Initially conceived after I viewed the documentary, “The Paw Project”, and became interested in researching the subject of declawing and the reasons this particular area of animal surgery was initially developed, and is offered to clients.
This book was written over a period of one year, and was edited by Dr. Jean Hofve, DVM – a veterinarian who has firsthand knowledge of the potential for complications of this surgery on cats.
Since any operation has risks, just like a person facing surgery wants to know all the facts prior to “going under the knife”, this book offers most all the facts a pet owner may want to learn prior to getting their cat declawed.
This book discusses the anatomy of cats, pain behavior unique to the feline species, the reasons people declaw, the procedure of declawing, health risks to the cat, post-operative outcomes, alternatives to declawing, in a respectful but factual manner – practically everything you may need to know about declawing, and will help you make an informed decision whether the risks are worth subjecting your loving pet to this surgery.and more. By the time you finish reading this book, you will have a more thorough understanding on declawing and why declawing can affect the health of your pet.

Healthy Weight, and Freedom from Illness by Nurturing His Inner Wolf
The newest book by award-winning authors Jean Hofve, DVM and Celeste Yarnall, PhD. The Paleo Dog Program isn’t just about diet. It’s also about the dog’s whole lifestyle. Many factors contribute to degeneration, aging, and the tragically short life span of so many of our dog breeds. Nobody needs to remind us that we’re all aging at a very rapid rate; our bodies are breaking down sooner, and we have a host of lifestyle diseases that are that are largely preventable: the so-called diseases of civilization, or diseases of affluence.
Our dogs are paying the price for that, too. Find out how to keep your dog healthy and happy with Paleo Dog, available at Amazon.com in paperback or Kindle version, or at your favorite bookseller! If you’d like an autographed copy from Dr. Celeste Yarnall, please contact her through Facebook.
Cat behaviorist and star of Animal Planet’s hit television show My Cat from Hell, Jackson Galaxy, a.k.a. “Cat Daddy,” isn’t what you might expect for a cat expert (as The New York Times noted, with his goatee and tattoos, he “looks like a Hells Angel”). Yet Galaxy’s ability to connect with even the most troubled felines — not to mention the stressed-out humans living in their wake — is awe-inspiring. In this book, Galaxy tells the poignant story of his thirteen-year relationship with a petite gray-and-white short-haired cat named Benny, and gives singular advice for living with, caring for, and loving the feline in your home.
When Benny arrived in his life, Galaxy was a down-and-out rock musician with not too much more going on than a part-time job at an animal shelter and a drug problem. Benny’s previous owner brought the cat to the shelter in a cardboard box to give him up. Benny had seen better days — his pelvis had just been shattered by the wheels of a car — and his owner insisted he’d been “unbondable” from day one. Nothing could have been further from the truth. An inspiring account of two broken beings who fixed each other, Cat Daddy is laced throughout with Galaxy’s amazing “Cat Mojo” advice for understanding what cats need most from us humans in order to live happier, healthier lives.
This comprehensive cat care guide from the star of the hit Animal Planet show “My Cat from Hell,” Jackson Galaxy, shows us how to eliminate feline behavioral problems by understanding cats’ instinctive behavior.
Cat Mojo is the confidence that cats exhibit when they are at ease in their environment and in touch with their natural instincts—to hunt, catch, kill, eat, groom, and sleep. Problems such as litter box avoidance and aggression arise when cats lack this confidence. Jackson Galaxy’s number one piece of advice to his clients is to help their cats harness their mojo.
This book is his most comprehensive guide yet to cat behavior and basic cat care, rooted in understanding cats better. From getting kittens off to the right start socially, to taking care of cats in their senior years, and everything in between, this book addresses the head-to-toe physical and emotional needs of cats—whether related to grooming, nutrition, play, or stress-free trips to the vet.
In this book, Jackson Galaxy, star of Animal Planet’s hit show My Cat from Hell, and Kate Benjamin, cat design wizard, show cat guardians everywhere how to use home design tricks to address everyday cat care issues. Does your feline friend like to pee everywhere but in his or her litter box? Does your kitty have a thing for your furniture that has left your beloved couch in tatters? Catify to Satisfy will show you how simple DIY design projects and hacks can help bring harmony back into your home. Featuring the amazing projects cat guardians from around the world have shared with Jackson and Kate—design strategies for solving even the most daunting kitty challenges—this book is the ultimate guide to creating a happy home for cat guardian and cat alike.
A New York Times bestseller! The star of Animal Planet’s hit television series My Cat from Hell, Jackson Galaxy, shows cat owners everywhere how to make their homes both cat-friendly and chic.
Cat owners know the struggles of creating living spaces that are both functional and stylish for owner and cat. Don’t just go to your local pet shop and adorn your home with unattractive cat towers and kitty beds.
