"In this practical and informative guide, Jack Hanna introduces you to pet basics and a pet's inestimable value in your life. Through a series of questions he helps you establish what type of pet would be best suited to your personal preferences, lifestyle, time, energy, and other resources. He then goes on to discuss every type of pet imaginable - from the common to the not-so-common. In chapters devoted to each type of pet, he discusses, breed by breed, the pros and cons and the needs and requirements of each particular animal. He explains why a household of kids might not be the best environment for a cockatoo, and why a Scottish deerhound could be an excellent addition to your home. Throughout, he includes little-known facts about animals and recounts some of his entertaining experiences with them. More than a reference guide, Jack Hanna's Ultimate Guide to Pets provides information on general health care, diet, and housing, on socialization needs and compatible roommates, and on solutions to common (and uncommon) pet problems."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
