Psychoactive Herbs in Veterinary Behavior Medicine.
Psychoactive herbs in veterinary behavior medicine.
Director of behavior services at an animal hospital in Massachusetts, Schwartz (clinical sciences, Tufts U.) surveys the medicinal herbs used veterinary behavior medicine, warning that the information should be used only by licensed doctors, students enrolled in schools, or researches of veterinary medicine--and that pet owners in particular should not try these out on their companions. She looks at western, Native American, Ayurvedic, Oriental, and miscellaneous psychoactive herbs. For each she discusses habitat and distribution, history, ingredients, clinical effects, adverse effects, availability, clinical application in veterinary behavior medicine, and references.
