BOOKS: The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Dogs and Cats
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, November 1996:
The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Dogs and Cats:
over 1,000 solutions to your pet’s problems
by the editors of Prevention Magazine Health Books. Rodale Press Inc.
(18 Minor St., Emmaus, PA 18098), 404 pages, $27.95, hardback.
The best part of this handy how-to
is that the panel of advisors responsible for
the advice under each heading are identified
by name and either institutional affiliation or
place of business. The advisors are diverse,
as are their recommendations, and as many
experts may have contributed (I didn’t
count) as there are tips offered. Both the
table of contents and the index are comprehensive;
the typography of the table of contents
also wins special notice for offering
clear, direct leads to the information you
may need in a hurry. It’s a book any pet
keeper could use, but animal shelters will
use it most, not only in handling the incoming
but also in answering telephone calls
from the panic-stricken public––and will
undoubtedly appreciate getting it as a donation.
