Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This fascinating book is a valuable guide for farmers and the general public concerned about the overuse of nonnatural medicine, herbicides, and insecticides in farm management and animal husbandry. The author, Juliette de Baïracli Levy, offers detailed directions for treating all farm animals with natural methods, while stating her evidence that "mechanized" farming methods have led to the demise of domesticated animals' overall health. She asserts that poor and inadequate natural habitat, unnatural feeding practices, and a reliance on medicine to fight individual symptoms of disease without addressing the whole animal have weakened farm animals' innate disease-fighting ability. Her argument for a return to reliance on the natural and away from the synthetic and artificial rearing and feeding methods of farm animals becomes more urgent and relevant given the outbreaks of "mad cow disease" and other ailments caused by these practices. This book, used in conjunction with proper consultation with a veterinarian, can help animal owners and farmers move back to natural and healthy farming practices. --Julia King

Juliette Levy is a legend in the world of natural healing. Her courage in speaking out against the unnatural methods of raising dogs, cats and farm animals often brought her much criticism, but the practices set forth in her book have stood the tests of time and have saved many an animal that might otherwise have been lost. She offers not only an extensive list of plants and their uses, but also speific protocols for a variety of illnesses, all very clearly explained and laid out. She outlines specific dietary regimines as well, for the purpose of maintaining maximum health and supporting an ill animal through the healing process. I have personally used her methods with my own animals with great success. No serious herbalist or student of natural healing should be without it.

I am a goat farmer for many years now. I have bought many books on goats, veterinary manuals, and so on, but this book is the first one I turn to for animal ailments. Natural rearing methods produce better and healthier kids than any other method. I bought one doe kid who was so ill with a disease that affected her brain that I was going to put her out of her misery--- it was too late for a vet to do any good. With the herbal treatments in this book, the goat recovered and lived over a year in good health.

We raise our animals naturlaly/organically. We had been searching for a book that would help us with our animals in such a way medically, if needed. A friend of ours, who has been doing what we're doing for decades, highly recommended this book, telling us it would become our farm "bible". After reading just a few pages of this, we quickly realized what she meant, and we have been reading from it and using it ever since. It is very clearly written, easy to understand, and a joy to use. The author gives a wonderful history of herbal medicines in a farm/livestock setting. She clearly explains how to prepare the herbs (in tinctures, poultices, etc.) for the animals. She breaks it down for the different animals as well. This book is a joy to own-- we're very pleased with our purchase.

This is the very best book I've ever come across to teach how to use herbs and natural remedies for specific animal situations! I love this book and will never be without it. I have already started using some information from the section on sheep/stock dogs, with immediate and visible improvements. It is the most in depth book I've ever found, as well as the most knowledgeable author I've read for this subject.

I'm a equine professional and read through the horse section of the book half the stuff she has you do for the horse will kill the horse more then help. A fly remedy of putting used motor oil on your horse. You are polluting your horse its food and environment. Very very bad idea. I don't know much about other animals but not for horses. A lot of other things like cherry tree tea for coughs, I do believe that cherry trees are poisoness to horses. Laminitis she has you putting an hot poultice on the hooves. You will make it worse by adding more heat to the already hot feet. You need to cool those feet off as fast as possible to stop the laminitis. It is the worse thing I've ever read when it comes to horses. Might as well tell me to shoot the horse it will suffer less.

This is a great resource for preventative care. This is not a quick fix of an animal down and dying - it's more day to day prevention in focus as often it should be. It greatly lessens the chemical medications needed for care of animals. The point of dogs being adapted to fasting/feasting in the natural state and, in the wild, consume small animals and birds bones and all, is a point for additionally feeding raw. Some of the terminology is UK based ('lurchers' in dogs for example) but a good and well-used book to have on hand and *use*! If you save one vet call it's worth the cost of this book; and many have saved animals from it. It works!
