Keeping your cats (and dogs!) healthy and happy by preventing and resolving behavior, nutrition, and health issues through holistic, “mind-body” methods.

Holistic veterinarian and author Dr. Jean Hofve has 20 years’ experience in conventional and alternative veterinary medicine. She has a passion for feline health and nutrition; she has intensively studied and researched pet nutrition and the pet food industry since the early 1990s. She is recognized as an expert on pet food, having written dozens of articles and been interviewed for print, radio, and television around the world. In 1995, she founded Spirit Essences (now owned and operated by Jackson Galaxy), which makes flower essence remedies for many animal health and behavior problems. Her first book, The Complete Guide to Holistic Cat Care: An Illustrated Handbook, co-authored with nutritionist Dr. Celeste Yarnall, won a 2010 Certificate of Excellence as well as the 2010 Muse Medallion Award for best book from the Cat Writers’ Association
