Zoe Conrad"ELSEVIER, ONE OF THEWORLD'S LEADING scientific, health and educational publishers, has recently entered the companion animal field by launching a series of pet health-related titles. Each book in this "Pet Lover's Guide" series-which includes Cat & Dog Skin Diseases, and Canine Arthritis & Joint Problems-is chock-a-block with helpful information dedicated to specific health topics. ... The chapters are well-organized, the diagrams are clearly rendered, the photographs are unambiguous and graphic, and the type is large and easy to read....The book is divided into three parts. The first covers diet and natural therapies, the second makes recommendations for special health conditions, and the third deals with health maintenance and preventive health measures. You can pick up tips on how to stock your own pet herbal home pharmacy, which includes common herbs probably already found on your shelves-peppermint, ginger, green tea, turmeric, etc.-as well as the more "exotic" varieties: kelp (useful for underactive thyroid glands), boswellia (good for inflammatory bowel disease) and celery seed (helps reduce flatulence)....Like a good map with clear, simple directions, this book is valuable (and affordable) tools that will help dog- and cat-lovers find their way around the landscape of holistic healthcare."
