Dustjacket has light shelfwear involving scuffing to jacket and two tiny edge tears, price sticker on rear. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; Modern medicine is now discovering the amazing power of animals to detect, treat, and cure a host of diseases and conditions. There are pets who can sniff out cancers that are undetectable to highly trained doctors with sophisticated medical equipment; others who can sense when their owner is about to have a heart attack, seizure, or panic attack; and many who provide a safe passage in the world for the physically or emotionally challenged. Increasingly, medicine is recognizing the special relationship between pets and people as one of the most powerful weapons in fighting disease and treating chronic conditions. In fact, many doctors are routinely "prescribing" pets for their patients. In The Healing Power of Pets, Dr. Marty Becker, Good Morning America's veterinary correspondent, blends revolutionary scientific discoveries with deeply moving, personal stories of pets and their owners.

He took Cougar, the eponymous big cat, home, introduced him to the more compact cats that already lived with him, and watched as the household adjusted, bit by bit, to the unlikely newcomer. Everyone eventually did. So, too, did the neighborhood dogs, and most of the neighbors--though a few, Raber writes grumpily, behaved in less than friendly ways when Cougar went out for a stroll or kept vigil in the bushes. All the while, Raber observed his new housemate's behavior, learning how to interpret Cougar's growls and purrs, and how to give Cougar the freedom to act naturally in an unnatural setting. Bringing Cougar into his home, Raber writes, "would refocus my priorities and change what I had considered important. ".... (415-noto)
