Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Natural health authority Mindell (Earl Mindell's Supplement Bible, Simon & Schuster, 1988) examines canine nutrition here. Asserting that commercial dog food does not deliver the nutrition promised, he advises on reading a label when choosing a brand; supplementing with vitamins, minerals, and garlic for optimum health throughout the life span; holistically treating common ailments ranging from cuts to fleas to kidney failure; preparing home-cooked meals; and treats. His explanations and charts will be clearly understood by lay readers. A short bibliography (five of the eight citations are authored by Mindell), extensive chapter references, including web sites, authenticating his assertions and recommendations, and a sparse list of sources for organic food, homeopathic remedies, and holistic veterinarian medicine complete the book. For public libraries needing a useful introduction to natural health for dogs. For in-depth treatment of similar topics, see Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats (Rodale, 1995).Florence Scarinci, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City, NY
