This book is one of more than 175 titles in Barron's extensive line of Complete Pet Owner's Manuals. All titles in this series present pet care information for non-specialist animal owners and pet buyers. These heavily illustrated manuals are filled with facts about the title animal's origins and traits, as well as advice on purchasing, housing, feeding, health care, and much more. Each book is individually written by a trainer, breeder, veterinarian, or other animal specialist. Titles in this series cover every popular breed of dog and cat, as well as freshwater and marine fish for aquarium hobbyists, lizards and other terrarium pets, many bird varieties, and virtually all other animals that are kept as pets. All books are filled with vivid color photos and instructive line illustrations.
