Simply because a particular herb can be beneficial to humans does not make it safe or suitable to use for our pets. I haven't yet had a chance to read this book in its entirety, but I have already found Herbs for Pets to be well worth its price for information regarding particular ailments/issues affecting my feline and senior canine and for looking up particular benefits and warnings/precautions about the use of particular herbs for our furry companions.

Chapter 2's Materia Medica spans 160 pages. It includes a primary section that provides detailed profiles for 65 herbs (see below table of contents for a list) and shorter profiles for 44 more. The profiles include color photographs of most of the fresh botanicals.

The detailed profiles include these sections (I didn't check every single one -- some herbs may not contain all sections):

  • Common Name
  • Botanical Name
  • Family Name
  • Appearance
  • Habitat and Range
  • Cycle and Bloom Season
  • Parts Used
  • Primary Medicinal Activities
  • Strongest Affinities
  • Preparation
  • Common Uses
  • Availability
  • Propagation and Harvest
  • Alternatives and Adjuncts
  • Cautions and Comments

The "Herbal Supplement List" is a section of 44 shorter herbal profiles in Chapter 2. Each herb in this section includes the following information (some also include color photos and a category that discusses availability of the herb):

  • Common Name
  • Botanical Name
  • Primary Medicinal Activites
  • Common Uses
  • Safety/Cautions/Contraindications
