This book is overflowing with useful information about canine health from the point of view of Traditional Chinese Medicine which is presented clearly. This includes dietary advice for different health conditions and even behavioral signs that might indicate future illness; hyperactivity and barking in dogs that later develop heart issues, for example. However, there is one notable problem in putting that information to work acupressure-wise: The illustrations in the book are not very good regarding helping you locate acupoints. There are anatomical descriptions that vary in how useful they are in the text, but the acupressure "charts" are glossy photos of living cats and dogs with a wide squiggle line drawn to indicate meridians (see cover of book). There are also pictures to show point constellations for various ailments. Again, these are little dots on glossy photos of living animals. You cannot see the bones to accurately know where on differing animals these points actually are. Also, the photos vary from dog to cat, so if you are only treating a dog, for instance, and your pet's ailment is illustrated on a cat, this can be frustrating--there are differences! So, unless you are experienced with point finding, you will probably find yourself wanting a canine or feline acuchart. "The Well-Connected Dog: A Guide to Canine Acupressure" has much better point-finding charting which you can check out through the "Look Inside" feature. Still to end of an up note for this book, it is a richly detailed source of practical information concerning TCM and animals.
