Jack Hanna's ultimate guide to petsUser Review - Book Verdict
To help readers choose the right pet, Hanna, director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and an animal expert who often appears on Good Morning America, discusses a wide variety of pets, from the common (dogs and cats) to the unusual (lizards, potbellied pigs, and cockroaches). He details the characteristics and care requirements of each animal, covering housing, feeding, the appearance of normal and sick animals, and compatibility with children and other pets. For each pet, Hanna presents sources of additional information, including the names, addresses, and phone numbers of relevant organizations. He also discusses specific diseases and offers advice on traveling with or shipping an animal. Especially helpful are his tips on how to cope with the loss of a pet. Easy for both children and adults to read, this book includes the occasional retelling of animal myths and the author's humorous animal experiences, lightening what is an excellent presentation of a serious subject. For all pet-care collections.-A. Louis Shor, DVM, Veterinary Consultant, Mt. Laurel, N.J.
