Lovely compassionate book exploring our ancient link with the animal world and how pets may take on our own problems. Whilst the emphasis is on emotional problems such as fear there is a chapter on physical ailments, with interesting cases. All possible phases of an animal's life are covered - from its first introduction into a human family and settling in, through ageing, slowing down and dying. En route, issues such as grieving, stress & depression, breeding and fertility and animal spirituality are covered with great sensitivity. A lovely and very helpful book for anyone caring for animals.
