It is only in recent years that aromatherapy, or essential oil therapy, has gained substantial acceptance; this is primarily due to French veterinarians who have begun using essential oils and hydrosols in their practices. Laypeople, of course, have been enjoying great success treating animals with the very same substances for many years; for it is not just the medical pro ...more

This was a very detailed an informative book, not only about aromatherapy for animals but also the benefits of holistic health care in general.One important thing to now, however, is that the book was published over 10 years ago in 2001. I was disappointed when I visited the author's website and discovered that she no teaches classes or offers products related to aromatherapy for animals. Nonetheless, the recipes in her book are still just as valid today as they were when it was published. I int ...more

I am a novice in using essential oils and purchased Holistic Aromatherapy for Animals for guidance in the use of these oils with my beloved Golden Retrievers. The book exceeded my expectations.

I was surprised to learn that the life expectancy of Goldens was fifteen or sixteen forty years ago. Their life expectancy is now seven years. (VIII)

Katherine Leigh Bell gives sound advice on how much oils need to be diluted for the sensitive noses of our dogs. She also lists signs of toxicity to watch fo

This book came incredibly handy for me with my two labradors. Each has severe allergies and prone to flea allergies as well. The two recipes I used in here were for skin irritation and itching and a flea spray. Both worked! Highly recommended. This is one I will be keeping for my travels on the road.

I got this book because I'm new to using oils and i have several rescue cats. I don't want to hurt them when trying to help myself. The section on cats is very short - and summarizes as use hydrosols instead.

Still, there was a lot of information that was beneficial for choosing, storing, and using oils for me as well as lots of useful tips for dogs.

Kind to the earth and animals too, I had hopes of learning how to create holistic remedies to make my furry friends feel better but in the end I was far too lazy.

I read and skimmed through most of this book and it contains some valuable information and many recipes that I need to put together when I find some time. I use aromatherapy in my home and it definitely changes the mood of the household. When the kids are stressing me and/or each other I put on my calming music, diffuse some lavender oi

I was amazed at how easy to read this book is. Written for the layperson, while not talking down to us, is hard to accomplish. This book contains a lot of useful information, references and recipes for dogs and cats as well as information on small animals and horses/livestock. It is all useful information for everyday life with pets. I'm excited to learn more about hydrosols with Catty's book, already on my shelf.
Would recommend this for all essential oil users with pets.

Very useful as aromatherapy for dogs is quite different from aromatherapy for humans.

Detailed and science-based, this is a great book for clinical aromatherapists interested in applying their knowledge to their pets' healthcare.

The book could use to be updated. It is however still worth a read to help keep your furry family safe.
