Here at The Conscious Cat, we’re all about health and  happiness for cats and their humans, and we also believe that cats can teach us a lot about living a healthy, happy life. In Dog as My Doctor, Cat as My Nurse: An Animal Lover’s Guide to a Healthy, Happy, and Extraordinary Life, animal-human health expert Carlyn Montes de Oca explores how our relationship with our furry family members holds the keys to optimal health.

The book is organized into three sections: Healthy Body, Happy Mind, and Extraordinary Spirit. From eating and sleeping better to being mindful about the thoughts we think and the words we use, to stepping out of our comfort zone and learning to forgive, the author explores the many unique and often unexpected ways in which our animal companions enrich our lives.

In addition to plenty of practical tips, the book also offers real life stories (including the author’s own) illustrating each section. The insights shared in both the book and the stories will have you look at your relationship with your cats in a whole new way.

Heartwarming, thought-provoking and inspirational, this book gives new meaning to the term “whole health,” taking the concept beyond just body, mind and spirit to include our animal companions.
