    10 stars for this great book!!

    I used this book so much that it is starting to fall apart! I worked at an all cat veterinary hospital and this book was excellent for printing information for clients to help them understand their pet's illness or what was involved in the procedures we were performing... Superfantastic!!

    Excellent medical care book for cats.

    I love this book! It is the best book on cat care that I have ever read, and I have read quite a few. I have four cats and three of my cats take medication for various illnesses. This book is a great reference book for me. I am able to look up medical terms that the vet has mentioned during visits, and I now have a better understanding of my cat's illnesses. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a cat!
