Publisher Comments:

Finally, a veterinarian's guide to complete herbal health care for your dog!

As a dog lover, you may have considered using herbs as part of your pet's health-care regimen. Perhaps you've wondered:

Are herbs really safe for se on my older dog?

Which plants are best for dogs with hot spots, hip dysplasia, and anxiety?

What's the best way to give my dog herbal remedies?

In this comprehensive guide, holistic veterinarian Randy Kidd offers through, up-to-date information on gentle, chemical-free treatments for preventive care as well as immediate health problems. He also explains how to choose, make, and administer the best herbal preparations, and he provides at-a-glance information on more than 40 versatile herbs that will help you keep your pooch healthy and happy through every stage of life.

Synopsis:

Natural and alternative methods of health care have become increasingly popular in recent years because they can benefit anyone, even pets!

Dr. Randy Kidd, a holistic veterinarian and herbalist, explains how herbs can be used as a practical, safe, and efficacious part of dog care. This guide to complete herbal care for dogs includes simple introductions to holistic dog care, how herbs work, dosage and potency, and methods for delivering herbs into a dog's system. Herbal Dog Care includes chapters on common ailments and how to address each of them herbally. Kidd covers preventive care, approaches for age-related problems, and the treatment of chronic conditions — from calming a nervous animal to getting rid of parasites, addressing urinary tract conditions to strengthening the teeth.
