Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

In this practical and entertaining guide, the top veterinarians and animal experts in the country offer more than 1,000 effective tips for treating common pet problems, such as: allergies, bad breath, ear mites, fleas, itchy skin, paw problems, teething pain, weepy eyes, and wounds. But, much more than a guide to the physical and emotional problems of pets, The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Dogs and Cats also provides solutions to some of the toughest behavior problems, letting pet owners know when it is necessary to visit the vet--and what they can do until they get there. Since the health needs of dogs and cats are often entirely different, there are also specific tips for both cats and dogs, along with more than 75 easy-to-follow illustrations. Having this ultimate do-it-yourself pet-care book is like having a veterinarian on call 24 hours a day.

I is very informative.
J Alex
When your pet has a minor issue instead of running to an expensive vet you can use the home remedies in this book to solve the problem.
A. Cerqua
I love the fact that remedies include more natural solutions, which I prefer for my animals.

Thick book but not much info to show for it. Skip this one as there are much better books of this type out there. I thought this book would be full of at home remedies and detailed information on over the counter human medicine that is safe for pets and herbal treatments to try. However, it is as if the authors purposely decided to give scant and vague information sometimes leaving out dosage (so as not to let the door open for liability?). Another major problem with this book is that you have to go to each page referenced in the index to read about a given condition. For example, if you want to learn about keeping a dog's ears clean with home made preparations, you can find a quote from Dr. Degen on page 77, a snipet from Dr. Allen Paul on page 167, etc, etc. and then, a disclaimer on page 125 telling you not to use at home products but to see your vet and only use what your vet says. The chapter on dental care is all about gradually getting your pet to accept a brush by trying garlic salt and tuna fish water. At no point does the chapter ever get into any facts about what products to look for or make, what veterinarians think about different ingredients in products, etc. Just a collection of very general tips for approaching your dog's mouth. A collection of random, general snipets put together in a non-logical order earns this book one star. sp

I have three dogs and each is different, this book has given me lots of helpful hints. It gives you enough information to know when it's time to see a vet, or if you can handle a situation on your own. But never leads you to believe it takes the place of your vet. Loads of information for a dog or cat owner. I am very pleased with my choice.

A lot of what's in this book isn't very helpful. The remedies are all pretty basic and not very well explained on why you would do them. I work w/ animals and wouldn't recommend this book to any of the owners we see.

this book recently came in very handy. 1 of the 5 month old puppies was playing with his dad and daddy got a little to rough-the puppy got a renched neck-I didn't know how much apirin I was supposed to give him for the pain-but I rmembered I had this book so I looked under Apirin-then pain and it said 1/4 325miliigrams per 10lbs of body weight-since the puppy weighs about 45lbs I gave him a whole aspirin and after about 30min he was playing again like nothing was wrong.

We have a couple of animals - 2 dogs and 3 cats. This book has saved us so much time and stress and money! We are able to get an idea of what is wrong with our animals while waiting for our vet appointment. This takes a lot of the worry away from us knowing that there is no immediate danger. Our neighbors are amazingly envious of this book, so we are going to get each of the a copy when we move.

Very beneficial ....and covers so many health issues for dogs and cats.
The small price was surprising when you consider all of the information it contained.

Not what I expected. Was expecting home remedies but it is mostly advice and common sense that should already be known. I didn't want a dog training guide...I wanted alternative homeopathic information. The information typically leads to seeing a vet instead of recipes for home remedies.
