Dogs eat grass, and so do cats. Every pet owner must have noticed the grass-eating behavior of their pets. Since wild dogs and cats eat grass too, most experts believe it to be an example of evolved traits of dogs and cats to relieve their upset gastro-intestines.
Based on the observation, experts go on to suggest pet owners grow in their gardens medicinal herbs, other than botanicals that could be toxic to their pets. The herbal recipes, with doses, introduced in the book are intended for the most prevalent health problems of dogs and cats; the herbs that make up the recipes are: 1) available, as dietary supplements in the U.S., in the market by cGMP-certified manufacturers; and 2) in a dosage form of granules that is easy for pets to ingest.

The number of pet dogs and cats continues to increase, especially in mainland China, so does the expenditure per pet. Urbanization, lower marriage rates and delayed parenthood can explain the rises. Pet parents, with an increased disposable income, pursue ‘premium’ or green products and services, such as organic foods and holistic medicine, not only for themselves but also for their pet children.
Although human and other mammals such as horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, camels, and elephants have very different morphology, they share much of the pathophysiology as the underlying cellular biochemistry is evolutionally conserved. Theories of most ethnomedicines, including traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), were applicable to both humans and nonhuman mammals within individual ethnomedicines. In particular, almost all traditional Chinese veterinary recipes were copied from TCM without changes.
