We love learning about animal health through natural rearing and herbal remedies from the late and great Juliette de Baïracli Levy. Just a wee general caveat: Always check anyone's remedy ideas, oldtime or modern, against current toxicology and drug-interaction databases. ... And pawleeze find an open-minded vet to consult with before applying the ideas in Levy's books. As with all treatments and remedies, whether of 'traditional' or modern pharma/allopathic origin, over time some are inevitably proven unfavorable. ( )

I have found this book valuable. The author is very knowledgeable about animals and how to care for them with herbs. ( )

From book: Animal owners who garden or farm organically want to know how to keep their animals healthy without shooting them full of high-powered drugs, which are the barnyard equivalent of pesticides in the fields..........Health is the primary objective of the organic method. Yet in any healthy ecosystem--such as the one formed by soil, plants, animals and man on the farm or homestead--there will be plenty of evidence of decay; almost every leaf will be bitten and chewed, fungus will be attcking an ancient tree, and the goat may be off her feed. The mentality that reacts to the presence of inscets with chemical poisons also tends to overract to the occasional symptomatic presence of illness by striving for chemical perfection. The remedies in this book, by contrast, grow quietly in the fields and require knowledge, not money, for their procurement. But these methods will build a lasting health that will stregthen every member of the whole farm. In addition to being practical, this work is full of fascinating ideas and luminous insights--the direct result of a lifetime's association with natural healing methods by the author, who has a great deal to tell us about health, faith in natural processes, and the animals who depend on us.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0571161162, Paperback)

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
