About: Your Pet, Your Pill is broken up into three distinct parts, Part 1 (Pets and happiness), Part 2 (Pets and health) and Part 3 – (Pets and success.)
The book demonstrates how our pets can help us to find ourselves again. We can improve ourselves tremendously when we look at pets as our guide, help, support and idol. Their unconditional love and the incredible joy of being present in the moment are the foundation for our lives and our relationship with others. Pets can heal us so deeply that they are our best medicines for love, for laughter, for happiness, for joy, for health, and for success.
Review: As someone who is a massive pet lover, I was so excited to receive this book. When it arrived, I couldn’t wait to start reading it.
For me, pets really are a special part in my life. I couldn’t imagine not having them. They bring us joy and can comfort us during those hard times. I’m not sure how I would have coped growing up, if I didn’t have my dogs to play with, to cry with, they were a huge help in making me who I am today.
This is something which is made even more evident in the book, it’s not just me who has relied on my pets growing up, but a lot of other people.
The 101 inspirational stories that are detailed in this book, discuss the impact that many animals have had on people’s lives. How they have helped, why they have helped and what they did to help.
With the way the world is going at the moment, the uncertainty in the world, having this glimmer of hope, this joy to read about in the books was exactly what I needed. From horses to parrots, Dr. Muller covers it all and manages to bring out the most touching moments in each owner’s life with his/her pet.
And to be honest, I loved that. I found myself smiling as I read this book before bed or just before work in the morning, and it just made the day seem that much more bearable.
I can completely understand the ways that people described their pets. There’s just a connection between your pet and yourself that is so special. From my own experiences, I have raised 3 kittens from when they were just 2 weeks old, and from the moment they were rescued and brought to me and my family, we can’t imagine life without them. Their just the most recent rescues to join my family, growing up, since my Dad was also a vet, we looked after so many amazing and incredible animals in our home.
I’m so grateful to Dr. Margit Gabriele Muller for writing this book though and I’m so pleased that I was able to read it. This is a book that I highly recommend to everyone.
If you are an animal lover then you will surely love this book.
If you are in need of something a little bit inspirational, something that will make you laugh and make you cry, that will put you on the spot and go wow what a book, then this is the book for you.
To sum up, here’s what I loved about the book:
- it’s inspirational (a definite plus, particularly with how everything is going on in the world today)
- the stories are well written
- I feel that I can read this book again with ease
- the stories are short and impressive, I was able to connect and understand each one perfectly
- it also came with a useful workbook to help with deeper reflection on how pets can transform our lives
The only thing that I will say, is that I had to read this book in sections. I loved it, and I enjoyed that I could read one story here and there. But I did need a break from time to time. Not because it was bad (clearly I think this book is great), but I wanted to take things slow and really appreciate every story told, and make sure that I got the most out of it.
This is a book I highly recommend! So please, if you are in need of a new book to read, give this one a go. You won’t regret it!
