The Complete Healthy Dog Handbook is a superb, reassuring, and comprehensive work. "Dr. Spock for dogs."—Elle magazine wrote of its first edition, originally published as The Hound Health Handbook, and now completely revised and updated. Today's dog owners are more attuned to their pets' health and well-being than ever before. And with good reason: Americans spend upward of $10 billion annually on their canine companions. The Complete Healthy Dog Handbook is the one essential and truly readable book for these devoted dog owners. Surpassingly clear and complete, with more than 100 illustrations and diagrams, it covers everything from choosing the best dog to puppy care, nutrition, vaccines, behavior, first aid, and senior care, plus thorough discussions of more than 100 canine illnesses. Reflecting the latest advances in veterinary medicine, this edition offers up-to-the-minute advice on "design dog" breeds, pet food safety, homemade diets, changing vaccine protocols, new medications for allergies, car sickness, obesity, and heart disease, developments in surgery and cancer treatment, pet insurance, and more. With The Complete Healthy Dog Handbook, the vet is always in.

A Complete Guide to Protecting Your Pooch, Indoors and Out We know their favorite spots to scratch. We know which funny noises make them cock their heads. But, do we know how to keep our dogs safe? The truth is, we often do not consider what hazards lurk in our home and garden until an incident occurs. Each year, thousands of dogs and puppies are seriously hurt and even killed by a host of easily preventable accidents. The Safe Dog Handbook teaches you how to ensure a safe home and outdoor experience for your dogs. Full of practical information about everything from poisonous everyday foodstuffs and ornamental plants to choking hazards, this book is an essential guide for any dog owner. Seemingly innocent everyday items and routines can cause serious accidents. A few chewed leaves from an azalea bush can poison a small dog. A chew-happy puppy is not likely to differentiate between a rope toy and a lamp cord. However, prevention and preparedness are easily achieved through the information in The Safe Dog Handbook—without becoming a “safety freak.” Thorough understanding of canine hazards will breed comfort and reassurance and assuage fear. The Safe Dog Handbook provides vital, easily accessible information that any caring dog owner should have.

While some dogs diagnosed with cancer can be treated successfully and survive for years, a diagnosis of cancer for your dog often means the time you have left together is limited. In this important new book, author Lola Ball provides answers to the question of what you the owner can do and what your alternatives are if your dog is struck by cancer. The most important first steps are to arm yourself with knowledge about the different types of cancers, medicines, treatment alternatives and prognoses. But what if treatments do not succeed? What are your options then? This is the point at which most owners are left alone not knowing what to do. Based on her two experiences with cancer in her own dogs, Lola explores the range of choices you do have and strategies you can employ to make the best of the time you have remaining with your dog. You will learn: Many of the concepts and techniques employed in human hospice and palliative care can be applied successfully to dogs with cancer. The power of continuing to interact with your dog-walks, petting, grooming, massage-for as long as the dog is physically able to enjoy it. What can be done in terms of nutrition and other forms of natural care to make your dog as strong and comfortable as he can be given the situation. How "natural death" can be an alternative to euthanasia in some cases. How other owners facing the same issues have dealt with cancer in their dogs.

Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets, Second Edition provides an introduction to nutrition of the healthy dog and cat and an extensive discussion of medical disorders that can be managed in part through diet. Presenting easy-to-follow recipes that can be prepared at home, this new edition of Donald Strombeck’s classic handbook has been completely rewritten by new author Patricia A. Schenck to reflect the latest nutritional recommendations based on current research. New chapter topics include feeding the puppy and kitten; feeding the pregnant or lactating dog or cat; feeding the senior pet; feeding the performance dog; and the role of diet in pets with cancer. Diets are now listed together in a cookbook style for ease of use, and recipes are adjustable for any size dog or cat, allowing exact nutritional values to be calculated. Nutrient content for protein, fat, carbohydrate, and fiber have been provided for every diet, along with the nutrient density. A companion website features downloadable spreadsheets with complete nutritional breakdowns for each recipe. Useful for both veterinarians and pet owners alike, Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets, Second Edition is a unique handbook written by an expert in the field providing an introduction to the nutritional management of dogs and cats with easy-to-use recipes for home-prepared diets. Clarification: Calcium Carbonate We’ve had some questions from readers regarding the use of the term “calcium carbonate,” which is listed as an ingredient in a number of the diets found in this book, and therefore wanted to clarify what is meant by this ingredient. Baking soda comes in two forms: sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate. The sodium bicarbonate version is widely available as “baking soda” and is commonly used in baking, but none of the recipes in this book use it as an ingredient. The calcium carbonate version of baking soda is sometimes sold as “baking soda substitute” and sometimes referred to as simply “baking soda.” To avoid confusing sodium bicarbonate and calcium carbonate, any time the calcium carbonate type of baking soda has been used in a diet in this book, the ingredient includes the specific term “calcium carbonate.” There are several manufacturers of calcium carbonate baking soda; for example, Amazon carries the Ener-G Foods product baking soda substitute. Calcium carbonate can also be sold for garden use, which is non-food-grade, so to avoid the use of the garden product in foods, the term “baking soda” was used in this book instead to indicate that readers should be sure to select a food-appropriate ingredient.

Viv is a highly respected Wellington vet who actively uses holistic methods. She had a weekly session on National Radio with Wayne Mowat, where people would ring in with questions about how to look after their pets. Holistic health is about keeping pets well with good food, appropriate exercise for age and body type, and stimulating the mind for emotional and mental health. Holistic health is also very much a preventive approach, providing a healthy and solid platform of health, and using diet, exercise and environment to keep in balance. This book is very thorough and looks at every aspect of pet care in general, from how to feed a tiny kitten, the cat who sprays inside, the dog who is overanxious; first-aid treatments for injuries; right through to looking after an animal with cancer. It covers the holistic approach to pet care; nutrition and diet; holistic therapies such as acupuncture, homeopathy, flower essences, allergy testing and elimination, herbal medicine, chiropractic; common problems and treatments - complementary therapy treatments and techniques; holistic first aid; raising puppies and kittens holistically; and an holistic approach to euthanasia.
