Healing Our Pets 

Good Read

With all the human interest in complementary and alternative medicine, it was only a matter of time before people wondered if animals might benefit from these same treatments. Spokane veterinarian Dennis Thomas says he practiced traditional Western medicine for 30 years but became frustrated by "so many dead ends, so many limited opportunities." He was drawn to exploring the deep, but intangible, connection between people and their pets. That, and a desire to have "more tools in my box," led him to become certified in veterinary acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy, and eventually to approach animal care with an eye toward energy levels. While his ideas on the intersection of biology and quantum physics are undeniably avant-garde, his book Whole-Pet Healing offers alternatives for pets who just haven't been helped by traditional methods. His chapter on "Letting Go" may prove especially comforting.

Dennis Thomas will share his new book, Whole-Pet Healing, at Auntie's on Saturday, Aug. 15 at 7 pm.
