Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, . Ensuing chapters on 'Fat Planet' and so on offer hundreds if not a thousand examples of how human and animal health relate.

Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, . earned her degrees at Harvard and the University of California, San Francisco. She is a cardiology professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and serves on the medical advisory board of the Los Angeles Zoo as a cardiovascular consultant. Her writing has appeared in many scientific and medical publications. We all get diseases, and for most of the ‘civilization diseases’ that comprise 80% of a physician’s practice the author intimates that it’s indeed better to go see a vet.

Natterson-Horowitz and science writer Kathryn Bowers have dubbed this pan-species approach to medicine zoobiquity. Here, they present a revelatory understanding of what animals can teach us about the human body and mind, exploring how animal and human commonality can be used to diagnose, treat, and heal patients of all species.

Join us as they present a revelatory understanding of what animals can teach us about the human body and mind, exploring how animal and human commonality can be used to diagnose, treat, and heal patients of all species. It has often been said that the love of a dog is the closest thing to divine love we will ever receive in this world. To honor that, our show will highlight the unique human/canine connection by speaking of the strengths, sorrows and stories of purpose that dogs bring to our lives.

Get breast cancer? Have fainting spells? Inspired by an eye-opening consultation at the Los Angeles Zoo, which revealed that a monkey experienced the same symptoms of heart failure as her human patients, cardiologist Barbara Natterson-Horowitz embarked upon a project that would reshape how she practiced medicine. Beginning with the above questions, she began informally researching every affliction that she encountered in humans to learn whether it happened with animals, too. And usually, it did: dinosaurs suffered from brain cancer, koalas can catch chlamydia, reindeer seek narcotic escape in hallucinogenic mushrooms, stallions self-mutilate, and gorillas experience clinical depression.

I wrote once 'Sick? Go to a Vet' because veterinarians take a holistic approach, don't get bogged in dialogue with patients but attend to symptoms, care less for fancy disease names and more for practical cures, and, after all, physicians are limited in treating only one species of animals. In 2007 in East Lansing, MI, at my alma mater MSU, the respective presidents of the American Medical Association (AMA) and American Veterinary Association (AVMA) met and laid out a campaign to raise physician & public awareness of the very thin line between human and animal medicine. It didn’t reach much further than the city limits. It's a fact that veterinarians as part of continuing education study human cases but the opposite is rarely true. Today I read an exciting exception in Discover Magazine’s ‘Book of the Year’ Zoobiquity: The Astonishing Connection Between Human and Animal Health by Barbara Natterson-Horowitz

The author is a cardiologist and psychiatrist who moonlights at zoos. She noted over the years the similarities among species including us two-legged ones and has collected oddball case histories. Some are a bit detailed for the layman since, after all, it’s written by a physician, however the strange parallels are worth the read. The second chapter on 'Feint of Heart' draws on about robins and generals fainting in the heat of battle, the third chapter is 'Jews, Jaguars & Jurassic Park', and in the fourth ‘Roar-gasm’ we learn that stallions at stud farms are allowed three stands to get the job done and then they're kicked out, just like the johns facing alarm clocks on Times Square. Ensuing chapters on 'Fat Planet' and so on offer hundreds if not a thousand examples of how human and animal health relate. We all get diseases, and for most of the ‘civilization diseases’ that comprise 80% of a physician’s practice the author intimates that it’s indeed better to go see a vet.

I give this book four 'stars' to a physician and fine author for the courage to rear on her hind legs and point out to colleges and readers the benefits of studying animal medicine to cure ourselves. One drawback is the book follows what I call the 90-10 rule which so many genius-crackpot offer that 90% of the evidence cases presented are false comparisons while the other 10% are astonishingly refreshing insights. It's up to the reader to distinguish which is which.

Another book that those who have no knowledge of biological or animal sciences will find fascinating and amazing. Well written and an easy read this is good for young people being introduced to biology for the first time to pique their interest. Also good for vet students or those interested in animal sciences as it does draw interesting conclusions about how veterinarians are sometimes much more flexible and capable than human vets as they are forced to care for hundreds of difference species.

However, if you are already well versed in human and animal evolution not much in this book will be new to you. Still a fun read, just will not have the meaty content you are looking for.

Deeply researched, easily-read, and full of startling new information about how close we are to the animal world. Aren't we
all One, as the prophets declared? Unfortunate convoluted title (Zoobiquity) which is cute but doesn't make you to pick up
the book and read it. Yet it should be read by everyone interested in health, the survival of the species (ourselves included), and
new medical breakthroughs about cancer, heart disease, etc. After this book, I have greater respect for veterinarians and their
work. Society has put them on a lower rung than our over-specialized medical doctors. This is unfortunate, as the two disciplines should draw closer and learn from each other. Not only is this book an eve-opener, but I hope it will start a much needed dialogue on how much like animals we really are.

I was engaged immediately from the first chapter with the concept of how animals perceive a human stare. The amount of research, insight and interpretation is more than amazing. Instead of repeating the words and concepts of this book, I suggest that you purchase it and either read or listen because the information is so interesting. The stories are fascinating and I now look at every animal on this planet with a different eye. Living things have inhabited the earth long before we developed as humans and the authors of this book have shared years of hard work to communicate in words what animals do without them. Thank you for a book that changed my life and perspective on the world.

Well-written, nicely researched, easy to read. Unsure if it really gives full credit to veterinarians as we are still in the shadows of human medicine - though this may be due to Big Pharma and insurance company money and control factors. Loved the final chapter with West Nile Virus and the CDC not wanting to be wrong. I was hoping this book was going to go a bit further: Besides pill/techno medicine, there is the indescribable, magical healing powers of the human-animal bond. By sheer existence of it, this bond saves/extends/enriches lives far beyond western medicine.

Natterson-Horowitz and Bowers discuss the neglected insights that human docs could gain from the diseases and treatments of mammals, birds, reptiles, insects, spiders, and microorganisms. With well written accounts of addiction, defense mechanisms, diet, feeding disorders, self-injury, adolescence, STDs, and sex. The authors take an evolutionary view of aberrant behavior often claiming that behavior disorders are misplaced adaptations. If you are interested in biology and medicine you will love reading this book. If you are practicing medicine on humans it is bound to change your perspective. If you are a veterinarian it will make you proud.

Zoobiquity is an important book that should be in the hands of every Medical Doctor. Veterinarians are aware of multiple species but the medical doctors need to understand that there is more to learn from the life that surrounds us and by working together we can achieve better outcomes for people. Anything less is foolish. Well written, easy to read, this book works on multiple levels, for the medical professional in human or animal medicine and for the patients or potential patients. We owe it to ourselves to educate ourselves and others.
