5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference March 3, 2008
Format:Hardcover
My experience is that only quality books are published by Mosby as Mosby publishes college text books for the healthcare field. I have spent thousands of dollars with holistic and traditional veterinarians over the years-having some of my animals continue to be ill(auto-immune diseases and viruses are difficult).I have learned to educate myself and learn ways to keep my animals healthy through preventative care. Human grade or organic food has significantly made a difference as well as supplements. This book gives wonderful information regarding diseases and alternative herbs/supplements to use. I am careful,as not all herbs/supplements are safe in themselves and/or due to the harvesting country from which they come-this book gives a list of possible resources-most only available to the veterinarian, however, when I see a product from that resource on the shelf at the store or on-line I am comfortable trying it. This book was written for the professional and should be viewed as such. I recommend this book for enlightment of alternatives that may be available. I have seen many supplements at the "Health Food Store" for animals-this book has provided a reliable source for checking the ingredients purpose and safety.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Herbalist! April 16, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is NOT just for DVMs, though I encourage all of them to read it. This is a great book for professional herbalist (or those on their way). It is written in a very textbook format and it is technical and scientific, but it is awesome and worth the money! If you are an herbalist and have animals, or may work with them, put this book on your 'must read' list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Veterinary Medicine April 1, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The authors are highly regarded professionals in this area.
The book is a hardback, so made to last.
It firstly reviews all of the main herbal medicine disciplines, giving historical background.
It covers evaluating research, regulations and scepticism.
It covers the main herbal plants used in herbal medicine, including how to grow them, and how to make the best use of them.
It has a comprehensive section on veterinary clinical use of herbs, including a materia medica.
It also has some handy information in the appendices, eg. conversion tables.
The index is great because it lists plant common names, scientific names, diseases and body parts.
I would recommend this book to any veterinary professionals who have an interest in this area.
