The Healing Art of Pet Parenthood


From Wikipedia: “Well into the 20th century, coal miners brought canaries into coal mines as an “early warning signal” for deadly, toxic gases. The birds, being more sensitive, would become sick before the miners, who would then have a chance to escape or put on protective respirators.”

Is it any wonder that with the “pre green” proliferation of chemical laden cleaning and laundry products, building supplies, and monthly flea poison treatments, that our pets are developing cancer at such an alarming rate? In addition to protecting one’s animal from constant exposure to a myriad of possible household carcinogens, our having to negotiate the constant recalls and dangers of an unregulated, processed pet food industry can be an overwhelming and depressing nightmare. But there’s also a deeper issue: when it comes to these everyday toxins that we have become so unconscious about or accepting of, have our cherished, innocent pets become our modern day canaries?

“There are MANY things we can do to prevent our beloved companion animals from ever getting cancer,” says the author of the recently published, THE HEALING ART OF PET PARENTHOOD.
When her 8-year old dog, aka: her adopted daughter, Buttons, was diagnosed with deadly carcinoma and given 6 weeks to live, Nadine M. Rosin launched a massive personal research campaign into the world of holistic medicine. She soon came to learn that “holistic” didn’t mean symptom treating with natural remedies or herbs in lieu of pharmaceutical drugs. Instead, it meant clearing her home environment of all possible toxins, cleansing Buttons’ entire system physically and emotionally, and then giving her the proper nutritional support so that Buttons’ body could do what an unburdened body does best: heal itself.

Buttons went on to thrive for another 11 years. Exactly 1 week before her 19th birthday, she died peacefully of old age in her mom’s loving arms.

THE HEALING ART OF PET PARENTHOOD is an engaging narrative and an easy, interesting way to glean all kinds of valuable information on ways you can help prevent your own 4-legged family members (and maybe even the 2-legged ones) from ever having to deal with this awful disease. This is not dry text, but rather, it reads like a good novel that you will find hard to put down. Rosin’s writing has been called “brave” as she not only reveals herself and her life with radical and refreshing honesty, but as she goes on to describe what many pet parents are hesitant to reveal- her profound, maternal love for one furry beast… her “heart dog.”

“When their time does come to pass on, it is okay to grieve deeply. For pet parents it is NEVER a matter of, “It’s just a dog (cat/etc.),”” Rosin says. In fact, Rosin holds this book as her personal mission- that of removing the words “it’s just a dog(cat/etc.)” from the lips of non pet parents everywhere. So you’re not just going to want to buy a copy for yourself, but one for every person you know who doesn’t understand how much you love your pet.

I invite you to journey with Nadine M. Rosin into the emotional healing and self-awareness she develops over 19 years through the unconditional love of her dog, Buttons. Learn how to give YOUR OWN beloved animal the best life possible by joining them as they explore the world of holistic pet care to successfully treat canine cancer. Experience how Nadine copes with grief and loss, and ultimately discovers a continued spiritual connection with Buttons after death. THE HEALING ART OF PET PARENTHOOD is her story. It is only one version of a story shared by millions of pet parents.
