Overview


What’s wrong with your dog—and what should you be doing about it?

In What’s Wrong with My Dog?, acclaimed vet Jake Tedaldi, DVM, gives you the answers. More than a first-aid book but as easy to follow and use, What’s Wrong with My Dog? is organized by symptom. Each of the 150 symptoms is clearly described. The Symptom Finder at the front of the book makes it easy to find the relevant pages and quickly verify your pet’s problem, allowing you to see what’s causing it, and determine what you should do. Each symptom is accompanied by a detailed description of what to look for along with a list of questions that help you determine what to do next.

This book contains hundreds of clear explanations on how to treat your dog. It explains whether you need to take your dog to the vet or to an emergency care clinic, and whether it will get better without supplemental care, and what you can do long-term to prevent the problem from happening again. Remedies cover a broad spectrum, from cutting-edge conventional medicine to alternative therapies to home remedies that really work. There’s even a section on putting together a home first-aid kit for your dog. Indexes by symptom and by problem provide quick reference.
