Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The experts reveal how to interpret and understand your dog's symptoms

and what steps to take to ensure its health.

This comprehensive and practical book is designed to assist dog owners in understanding their pets' bodies and health based on signs and symptoms of disease, and in determining the most common medical problems that might cause particular symptoms.

Adopting the "decision chart" format from popular symptom guides for human ailments, such as the American Medical Association's Guide to Your Family's Symptoms and Take Care of Yourself, five leading veterinarians have designed a user-friendly chart system that will guide a pet owner from noting the symptom and observing the dog's behavior to understanding the associated signs of an illness, the possible conditions, and the best steps to take. Filled with more than two hundred charts in an easy-to-follow two-color format and medical drawings, The Veterinarians' Guide to Your Dog's Symptoms is the indispensable reference for dog owners. It not only considers the problems of sick and injured pets, but also addresses the needs of healthy animals. It has all the information a dog owner needs:

What a healthy dog should look like

Flow charts to the 150 most common symptoms

Training and behavior issues, such as housebreaking and aggression

Emergency first aid, including how to apply bandages and create

a makeshift muzzle

A glossary of veterinary diagnostic tests and medical terms

With this unique combination of medical information and advice, plus an innovative chart system, The Veterinarians' Guide to Your Dog's Symptoms will enable pet owners to help their dogs live long, healthy, and happy lives.

Synopsis:

A valuable guide to common canine ailments and their symptoms is accompanied by more than 150 charts and illustrations, as well as advice on preventive care, emergency first aid, a list of breeds, and information about diagnostic tests and medical procedures. Original. 25,000 first printing.
