All You Ever Wanted to Know About Herbs for Pets

All You Ever Wanted to Know About Herbs for Pets by Mary Wulff-Tilford and Gregory L. Tilford is an indispensable resource for pet owners. This attractive, easy-to-read, yet comprehensive guide offers pet owners step-by-step instructions on how to find, prepare, and use herbs to treat common pet ailments.
The Tilfords' book introduces readers to hundreds of plant medicines that can be used in the daily care of animals. The authors, both herbalists, begin with a chapter on the principles and practices of herbalism, explaining the basics of herbal preparations and what they call the "ethical use of herbs." They discuss the connection between herbs and diet and give guidelines for feeding dogs and cats. The bulk of the book is a 191-page guide to herbs for animals. Each entry includes a description of the plant, its habitat and range, its cycle and bloom season, preparation, common uses, availability, and propagation and harvest techniques. Also included are a warning of its side effects--if any--and a photograph of the plant. There's a wealth of information here, enabling pet owners to select, prepare, and apply natural remedies, some of which may be growing in their own backyards.
