Dr. Kidd's book gave me the information that I needed to make informed decisions about my dog's care and treatment. He has a practical approach and an understanding of what the concerned owner needs to know and what I can do - PLUS - he includes stories to illustrate his points - and, it's fun to read. This is a MUST HAVE book for all dog owners!!!

I'm really excited to try some of the stuff in this book! Which says something. I run an herb shop, and have read *lots * of herb books, but am just getting in to using herbs for my pets. This is a great book to get started on this info. I've got several pages bookmarked and am going to use the info on a daily basis, I can tell......overall, a good beginning book, highly recommended. Easy to read and full of good quality information.

Format: Paperback
This book has been a great resource and I love it but there are a few issues that I had when I tried to find the references that he had in the back (web pages only). Since the book was published it seems that his personal web site which he refers to in the first couple pages does not exist anymore as well as a few of the other web sites that he posted. Also I came across a couple of addresses that were totally incorrect. It made me a little bit nervious so I got online to see if I could find anyone to report this too but was unable to find anything recent pertaining to the author. I did however find a few sites that cited him in their own editorials and in those sites I found conflicting information to what I had read in the book. In my college years I learned not to trust the internet as a very high resource in most cases but when there is a significant amount of conflicting information usually this suggests something isn't quite right.

Again I want to make perfectly clear that this is a very informative book but also I would defentally recommend finding another book that is of the same or similar topic and read that as well. Also consult a holistic vet if you have any questions! I have actually found that some of the things I have read I have actually started applying to my own life and the book was just an all around good reminder of good heath for both my dog and myself! It is also very possible being that the internet is a "living, growing, every changing" device that these web sites have just dissapeared since the book was written or changed addresses to something more appropiate than what was previously being used.

This book is a vital addition to my herbal library. The information is clearly organized and easily understood for beginners. However, if you have both dogs and cats and are thinking about buying both Dr. Kidd's Guide to Herbal Dog Care and Herbal Cat Care books, there really isn't much difference between the two books.

Love this book. I love this author/veterinarian. Concise, to the point, informative and very helpful without being
overwhelming. I love this vet's history and his love of natural care for dogs and cats.
