Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this combination of New Age feminist and holistic medicine propaganda, the author berates the patriarchal society, the Food and Drug Administration, and industry generally. Her book emphasizes proper nutrition, but her recommendations, based on others' writings, are contradictory and conflict with current recommendations from the government's expert committee on the nutrition of dogs and cats. While some aspects of holistic medicine, such as massaging an animal to relax it, are valid, most remedies, such as using flower essences for slipped discs, are useless and could delay an owner's seeking proper treatment for a pet. Prescribing arsenic--a poison--for diarrhea is one of the book's potentially harmful recommendations. Furthermore, not all readers will be sympathetic with Stein's references to communicating with spirits and reincarnation. Although it occasionally provides useful information, this book should be avoided because the average reader will not be able to distinguish legitimate from dangerous advice-- A. Louis Shor, DVM, Veterinary Consultant, Mt. Laurel, N.J.
