Very good article. Mother Earth provides us with everything we need, and most of the time we ignore important plants and call them weeds.

I have a book on herbal first aid for animals. One of the things it suggests is that if your older dog suffers from Canine Warts (many if not most elderly dogs do) you should pick fresh dandelion stalks and squeeze the white juice from them onto the wart. Apparently the juice causes the wart to dry up and drop off without causing the animal any pain or irritation. Fresh or dried dandelion leaves and stems chopped up and put into the dogs food, are very good for its general health.

Does anyone know if it's safe for cats?

Interesting, as long as there are no pesticides involved.

Carol H here is an article regarding whether or not dandelion is toxic for cats.

Add the blooms to pancake batter for great dandelion fritters.

They are rather excruciatingly bitter. I'm afraid my boy might retaliate by biting me.

thanks for the post, it's also good for humans; but not to be taken if one suffers from depression.
