I picked up this book just to glance through and ended up absorbed. The information is invaluable and a must for anyone who has a dog.

This is exactly what I wanted. I wanted to have on hand easy access to all my dogs medical issues. Including when it is something I can take care of and when I need the vet. It is a must for dog owners.

The book is very informative and well written. It has alot of information that you could use instead of going to the vet for every issue.
