Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is our sixth set of Happy, Healthy Pet titles. Like the others, they are books pet owners can turn to for the essential information they need to raise a healthy pet.

All books contain information on:

  • feeding
  • housing
  • grooming
  • health care
  • what to expect from the pet
  • basic training
As our series expands and focuses on different kinds of pets, the emphasis remains on making the pet a companion. In addition, owners of more unusual pets will particularly appreciate the expert advice in these books because professional care for their animals may be difficult to come by. As always, the instruction is from expert—people who know their pet intimately, but also remember what it was like to have one for the first time.

Happy, Healthy Pet guides are rich with professional quality color photos and are designed to be enjoyable and easy to learn from.

Synopsis:

At last, a book about your pet that emphasizes total care, training and companionship!

The Guinea Pig includes beautiful color photos of these wonderful pets, a description of recognized guinea pig breeds, sound advice on keeping both indoor and outdoor guinea pigs, insights into your guinea pig's behavior and much more. You'll learn the right way to hold your guinea pig, how to introduce your guinea pig to other pets in the family, as well as the latest in small animal health and emergency care.

The Guinea Pig is written by a small animal expert, and best of all, it's full of easy-to-reference sidebars and fun facts to make caring for your pet guinea pig easy and enjoyable.

Synopsis:

The authoritative information and advice you need, illustrated throughout with full-color photographs--now revised and redesigned to be even more reader-friendly!

* An illustrated look at colors and breeds

* The story of how guinea pigs were domesticated

* Advice on selecting a guinea pig

* Pointers on feeding, grooming, and health

* Tips on understanding guinea pig behavior

* Fun activities to enjoy with your guinea pig
