It’s not often you find a vet like Dr. Andrea Tasi, who knew even before vet school that she’d do an all-feline practice. What makes her unique, though, is that she shifted her practice to fully homeopathic and that changed everything.
Join us as Dr. Tasi speaks to the uniqueness of this species, the challenges they face in “domestication” (Ha! Let’s use that word loosely), being both a predator and prey simultaneously, the challenges of homeopathy, and how to interpret litter box troubles, the area that leads many cats to be given up for adoption. It need not be so!

All of Pam Johnson Bennett’s books are great too:
THINK LIKE A CAT, CAT WISE, and CAT VS CAT: KEEPING PEACE WHEN YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE CAT are great references. CAT VS CAT has just come out in a newly revised edition.

My favorite litter is Dr. Elsey’s ULTRA litter. His family owned company makes many nice products including foods (because I know it is pie in the sky that everyone can feed a raw food diet):
Nice high sided/uncovered litter boxes made out of recycled plastic:
IMPORTANT: Dr. Tasi’s practice is all local and is full. She doesn’t offer phone consulting. BUT, that doesn’t mean you can’t find an excellent homeopathic vet to help your cats, dogs, horses, what ever!
Simply visit my Recommended Resources page, scroll down to the AVH list and watch the video on my “vetted process” for choosing a good, well qualified homeopathic vet. Distance matters not a lick to get good work done.
Thanks for listening!
