Cats may seem mysterious, but this indispensable book takes the mystery out of caring for them. Dr. Terri McGinnis, a practicing veterinarian with over twenty years’ experience, clearly reviews every aspect of cat care: anatomy, daily care, diagnostic medicine, medical emergencies, home medical care, as well as breeding and reproduction. The Well Cat Book is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide that answers the questions cat owners ask most often about cat care: • How can I get my cat to stop scratching the furniture? • What does body posture indicate about my cat’s mood? • What’s the right diet for a kitten, a new mother, an older cat? • What vaccinations does my cat need, and when? • What does it mean if my cat is feverish, excessively thirsty, or having trouble breathing? • If I have more than one cat, what are the precautions I need to take to protect their helath? • How can I prevent or plan my cat’s pregnancy? • If my cat has an accident, what do I do? • Which problems can I handle myself and when do I call a veterinarian? With over 120 illustrations, a general index for rapid reference, and an invaluable index of signs of illness, The Well Cat Book gives cat owners the knowledge, skills, and confidence to raise a well cat.
