RODALE NEWS, EMMAUS, PA—We all love our pets…until they show up smelling like a skunk, or mess all over our new carpeting, or come home covered in fleas. Oh, let's face it. We love them then, too. But dealing with animals poses a unique set of problems, since they can't answer questions and they don't respond well to commands like "Go clean yourself up until you stop stinking!"

Never fear, Joey Green is here to help. The author of dozens of home remedy books like Wash Your Hair with Whipped Cream and Joey Green's Encyclopedia of Offbeat Uses for Brand Name Products, Green's new book for pet owners, Joey Green's Amazing Pet Cures (Rodale, 2011), is filled with ways to solve all manner of pet problems. Now that summer is nigh upon us, we asked Green for his favorite solutions to common summertime pet issues. (And remember that with heat comes heat stroke, so read our story from last summer on helping your pets cope with the heat.)
