i bought a book from this seller and waited for a week and after that stated that sold to some one else and cant ship that book to me and you can buy same book and i was just use to know that was almost 3 times of the price of price at which i bought before so thats the game any ways i am doen with that that thanks for wasting time
Its textbook sized with lots of details regarding different ailments for different pet species. I have 2 dogs and an aquarium full of goldfish and a tadpole. I've found this book very helpful when something seems unusual in any of my pet's behaviors. But keep in mind, even though symptoms may be uncanny to those in the book, do not self diagnose or medicate without consulting a professional (and in this case, your vet.)
As a dog's owner, I found few informative facts about some manifestation of distress by my two rescue-dogs. It helped me to understand and eventually trust the diagnosis by my veterinarian--who happened to be my daughter--. You need to have some medical understanding in order to benefit from the information. I do believe that having it in one's library is comforting indeed; Just like Dr. Spock for parents with young children. Nevertheless, don't dare be your own vet; you must have a competent veterinarian
I thought that this book was utter rubbish. It had outdated information, for instance, on kitten care and at that only a few sentences. If you just want to read very short, outdated blurbs about everything under the sun though, this book is for you. Very disappointing book. What were they thinking writing this?
