From Library Journal
Heinerman, the author of nine books on health (e.g., Heinerman's Encyclopedia of Healing Herbs and Spices, Prentice Hall, 1995), capitalizes on the recent resurgence of interest among pet owners in the holistic and homeopathic treatment of disease. While he is a renowned medical anthropologist and expert on the healing properties of plants, Heinerman is not a veterinarian, and he quotes at length from authorities like Richard Pitcairn (Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats, Rodale, 1995). There are glaring mistakes in the text ranging from the trivial (Lassie was a Rough Collie, not a Border Collie) to the serious (diethylcarbamazine is a preventative for heartworm, not a cure?if given to a dog with heartworms, it could kill). Heinerman does not believe in spaying or neutering since it "deprives animals...of the emotional joys associated with giving birth and parenting," but he fails to address the health benefits of those procedures or the fate of unwanted offspring. If your library needs a book on alternative veterinary care, purchase Pitcairn. Not recommended.?Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, NY
