Editorial Reviews

Review

"Green has more than 1,000 common-sense remedies to address everything from grooming to behavioural problems. For instance, . . . . Green has an organic plan for flea control: sprinkle crushed fennel seeds, which apparently repel the pests, in your pets' bedding. . . . Another trick to lessen gas: put a tennis ball in your pet's food bowl. 'The ball creates a minor obstacle that forces your pet to nose around the bowl, stop wolfing down his meal, and cease swallowing air, which is one of the causes of flatulence.'" -MacLean's

"Save time and money on your pet's care with tips from Joey Green's Amazing Pet Cures." -Prevention

"These creative solutions to everyday pet troubles utilize brand-name products that you probably have at home, so why run out to the store and spend a lot of money when you may have the solution right in your pantry! While Green's pet solutions and suggestions are offbeat and imaginative, they are, in fact, highly effective.  He also thinks of products you most likely already have in your home." -Animal Radio Show

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.

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.

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.

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 bought 3 of this book to give as gifts and at a lot cheaper price from Amazon than I would have had to pay threw the mail advertisements. They wanted 4 payments of $7.99 plus shipping and handling. This book is well worth the price I have use so many of the tips already and plan on using more.You know how you sometimes have a musty pet smell on your furniture or carpet well, I used Pine-Sol (page 209)to deodorize pet odors put 1/4c Pine-Sol into a 16oz trigger-spray bottle filled with water. Be sure to shake it good then spray it lightly on carpets and upholstered furniture. After, it dried I ran the carpet sweeper and furniture brush over the carpet and furniture; it doesn't say to do that I just do. It leaves my house smelling fantastic and I love Pine-Sol I always mop my floors with it. If you have a rabbit you can clean your bunny or any of your animals and get rid of loose hairs by wiping them with a hypoallergenic fragrance-free Huggies Baby Wipe. It works great (page 221). You can use butter or oil on your pets paws once in awhile to help with hairballs. FLEAS grr! (page 110)I know this works cause I have been doing it for over 50 years now -Sprinkle about a tsp of brewer's yeast and/or garlic powder over your pets food. I have not had to buy any chemical products since I have been doing this. And I do have to worry about bringing the fleas in from my yard or open porch where I see stray cats, squirrels, raccoons, possums and skunk all scratching their selves. But, knock on wood my babies are free of fleas. I even rub the yeast and powder on them once in a while to be extra sure especially in the spring and fall. Hope you get the book and it helps you, as much as, it did me. Happy reading.
