Make no mistake about it animals do have emotions. They love, fear, grieve, to mention just a few. -- Catherine Ferguson, Pet Psychic * the Jersey Journal * `This book is in direct response to the growing need and frequent requests we have from people wishing to enhance the wellbeing and healing of their pets and animals. Marie has tremendous passion, commitment, expertise and knowledge of the Bush Essences, qualities she has brought to her roles as Tutor of our Correspondence Course and Editor of the Bush Essence Newsletter. I highly commend this book.' -- Ian White, author of Australian Bush Flower Essences `The book you hold in your hands may help you remember some long forgotten truths, truths that our animal friends live with every day.' -- Peta Clarke, Animal Training Solutions Australia `A wonderful job. Well done. You have emphasized the common problem areas with animal owners with thorough explanation from the animal's point of view and without judgment.' -- Clare Middle, Naturopathic Vet., East Freemantle
