it is really thick and it does have a lot of information, but things like 'both male and female gerbils have a ventral marking gland on the abdomen' is not a fact that i am likely to need. this may be a book many people will enjoy reading but not much help in an emergency. like saying that antivenom is the only thing likely to work for a rattlesnake bite e(but don;t bother looking under R for rattlesnake, its not there). when old Firecracker had an encounter with a rattlesnake, luckily i keep big syrings without the needle filled with benadryl cough medicine, in the medicine cabinet, her mouth and she is still with us.
Having said all that it is a decent basic reference to have around the house for the usual questions (FAQs). It gives a general understanding of "the nature of the beast" without getting deeply technical. Which is what it is supposed to do. The only thing that truly annoyed me was the "cloned" information I found between the dog and cat sections. Duplication like this reminds me of tricks used by low-class authors to take up more space, as though their books are to be sold by the pound (weight, not English money).
Personally, I would much rather have one book on canines, one on felines, etc. Here, I have a big, thick book the information contained in which does me little good except, as I said, FAQs of a general interest nature and information regarding cats and dogs.
All in all, nice try.
The book has been extremely helpful in helping me to focus on the issue presented by the animal and know what steps I need to take to solve the iss and when more professional help is needed. The book is is well laid out and easy to locate the information you seek. Covering dogs, cats & horses was a bonus that can be used by me and my daughter as well.
