Resources: Home remedies and tips

August 30, 2011 | By | Add a Comment

Here are some Web resources that may be helpful for those of us who like to gain insight on how to treat the simple things at home – but only in concert with the advice of one’s veterinarian.

This is one of the issues I discuss in my book – how to tell the difference between a really good vet, and others: the former will have no problem speaking with you about home remedies (or writing prescriptions for medicines that can be filled by general pharmacies at a fraction of what he or she charges).

As stated in the Disclaimer at the bottom of this page, there is no substitute for the timely input of a veterinarian when one’s dog is ill.  But these resources may provide you with helpful background information, and a basis upon which to ask intelligent questions.

Drs. Foster & Smith: Noted long-term veterinarians have posted more than 2,000 articles covering a huge range of topics. Also a source of dog pharmaceutical items and accessories. Written and edited by a team of veterinarians.

WebMD for Dogs: Probably the most well-rounded, well-designed all-around resource I’ve encountered. Gorgeous site.

Organic Pet Digest: “Your guide to natural and holistic care” – Common Dog Health Problems Symptoms & Natural Dog Remedies
