There should be some minus star ratings, but since I had to pick one, I picked the lowest available.

STOP, never, never use fabric softener on your dog's coat. You will poison him slowly; it doesn't matter how much you have diluted it. The dog will lick his fur. Never, never use Pine-Sol, or any pine product on your rugs, or floors if you have cats. Pine is highly toxic to cats. Cats quickly absorb every chemical they come into contact with through their skin; once they have absorbed the chemical you cannot get it out even if they are smart enough not to lick it. They will, however, lick their paws. Dried Pine-Sol (which you can smell) is still on your floor, or rug. I will update this review with more caveats when I finish this book. These, however, stood out to me.

I promised more caveats after having read the entire book. Having finished this appalling excuse for a DIY help book for pets, I can only say throw the book on the fire, and join a posse to string up the author, whose advice probably already has poisoned innumerable pets. There is just too much advice everywhere about administering OTC medicines, herbs, and household chemicals to cats and dogs. Some of the things sound innocuous, because they are things that would not harm us, but will effectively kill your pet.

Here are a few examples: The idiot author says to put onion juice down to deter cats from playing in, or using an area. He says cats hate the smell and will avoid the area. The fact is that many cats will lick food with, or eat onion flavored anything. Onions cause an anemia in cats that if not treated promptly will cause death. If a cat steps on the onion juice treated carpet, he is still going to ingest it when he cleans his paws.

Lots of good content here and I liked the "Get your pet to the vet" boxes that advise when not to attempt home remedies. That said, the brand-name thing gets old in a hurry if you are trying to read the book through to see what is there. Some brands may indeed have special virtues, but I can't believe that the brand of vinegar or baking soda, for instance, makes a lot of difference.

Useful as a reference book on your pet care shelf.

Amazing money saving and eco friendly pet care product most of us have in our homes. I found something I needed right of the bat, How to keep dogs from dropping presents in your yard- cayenne pepper ! It worked, the spot was not visited again. I actually got giddy with all the great tips for every kind of animal. We are a family of animal lovers and have spent a fortune on basic need items. Here I found cheap and easy ways to clean spots, kill fleas, and care for many different kinds of animals without buying those expensive specialized store items. I think it is a book every animal owner should have on their shelf.

Any moron who recommends a toxic product like Downy Fabric Softener to be wiped onto the fur of your pet to keep it soft (idiotic!) has no sense of the real world, and how evil this is to do to a pet. I've never heard of anything so stupid. I did not order or read the book - I'm going by the samplings from Rodale Books that were supposed to lure me to it. That one stood out to me the most. There might be some safe and good tricks, but please be aware of what chemicals you're exposing your pets to. Other "lures" in their advertising: Vicks VapoRub...Campbell's Beef Broth (high salt content?)....Crisco shortening?...all suspect to me. I'm just saying, be aware of what your exposing your pets to.

I wouldn't be without this book. I was so totally blown away with all of the information in it I started telling friends and relatives about it right away. Some of them have already purchased the book after glancing through mine. The cures are easy, inexpensive and have saved me trips to the vet already. I would recommend this book to everyone. Joey has sections for all kinds of pets including dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and more.

I would love to know which vet school this author went to! Dawn dishwashing soap should not be used to wash animals routinely - yes its an excellent degreaser - BUT your pets need those oils in their coat and skin to protect themselves. Vodka down your pets ears - GREAT! unless the ear drum is damaged and you cause permanent damage to your pets hearing and balance center. I'm sure you're not going to get Joey Green's veterinary license revoked for that dumb idea. If a household cleaner actually killed fleas, there wouldn't be a multi-billion dollar flea treatment market. Here's an amazing cure... save your pennies for the vet!

Not what I expected and there was too much product pushing. Had some good remedies, but in general not worth the money.

Good info and ways to fix some of the problems your pet (even reptiles) might be having. Will save some money by not going to the vet!
