Dogs are now arguably the most popular companion animals, and the general wellbeing of the family pet is of paramount importance to many people. Today far more veterinary surgeons are concerned with the welfare of dogs than with any other animal.

Veterinary Notes for Dog Owners provides a detailed, authoritative and easily understood text for the professional breeder and pet owner alike, as well as for veterinary surgeons and nurses looking for clear, up-to-the minute explanations of sometimes complex issues. Twenty authors, all experts in their particular fields, have come together under the astute editorial guidance of leading veterinary surgeon Trevor Turner BVetMed, MRCVS, to cover all aspects of canine health care and management. There are detailed sections on general and inherited disease, the organ systems and infectious and parasitic diseases; on nutrition and feeding; on first aid, poisoning, and nursing the sick dog; canine dentistry and hernias; on behavior and behavioral problems. Invaluable advice on choosing a dog and building kennels is included as well as such topics as understanding pet insurance. This book is destined to become the standard work on canine health care and management, the essential manual for anybody who takes a serious interest in the welfare of dogs.
