Books in Barron's Complete Pet Owner's Manuals series present basic information on a wide variety of pets for new or soon-to-be pet owners. Advice and instruction cover proper feeding, housing, health care, training, grooming, protection against hazards, and much more. Texts emphasize basics and are easy for all readers to understand, but most titles in this series also present facts that even experienced pet owners and breeders havn't encountered before. Each manual has been individually written by an expert--many of them professional breeders or veterinarians. All volumes are filled with full-color photos of the highest quality and with instructive line drawings.
