Having a sick pet is a stressful situation. There is no way your furry friend can tell you exactly what is ailing him or her. Some problems are fairly easy to remedy and can be handled by an alert, knowledgeable owner at home. Others are indications of more serious conditions requiring the intervention of a veterinarian. Here a panel of respected vets provides hints for everyday pet healthcare. Each section includes descriptions and suggestions for coping with or curing ailments ranging from arthritis to shedding. Almost 100 different symptoms and problems are covered, and several of the chapters have a section entitled "When To See the Vet." Though this book is not a medical reference or a substitute for veterinary care, it is full of useful tips for making your dog's or cat's life more comfortable. Recommended for libraries where interest in pets runs high.?Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., Wis.

The only disadvantage in my opinion, is that everything is briefly mentioned, taking only a couple of pages for each subject. The authors could have expanded, making this book the only one a pet owner would ever need.
I do recommend it though to every house with a dog or a cat because it covers almost every illness and trouble you will come across. An experienced owner will find it interesting for the house library, but if you are a beginner you may want to use this book as an addition, "supplement". For beginners I strongly recommend "What your dog is trying to tell you".
This comprehensive volume contains over 1,000 tips including multiple suggestions on aging, barking, car chasing, drooling, fighting, hair balls, itching, meowing, noise anxiety, overweight, poisoning, ringworm, spraying, ticks, urinary tract infections, vision problems, worms, etc. It is not only a useful do-it-yourself book, but one that also clearly lays out guidelines as to when one should take a pet to the Vet. A must have reference for the dog and/or cat owner. A great "peace of mind" book to have on hand.
It's really difficult to decide whether to run your pet to the vet or not and this book gives just enough information to help you make a decision as well as some home remedies and suggestions to try first. Imagine the money you'll save by fixing the problem yourself.
