This book is exceptionally well oulined and written. Easy reading for pre-teen and adult pet companions. I have purchased many copies of this book and given them as gifts since it was published in early 2001. I was honored when they contacted me to use my canine companion's picture in this book. If you look on page 78 - you'll see a picture of Miss Scarlet Belle who I adopted in 1990 and now has her legacy with The ASPCA'S COMPLETE GUIDE TO PET CARE. This book makes a wonderful gift for anyone who is looking to adopt or has newly adopted any pet ranging from reptiles to birds!

Sometimes you don't know how to take care of a pet and this book is great for helping. It's easy to read and understand. It helped me when I bought my rabbit and when I bought my dog awhile back. It's a great book for also just reading for fun. Pets are great!
