Publisher Comments:

This is our seventh set of Happy, Healthy Pet titles. These latest additions will bring our series up to fifty-five titles, and 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 experts — 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:

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

Frogs and toads are perennial favorite pets. They include easy-to-care for breeds and intriguing, exotic varieties. For both first-time pet owners and life-long hobbyists, frogs and toads can make fascinating pets, but it is essential to learn how to care for them properly. With colorful photos, charts, and tables, this guide covers the basics, including:

  • Choosing your frog or toad

  • Creating and maintaining your pet's new habitat

  • Feeding and caring for your frog or toad

  • Keeping your pet healthy

You'll also learn about the varieties of frogs and toads, and about their existence in the wild.

Synopsis:

From a "common sense" approach to keeping frogs and toads to conservation concerns, Terry Gampper's extensive herp knowledge covers all the bases. Photos.
