Likened by Pet News to a Dr. Spock for canines, this is the one dog book owners need to ensure their pets’ health and well-being. Dr. Terri McGinnis, a practicing veterinarian with over twenty years’ experience, thoroughly covers every aspect of dog care: anatomy, daily care, diagnostic medicine, medical emergencies, and home medical care, as well as breeding and reproduction. The Well Dog Book is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide that answers the questions most frequently asked by dog owners:• What’s the best way to house-train my dog?• How can I remove tar or paint from my dog’s coat?• What’s the right diet for a puppy, a new mother, an older dog?• What vaccinations does my dog need, and when?• How can I get rid of fleas on my dog and in my house?• What does it mean if my dog is feverish, excessively thirsty, irritable?• What are the special needs of my pregnant dog? How can I help her during delivery?• If my dog has an accident, what do I do?• What problems can I handle myself and when do I need a veterinarian?With over 120 illustrations, a general index for rapid reference, and an invaluable index of signs, The Well Dog Book gives dog owners the knowledge, skills, and confidence to raise a well dog.
