Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
If our pets could tell us what ails them, it would be easy to diagnose and treat their illnesses. Since this is not the case, we must be part sleuth and part psychic to interpret properly the clues they give us. These two titles by a veterinarian offer help in an easy-to-use format. The first chapter discusses emergency situations such as bite wounds and heat stroke, while the second chapter describes abnormal behaviors such as aggression and lethargy. The following eight chapters tour the animal's body from head to toe, offering thorough discussions of symptoms, diagnoses, possible causes, care, and prevention. Five appendixes include a checklist for good health, information on performing weekly home exams, breed disease predilections, a series of questions to answer before going to the veterinarian, and a list of recommended dosages of over-the-counter medications, herbs, and minerals. Highly recommended for pet care collections.Peggie Partello, Keene State Coll. Lib., NH
