This book is very well organized and extremely easy to understand for the layman. Using the techniques suggested in the book I was able to cure my 12 year old cat from a 2 year bout with diabetes. The book descibes a variety of natural healing techniques that can be employed to deal with a wide range of ailments that pets often contract. There's no hocus pocus about this book, it's strictly a how to do it manual. I heartily recommend this book to anyone with an open mind to the power of herbs, acupuncture, massage and good nutrition.
I ran across this book when my elderly dog was diagnosed with a heart murmur and heart disease. When conventional medicine couldn't help I decided to give natural medicine a try. I used some of the remedies suggested for heart disease and was frankly astounded at his improvement. We were very happy to have him with us for 5 more years than I expected. The book is easy to understand and ailments and their remedies are listed in alphabetical order in the back of the book. This is really a must have for every dog and cat owner that wants to find out how they can improve the health of their pet naturally.
I purchased this book thinking that it would give me simple at home remedies (like cooking white rice and chicken for digestive ailments)...Um, not quite.It is definitely "holistic", meaning most, if not all, the remedies call for ingredients not found in the typical (even holistic) household. Fresh/ Raw Bayberry, Bach flowers, Red Clover, Calendula, Devil's Claw, Goldenseal etc - not the liquids or pills, but the fresh herbs. Sorry, but I don't have fresh herbs just laying around the house and you can't find them at your local health food store either.Needless, to say I haven't tried any of the remedies, but I have found it useful for info purposes. For instance, the book recc putting boiled Calendula on wounds. Instead I bought a Calendula salve/ointmet and use it for minor cuts for my pet and I. The chapter on dog food/diet is very imformative, and my pet is living proof of what a good dog food can do for your pet.I think this book would be a good resource for a family that has tried "conventional vet" medicine with no relief, and is looking for an alternative form of disease treatment.PS- If this review helped you please vote for it...
Although I do have a background in science (pre vet sciences and more), and holistic methods (started with me then kidney failure in cat due to misinformed diet information from "main stream" vets) I started researching and found this book along with others. (Dr. Pitcairn's for example)Highly informative, and although another on this thread mentioned too complex - well nutrition and healing methods are not simple and need some "home work" as with anything. (although I do have to admit when a pet is sick, one does want assistance, and now here in NYC there are holistic vet. One can go in informed, educated and with best interest of pet cared for thanks to books such as this one.That said - I found her book well laid out, highly educational and well referenced with links to other resources.
Because its a book my mom has had and used for over 20 years. ...our cat didn't make it as she had cancer stage 4 before we ever even knew about it. But it has amazing and wonderful chapters on so many topics. ..it has been placed on the book shelves for when my nana who is 88 is ready to get another cat as this loss was very devastating for her
I have had this book for many years. It is so helpful for those of us that do alternative therapy Diane Stein is an awesome writer all of her books are wonderful
