I consider myself an amateur when it comes to herb use, but have been studying and using herbs in my life for a few years now. I hoped for concrete advice regarding parasites and some other health concerns and felt this book was lacking. For someone new to herbs it offers guidance that is beneficial but I found myself frustrated that it was repeating very basic information that I know (ginger for digestion, dandelion good tonic, echinacea for immune system) and not getting into the more specific information I would like in a health reference for my cats. It also does not go into what herbs are toxic to cats, another thing that I feel is vitally important to have in any book on herbal cat care. If you are new to herbs and want to start learning, this is an easy to read book, but if you have any specific concerns or want more in depth information this is not the book for you.

I think herbal care is a wonderful way to help heal our furry loved ones. I use herbs to treat some of my problems, why wouldn't I want to do the same for my cats! That is why I feel this is a wondeful book! This book lists all the types of herbs you can use on your cats. I also appreciate how easy the author layed out the different remedies for different conditions. Dr. Kidd also gives us an easy way to figure out doses. I feel good knowing I can turn to this book for help when my cats have any problems.

This book is well written! Dr. Kidd gives great stories from his own experience. I have used a few of his remedies for my cats and they worked. I always consult my vet before using a remedy though. I like to make sure my cat's problem isn't so serious it's life threatening. As long as you are careful about that, then this book is a MUST HAVE. I only wish he went into more detail on some things and had more "concoctions". Also wish he would come out w/ a book on Aromatherapy for pets or have included it in this book.

This is a great volume, but it is not for folks without some herbal knowledge. Dr. Kidd is straightforward and has excellent detail. HOWEVER, there are some remedies he suggests that I would NEVER give to my cats. I'm an herbalist and know how powerful herbs are. Some of them-- like kava, st. john's wort, & the like-- aren't herbs I would ever feel comfortable giving my felines. Cats, unlike dogs, do not eliminate all toxins from their system. Their kidneys and liver are known for being more sensitive. Some of the herbal remedies suggested don't sit well with me.

However, that being said, Dr. Kidd is a doctor and I'm not. He has more wisdom and experience than I do. So I am still recommending this book. But, as with everything in life, use your own judgement. He has some excellent suggestions that I wasn't aware of or didn't consider incorporating into my cats' diet and regimen. Overall, a good resource to have on hand. But, a resource for folks with some herbal knowledge and a home apothecary.

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 Cat Care and Herbal Dog Care, there really isn't much difference between the two books.

I was really hoping for an in-depth herbal guide for cats and this didn't even come close to the mark. I wanted a book with recipes for feline ailments and an herbal guide that told how cat safe herbs affected the cat. I was very disappointed in this book. He basicly repeats himself in every chapter while being so vague about the concepts he's trying to impart.

I bought both the Herbal Cat Book as well as the Herbal Dog Book and they are almost page-for-page identical! The only change is one says dog and the other says cat. Not happy with this at all.

I am very impressed with this book (and the one about Dog care too). I have lots of herb books but this is the first one I've bought about pet care. It's well written, easy to understand, and full of great information. Of course it's not extremely in depth, but gives a great start for anyone just beginning to learn about holistic health for pets. I wish this guy could be our vet!!!
