The phenomenal growth of public interest in alternatives to Western treatments for human disease has spilled over into veterinary medicine. Many holistic veterinarians and pet owners are now interested in using alternative remedies to solve health problems with their pets. Psychoactive Herbs in Veterinary Behavior Medicine is the first text on psychoactive herbal remedies for the treatment of behavior problems in small animals and provides:
∑ The history and philosophy of herbal practices including traditional Oriental medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, Western medicine and Native American medicine
∑ Scientific data of psychoactive herbs from around the world and their potential use in veterinary behavior medicine
∑ A summary of behavior modification for the most common behavior problems in pets
Psychoactive Herbs in Veterinary Behavior Medicine is an important guide for board-certified veterinary behaviorists, as well as veterinarians and veterinary students with a particular interest in behavior medicine. In addition, pet owners interested in alternative medicine for their misbehaving pets can use this well-rounded work to make informed decisions on the use of over-the-counter remedies.
