Millions of years before the first human walked the earth, creatures large and small were using plants as their primary source of healing. Much of our modern medicine originates from what early humans learned through observation of wild animals and their instinctive uses of plants.
This beautifully illustrated book introduces you to hundreds of plant medicines that can be used in the daily care of animals. The authors, both herbalists, begin with a chapter on the principles and practices of herbalism, explaining the basics of herbal preparations, and then step-by-step guiding you into new levels of self-reliance as you learn to select, prepare and apply natural remedies on behalf of your companion animal. They discuss the connection between herbs and diet and give guidelines for feeding dogs and cats, and have provided references to hundreds of cutting-edge scientific studies that support the effectiveness of the use of herbs for animals.
