  1. Book Review: The Holistic Dog Book by Denise Flaim

    Book Review: The Holistic Dog Book
    by Denise Flaim

    This 264 page book is about looking outside the square, of asking questions, not swallowing everything you are told, of taking control yourself for your companion’s (the author prefers this to “pet’s”) health & wellbeing.
