Both authors are experienced herbalists, and this book is far more than a list of recipes for dealing with common health problems. It covers the principles and theories of herbal medicine, as well as ethical issues involved with using plants.
There are literally hundreds of plant medicines included in this massive resource. Each entry includes a plant description, information on cultivating and obtaining the plant, a guide to the preparation and administration of the herb, beautiful, large, clear, color photographs of the herbs, and information on contraindications and side effects. There is easy to understand information about what common maladies can be treated by each herb contained with the description of each herb. The herb guide alone is almost 200 pages long, but the book includes more than that. It is followed by an excellent encyclopedia of ailments, with practical care suggestions as well as references to appropriate herbs.
There is even a comprehensive section on nutrition, utilizing the holistic approach that sets the Tilfords apart as herbalists. They cover nutrition and herbal care for many species of animals, including dogs, cats, horses, birds, and reptiles. They describe Western, ayurvedic, and Chinese herbs, and give information on how to grow many useful herbs in your own garden.Read more ›
"Herbs for Pets" is clearly written, giving common and botanical names, along with which family the plant is from, and comprehensive details on the use of each herb and its parts.
"Herb For Pets" covers a wide range of topics from alternative and complementary medicines to grieving for the loss of a loved companion animal.
The authors have gone to great lengths to give wonderful references and resources. The plates of the plants and the illustrations are excellent.
This book is not only a must for your library, it is very nicely written and with obvious empathy and compassion for guardian and companion animal.
You will find "Herbs for Pets" a valuable resource that you will refer to often.
Unfortunately, the most striking difference is that the new edition has about half the content. I'm planning on returning the new edition because there are plenty of other, less expensive cursory books about herbs for pets.
