No where near as thorough as Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook. The information was nothing new. Not worth the $18.00 I paid for it.

The unique chart form in the second half of this book provides cat ownerns with an invaluable quick reference when a cat is ailing. My cats, like most, often do not complain when they are not feeling well, and I must figure out what's wrong. This is an excellent, helpful guide.

This book really helped us out because we thought our cat was not only crazy, but also sick. Sick and crazy is a bad combo. Turned out she just had allergies and typical cat spaz behavior. The book goes in depth to let you know what is going on with your pet so you don't have to shell out the big bucks to a vet. If you do have to go to a vet for something you can help them pinpoint the problem much quicker if you have done some research using the book beforehand.
Worth the money if you own cats.

If you love your kitty cat and want to know about possible problems and solutions,
then you need this book!

We've had cats for many years, and had other books over that time. However, most of those are now
packed in storage, and it was really easier to buy a new book than to dig through old boxes.
I am very glad that I got this one!

If I could change anything at all, it would be to have the photos inside be in color. Not sure why
the publisher chose black and white, but perhaps it was to keep the cost of the book down. I really don't
know, but it would have helped quite a bit.

Other than that, this is a fantastic reference book. It is organized well, so it is easy to find what you
might be looking for. Each chapter goes into great detail without being so medically technical that you need
a PhD to understand it. There are also sketches that really add to the book.
There are lists of symptoms, lists of medications, etc etc. Really, it is a very comprehensive guide to your
cat's health. It also has a lot of emergency care treatments as well. I would advise reading those ahead of time,
so you are not trying to comprehend what you should do should your furbaby actually get hurt.

I am VERY glad that this reference book has been added to our home library.
It has already helped with treatment of an itchy spot on one of our kitties, verifying
that we were treating it properly at home. Great book, highly recommended.

I was pleased with the covering of information about normal cat behavior and normal cat functions--so as to better determine such with my own cats. However, the book is not comprehensive in its covering of abnormalites of feline health. I do like that it lists little icons next to various symptoms and diseases referring to the urgency of the situation. This book is a nice base covering of information to know about your cats in general, and for several problems that might arise over their life span.

The Best Home-Vet Cat Book Ever is Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook, Fully Revised and Updated and this is the new updated version.
Really this and Starting from Scratch: How to Correct Behavior Problems in Your Adult Cat behavior book would be the best to have if you could only have two books about your cats.
Beleive me, I have tons of books and loads of cat books. I have the highly touted 'Your Cat' Hodgkins DVM it deals primarily with feline diet and is a great book in that regard but for overall, thorough, easily interpreted cat health & behavioral information I would highly, highly recommend the two books listed above.

I consider that I know my way around a cat pretty darn good but the Starting from Scratch: How to Correct Behavior Problems in Your Adult Cat book has been a real help with a peeing
problem.
Both above-listed books are wonderful. I have had the Cat Owner's Veterinary Handbook for years and just got the updated version linked above.
It's the best cat health book available.

This book is well-organized and highly informative. It is, essentially, a professional veterinary handbook written for the general public. This is the aspect that I appreciate the most. The information is accessible, and the book is full of bits of knowledge that are valuable and little-known, which makes this book good even as a reading-for-pleasure book. This is a great resource and reference for cat owners; I am grateful to have it.

It's a good handy reference. But it's not really a textbook kind of thing. I think it was designed to be more of a quick guide.
