Product Description

Review

"The cases in this book show homeopathy in action on a level everyone can relate to, and the demonstration of how what is observed is turned into the means of remedy selection is particularly useful. This is a book that will certainly find a place in the market."
(John Saxton, Homeopathy Today)

Homeopathic First Aid for Animals: Tales and Techniques from a Country Practitioner, by by Kaetheryn Walker is probably the first book I reach for when a medical crisis arises. While this is not the book one needs to search for consitutional remedies, it is a must for those sudden acute conditions that pop up unexpectedly. As the manager of a small feline sanctuary where I care for over 40 cats, I recommend this book highly.

Format: Paperback
My second favorite reference book when it comes to the homeopathic treatment of cats, and my number one choice when it comes to acute health situations. The conditions are in alphabetical order, so you can find the information you need in a hurry. This book is quite simple to use, especially if you have little or no background in homeopathy.

Quaint, but not what I was looking for Jan. 9 2007
By Karena Thurston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was trying to find a desk reference or "materia medica" of sorts for using homeopathy with animals. I have been brought up on homeopathic care for myself above going to doctors for colds, allergies and the like so now that I have a cat I am beginning to question typical veterinary practice, especially since my cat was prescribed amoxicillin for an upper respiratory cold and it was even flavored orange - you can imagine trying to give that to an animal that would prefer fish over citrus.

This book had some cute illustrations but was more of a story-book that I would have really had to read through all of than a quick, practical reference that I could turn to in recognising and treating symptoms.

One of the first books I reach for! July 7 2009
By Jayne Athey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have many, many reference books, and I understand the benefits of a full blown homeopathy course and use of the materia medica, but even with all that on hand, this is one of the first books I reach for for any given situation.

KW has taken a list of frequently-used homeopathic remedies for emergency situations and listed them, along with their qualifying characteristics that distinguish which choice to use for that particular situation, and instructs on dosing, as well.

It is by far one of the most easy-to-use books on homeopathy I've ever encountered and when there has been a dog fight, or a scratch on the eye, or an emergency that includes bleeding, I don't want to have to read a 500 page manual to figure out what to use. The layout, precision, and instructions in this book make it so incredibly handy to have around and a person can do more in-depth searching later if they wish, when the emergency has been handled. There are also stories mixed into certain categories that help illuminate the possibilities of the remedies and provide greater understanding.

I have primarily pugs and just the section on eye injuries alone has been WELL WORTH the effort to buy and read the book. I started purchasing the remedies mentioned in the book little by little, and I find it very handy to have them when something unexpected happens. The situations I've handled having this book and the associated remedies on hand have convinced me that homeopathy is a major player in health on many levels!! Thank you Ms. Walker!
