The Complete Herbal Handbook For The Dog And Cat

The Complete Herbal Handbook For Farm And Stable
Faber & Faber, 1952. Fourth edition 1991

The first veterinary herbal ever to be published.
"This fascinating book is a valuable guide for farmers and the general public concerned about the overuse of nonnatural medicine, herbicides, and insecticides in farm management and animal husbandry. The author, Juliette de Baïracli Levy, offers detailed directions for treating all farm animals with natural methods, while stating her evidence that "mechanized" farming methods have led to the demise of domesticated animals' overall health. She asserts that poor and inadequate natural habitat, unnatural feeding practices, and a reliance on medicine to fight individual symptoms of disease without addressing the whole animal have weakened farm animals' innate disease-fighting ability. Her argument for a return to reliance on the natural and away from the synthetic and artificial rearing and feeding methods of farm animals becomes more urgent and relevant given the outbreaks of "mad cow disease" and other ailments caused by these practices. This book, used in conjunction with proper consultation with a veterinarian, can help animal owners and farmers move back to natural and healthy farming practices." --Julia King

 

Cats Naturally
Faber and Faber; illustrated edition 7. Oktober 1991

This book was written for cat lovers. Of all the domestic animals, cats have remained closest to their natural instincts and the author, who is a professional herbalist, describes and lists the plants that cats instinctively use as dietary supplements or when they are unwell. She advocates an entirely natural diet and describes in detail how best to achieve this. A cat living in a town cannot always be given the same freeedom of movement as a country cat but the author shows how to make the most of life for a town cat. Problems such as scratching furniture, spraying and fleas are dealt with and a special feature of this book is a list of suitable names for your naturally reared cat.
