"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)
From the Back Cover
PETS The gentle and effective qualities that have made homeopathy such a popular remedy for humans make it the perfect treatment method for animals as well. This reader-friendly guide is an A-to-Z reference for treating almost any emergency that may befall our animal companions. Unlike most manuals available, Homeopathic First Aid for Animals applies to many different animal species. Chapters focus on pets, horses, barnyard animals, even birds and reptiles. Special sections discuss caring for orphaned young animals and understanding how homeopathic medicines work. Practical clinical instruction in homeopathy and first aid is included for each condition, from broken bones and diarrhea to poisoning and trauma. With real-life anecdotes from the author's many years of veterinary experience treating household pets and farm animals, Homeopathic First Aid for Animals is as entertaining as it is useful. It makes the perfect guide for those who want to give animals the nonthreatening, natural care they need. KAETHERYN WALKER teaches workshops in homeopathy and animal care and provides homeopathic consultations for pets and wild animals throughout the United States and Canada. She lives on the Maine coast.See all Product Description

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.
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!
for over 20 years now. This is one of the best, easiest and informative guides to Homeopathic first
aid for animals. I recommend this book to my students. I enjoy the format of this book and the ease of use. The author is an amazing practitioner and her love for nature and animals comes out in
this book as well as her knowledge of animals and remedies. I highly recommend this book to anyone
who is seriously interested in learning to use homeopathics in first aid.
