What the experts are saying:
I absolutely love this book! The Veterinary Clinical Reference Guide is my Bible. The first section gives a breakdown of each of the Standard Process Veterinary Formulas, with ingredient information and details for practical application. Understanding the concept behind each product will not only assist you in choosing the optimal product for each case, but also will help you confidently explain to pet owners the importance of why their pets will benefit from whole-food nutritional support.
Part two of the Veterinary Clinical Reference Guide also provides information on over 130 of the human products commonly suggested for dogs and cats. I refer to this section daily for product dosages, patient applications, additional products to consider, and product descriptions. Make sure you have this indispensable tool. I bet you will utilize this book every day!
Dr. Carsten’s approach is based in his clinical experience using nutrition and whole food concentrates as therapeutic tools. This book is “primarily directed toward simplifying the overwhelming amounts of nutritional data so that useful clinical decisions can be made. Secondly, it attempts to aid the clinician in deciphering the often contradictory statements and claims made by advocates and adversaries of applied clinical nutrition. This will be accomplished by discussing the differences between synthetic vitamins and whole vitamin complexes, aqueous cytosol extracts, protomorphogens, digestive products, and whole desiccated products.”
