be the wrong colour or gender. His problem could be life-threatening...or chronic and manageable. He may have a mild behavioural problem... or a severe one. The good news is, today, more and more individuals are choosing to give an unwanted horse a second chance. Whether through purchase, adoption, or rescue, the horse in the 'wrong' situation has a chance to find his way to the 'right one'. Dr. Stacie Boswell's goal is to restore health and comfort to every horse in transition, and to help him learn how to function as the horse he is expected to be - from the Thoroughbred off the track to the grade pony from the field down the road. She has compiled hundreds of case studies highlighting the areas of concern in the horse 'in need', and in these pages details proactive methods of handling common medical problems and health issues, from nutrition and dentistry to deworming and hoofcare to traumatic injury and emergency rescue scenarios. Dr. Boswell then explains the ways that, as a new horse is rehabilitated physically, specific training techniques can help him adapt to the positive changes in his care and environment.
