That said, I still liked it for a read. Wish it was thicker though. It often left me with more questions then it answered.
NCBI notwithstanding, black seed oil, as described in The Healing Power of Black Cumin, is well tolerated by dogs. It has been studied in rats and showed activity against allergy, asthma, tumors, and other inflammation, if given in amounts appropriate to the weight of the animal. An overdose was harmful, as with many other medicinal substances.
In a small dog with allergies, under 20 lbs, I would start with 1/4 tsp per day for a week, and if that was not effective, increase dose by a small increment for another week (second week give 1/2 tsp per day). If that were still not effective I would try 3/4 tsp per day for a week, etc.
In giving black seed oil to a dog for allergies, commonsense precautions such as would be observed in giving it to infants and children worked fine. If 2 tsps a day (one morning, one evening) were recommended for an adult human, then for a 70 lb dog it made sense to start with 1 tsp per day. Giving the minimum effective dose seems important in any home remedy. That dose worked to eliminate an allergy in my dog that seemed to be due to a fungal infection (redness between toes, facial itching that was extreme, and a "fungal smell." 2 years of visits to the vets, multiple food changes, antifungal shampoos, antibiotics, probiotics, etc., could not resolve this problem, yet one week of one tsp a day of black seed oil eliminated the problem. She continues to take this remedy daily, and it has caused a sebaceous tumor (benign) on her back to shrink.
However, I've been thinking a lot about something said to me in the comments about my words affecting another person's income. I believe that I've judged the book too harshly on a single piece of information, so I've amended my review.
Though I still strongly urge readers to avoid Tea Tree Oil with pets, I think that there are probably many other valuable things to be gleaned from this book.
