The A-Z of Dog Diseases and Health Problems is an essential reference for all dog owners, ranging from the specialized breeder with large kennels to the family who own just one dog. The aim of the book is to help dog owners to recognize the signs of illness, to identify the problem, and then to take the appropriate action.
The first section of the book looks at health and husbandry, describing the signs of a healthy dog, feeding, grooming and exercise routines, plus extensive coverage of breeding dogs. The section concludes with when to call the vet and simple first aid measures.
The second section is concerned with the Signs of Diseases and Health Problems, describing signs of ill health and the possible cures. This is cross-referenced to Section III-the Treatment of Diseases and Health Problems, which is a detailed A-Z listing of diseases and health problems, highlighting the signs, the causes and the treatment for each condition.
Illustrated throughout with top-quality photographs, this is the first time a veterinary book has been made wholly accessible to the lay person, allowing every responsible owner to take the best possible care of their dog
