From the Inside Flap

The A–Z of Dog Diseases and Health Problems is an essential reference for all dog owners, ranging from the specialised breeder with large kennels to the family who own just one dog. The aim of the book is to help dog owners to recognise the signs of illness, to identify the problem, and then to take the appropriate action. The first section of the book looks at health and husbandry, describing the signs of a healthy dog, feeding, grooming and exercise routines, plus extensive coverage of breeding dogs. The section concludes with when to call the veterinary surgeon and simple first aid measures. The second section is concerned with the Signs of Diseases and Health Problems, describing signs of ill health and the possible causes. This is cross-referenced to Section III — the Treatment of Diseases and Health Problems, This is a detailed A–Z listing of diseases and health problems, highlighting the signs, the causes and the treatment for each condition. Illustrated throughout with top-quality photographs, this is the first time a veterinary book has been made wholly accessible to the lay person, allowing every responsible owner to take the best possible care of their dog.

Format: Hardcover
A-Z of Dog Diseases and Health Problems: Signs, Diagnoses, Causes, Treatment is an excellent resource for all dog owners. It provides helpful tips and answers to common problems, as well as signs which signal the need for a trip to the vet. Best of all, it's written in an easy to follow format and explained in terms that the average dog owner can comprehend - even when you're in a panic from Fluffy's incessant whining at 3:00am. In fact, the veterinary clinic where I work frequently uses it to help dog owners understand their pet's problem. I'd recommend keeping it right next to your doggie first aid kit!

This book was written in the U.K. and I found the writing is slanted toward information not pertaining as much to breeds in the U.S. The book was filled with grammatical and typographical errors, and it is out-of-date for anyone ordering in the year 2000 or later. The A-Z descriptions were trite, and I was unable to find many things I was looking for, such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease and other current diagnoses. Sadly, this book was of no help to me.

We just adopted a 2 year old black lab named Abbott. My husband has always grown up with dogs, but, not me. I have had cats, and this was all new to me!
So, it was time to get precise information, and this book is essential for dog owners. The books deals with signs and symptoms, diagnosis, causes of disease, and treatments. The handy format is easy to use and is concise. All types of breeds are discussed, which I found very interesting. The disease pathology is professional and informative enough to satisfy consultation.
A must for new and old time dog owners!
