Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have never seen a book like this one...An extremely useful guide." —Mordecai Siegal, author of UC Davis Book of Dogs
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

    What's wrong? Is the dog is sick?

    This book provides valuable help determining if something is wrong with your dog. It does this by asking questions (like is your dog old, a female, a large breed, etc.) and describing behavior. For example, if the dog is sitting in a sphynx-like position, it may have a stomach ache. The book also lists common problems by dog breed. For example dachshunds are prone to back problems and labrador retrievers are prone to diabetes. I liked it so well that I later bought another copy as a gift for my sister and am about to purchase a copy for a friend.
