REWARD YOUR PET WITH A LONGER, HAPPIER, AND HEALTHIER LIFE!

Here is THE book for those enthusiasts who want to take intelligent, loving care of their pets — whether that pet be a dog, cat, bird, fish, or some exotic species. This illustrated, A-Z quick-answer guide from popular veterinarian Chris Pinney covers it all: preventive health care, diet, grooming, training, diseases, traveling with pets, selection, first aid, anatomy, holistic pet care, and much more.

The new Third Edition has been updated to include a new directory of the most common drugs used in pet care; a glossary of veterinary terminology; the latest information on the pet vaccination controversy; advice for reducing stress and improving mental health in pets; the newest diagnostic and treatment methods for diabetes, arthritis, epilepsy, and other diseases; tips on caring for injured and orphaned wildlife; and a dollar-saving listing of Ten Steps For Reducing the Cost of Owning a Pet.

If you love your pet and want to be a truly informed pet owner — this guide is just what the veterinarian ordered!
