Your Pet, Your Pill provides a hundred stories that show how our pets help us live happier and healthier lives. What inspired you to write this book?
My pets have always been rays of sunshine and hope who understood me and helped me to carry on as strong pillars of my life. I’ve also been able to overcome many seemingly insurmountable obstacles in my private and professional life through the unwavering support and unconditional love of my pets. Based on that I wanted to inspire other people to understand the incredible positive impact our pets have on our lives. But it is not just about what we think our pets can help us in our lives as everything in Your Pet, Your Pill is based on science and research. My intention was to remove any doubts of personal bias among my readership about those incredible values. For that reason I have researched hundreds of scientific articles and information to create a strong foundation for my stories as thought-provoking support. The combination of a wide variety of profound research in easily digestible way with amazing stories makes Your Pet, Your Pill so unique. My wish is that my book is a motivating and inspiring testimony that our pets can indeed enrich our lives beyond imagination and help people of all walks of life.
You are a doctor of Veterinary Medicine with more than 25 years of experience in the field. How has your experience helped you write this book?
Being an doctor of Veterinary Medicine with such a long and divers experience with lots of different animals and pet owners, this experience has opened for me a completely different way of thinking and looking at our beloved pets. My personal journey with my own pets from early childhood onwards was complimented by those beautiful stories among my relatives, friends, acquaintances and patients. This has helped me to gain a much deeper and broader understanding and reflection what our pets can do for us in so many different ways for HSH – Health, Success and Happiness. Due to my professional background as veterinarian and life coach I have witnessed firsthand the multiple blessings our pets can bring to us to heal ourselves, not just physically but also our minds and our souls.
Pet improve us in many ways. Some are obvious, like improving our mood, but other surprised me, like detecting cancer. Was there anything that surprised you when doing research for this book?
I knew a lot of things that pets can do for us to help and heal us but what completely surprised me was their tremendously positive impact on our personal and professional lives. Pets help to shape and improve our character traits to a huge extent that enables us to build strong positive relationships with other people and to advance in our personal and professional lives. They even support us in developing skills and abilities that we require for our professional success. Those findings were very amazing as it goes far beyond our common understanding of how pets can improve our lives.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
I have just published Your Pet, Your Pill’s accompanying companion book Your Pet, Your Pill® Workbook. A Self-Discovery Guide About How Pets Lead You to a Happy, Healthy and Successful Life. This book is a real self-discovery workbook with a lot of exercises and activities. It shall provide a guide to deeper reflection and insight for my readers who might be in a difficult time of their lives and need a structured way to dive into their feelings, hearts and souls. I am also working on the next book as part of my Your Pet, Your Pill series and hope to finish it be end of the next year. There is still so much to be said about our wonderful pets and animals that can motivate and inspire my readers. I would also like to encourage my readers to share their personal stories with me for my next book and to become a part of the Your Pet, Your Pill community because I am looking to let people learn from other people’s experience in different aspects.
