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.

 THE AUTHOR SCOOP

Read any good books lately?My favorite reading is science fiction, there are new good books coming out every day.  Look at Sharon Shinn, Tamora Pierce, Ann Bishop, and so many more talented women fiction writers.If you had to boil your book's message down to one sentence, what would it be?Serve the Light, trust the Light, make a difference in the world with who you are and what you do.

What are you working on now?I prefer to keep future books a secret until they are finished.  No one will know until the manuscript is mailed in.Do you eat your vegetables?I have been a vegetarian since 1983.  I do eat my vegetables.If you had a superpower, what would it be?Wonder Woman, of course.How long did it take you to write this book?  I have been working with herbs for over 35 years, so you could say it took that long to write it.

Having already had raging success with flower essences and other natural remedies for both me and my dogs, I see Diane Stein's book as a breath of fresh air. Finally, one-stop shopping for natural remedies and healing methods for animals. As an animal telepath myself, I am not so quick to dismiss homeopathic and natural remedies. These must be investigated on a per use basis, discovering individually what is best for each case. And just for the previous reviewer's information, arsenica (derived from arsenic, but not pure poison) is a commonly prescribed homeopathic remedy for both animals and humans with diarrhea. He should be more informed before he is so quick to dismiss something that is accepted by another branch of the medical community. I would expect more from my vet!
