Description - Psychoactive Herbs in Veterinary Behavior Medicine by Stefanie Schwartz
The phenomenal growth of public interest in alternative treatments for human disease and discomfort has spilled over into pet care. Pet owners - many of whom have tried herbal remedies to treat their own physical or emotional symptoms - are now interested in using these remedies to solve problems with their companion animals. The renewed interest in botanical medicine (phytomedicine), combined with the availability of non-prescription herbal supplements, has prompted many veterinarians to investigate the potential use of herbs and other preparations to treat a variety of medical concerns. Psychotropic Herbs in Veterinary Behavior Medicine will be an important guide for board-certified veterinary behaviorists as well as veterinarians with a particular interest in behavior medicine. Pet owners interested in alternative medicine for their misbehaving pets will use this well-rounded work to make more informed decisions on the use of over-the-counter remedies.
