Format: Paperback
This thin volume is intended as an introduction to herbs and nutraceuticals for veterinary professionals who are interested in incorporating some alternative treatment methods into their small animal practice. Dr. Wynn begins with the basic philosophy of holistic medicine and explains how to do a holistic evaluation. She then provides basic sample treatment protocols using herbs and nutraceuticals for a variety of ailments. She tends to err on the conservative side, not recommending, for instance, alternative treatments for heartworm disease although alternative heartworm treatments are available and often effective.
The most interesting parts of the book are the two materia medicas: one for nutraceutical supplements and one for herbs. While not very comprehensive, it's nice to have fully referenced material available in an area where there are many unsubstantiated claims. Each entry in the materia medica describes the supplement's actions, use, contraindications, potential adverse effects, and dosage.
All in all, a nonessential but nice addition to the library of the holistic animal health professional or the veterinary practitioner seeking to incorporate some alternative treatment methods.

I've been waiting anxiously for a book on herbs and nutritional supplements that has some science behind it. It seems like most of authors just quote each other. This one actually looks at the evidence for these supplements, and in doing so, blazes new territory in alternative veterinary medicine. I think it's a highly useful reference for veterinarians and dog owners alike!
