It could have been better Aug. 18 2000
By Barbara - Published on Amazon.com
This book could be an encyclopedia of home remedies for dogs and cats. Over 300 pages cover perhaps all common health problems, which are listed alphabetically thus making it easy to find something, from birthing to asthma, fears, fever, car sickness, cataracts, as well as behavior problems such as chewing, car chasing, jealousy, house-training and much much more.
The only disadvantage in my opinion, is that everything is briefly mentioned, taking only a couple of pages for each subject. The authors could have expanded, making this book the only one a pet owner would ever need.
I do recommend it though to every house with a dog or a cat because it covers almost every illness and trouble you will come across. An experienced owner will find it interesting for the house library, but if you are a beginner you may want to use this book as an addition, "supplement". For beginners I strongly recommend "What your dog is trying to tell you".

Good Advice for Pet Owners Dec 29 2001
By Donna Grayson - Published on Amazon.com
This book is filled with good advice for pet owners. Almost every type of pet health problem is discussed in this book. Unfortunately, because the book covers both dogs and cats some of the information is brief. This is a good reference book for pet owners. I would recommend this book to people who own both a dog and a cat and need a good overview of pet health. If you have only a dog, or only a cat, you might want to get a health book that is more detailed for your type of animal.

Should I call the Vet? Jan. 22 2001
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Ever consult one of those many little medical books to find out whether or not a condition you may have is simply trivial or cause for alarm? I think we all have at one time or another and this book, The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Dogs and Cats is similar. Why is my pet being destructive? Is a cyst a serious thing? How do I clip nails on an animal with dark nails? WHEN SHOULD I CALL THE VET?
This comprehensive volume contains over 1,000 tips including multiple suggestions on aging, barking, car chasing, drooling, fighting, hair balls, itching, meowing, noise anxiety, overweight, poisoning, ringworm, spraying, ticks, urinary tract infections, vision problems, worms, etc. It is not only a useful do-it-yourself book, but one that also clearly lays out guidelines as to when one should take a pet to the Vet. A must have reference for the dog and/or cat owner. A great "peace of mind" book to have on hand.
Worth Its Weight In GOLD!!!! Oct. 29 2013

I had this book for ten plus years and gave it away when my last dog died. Since then I have adopted a new dog and wished I had not given away this book because it is worth its weight in gold! I used many of the suggestions and tips and every one of them helped tremendously. I saved hundreds of dollars by using this book and not going to the Vet. This book is wonderful. I was so happy to see it advertised on Amazon.
