Learn How to Heal Your Dogs & Cats

Veterinarian Dr. Dennis Thomas Tells You on Gab with the Gurus How Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs & Good Nutrition Help Your Pets

Although centuries ago, dogs weren’t considered man’s best friend, in recent times, pets have become wildly popular.


In the United States alone, people own some 70 to 80 million dogs and 74 to 96 million cats, which means 37 to 47 percent of U.S. households have a dog, and 30 to 37% own a cat, according to the American Pet Products Association.

You pet owners have other reasons to rejoice.  Appreciating and playing with your canine or feline friend improves your health.

In fact, touching or stroking your furry friends could help reduce your stress (even positively affecting your cortisol, heart rate and blood pressure), improve your mental and physical health, reduce your aggression, and activate the much-touted hormone oxytocin, according to a recent review of research.

Oxytocin, as you may already know, is the much-acclaimed love hormone or cuddle chemical, which is released during sex or breastfeeding.

If pets are so good for us, it makes sense to take good care of them, right?

On today’s special Gab with the Gurus Show, my guest, Dr. Dennis Thomas, a long-time veterinarian and author of the new Hay House book, Whole-Pet Healing: A Head-to-Tail Guide to Caring for and Connecting with Your Animal Companion will tell you how to take the very best care of your beloved pet.

Whole-Pet Healing_On our Gab with the Gurus Show, Dr. Thomas will share some of his fascinating findings and tips, which he discusses in further detail in Whole-Pet Healing.

Now, I’m author of the expose, Sugar Shock (Berkley Books, 2006) and Beyond Sugar Shock (Hay House, 2012), which gives you a simple, proven plan to kick sweets. My next book, Crush Your Crazy Cravings™ -- which I'm now completing -- will give you easy, tested tools to squash your cravings for sugar, salt and fatty foods.
