This book is one of my favorites and I use it daily. Each section states the ailment and then treatment by nutrition, naturopathy, vitamins and minerals, herbs, homeopathy, acupuncture, flower essences and gemstones. I highly recommend this book. The beginning of the book explains each of the treatments and how they work. Stein has another natural pet remedy book out but this one covers more treatments and I feel is a much better buy. A very thorough guide and an indispensable book for your reference library. It will reduce your veterinary costs for the day to day minor ailments that occur with pets.
