A world-renowned animal hospital shares its total-care program for dogs
"Angell Memorial's reputation in the animal world is unchallenged, and who better to tell their story than one of the best dog writers in the business. . . . A perfect combination and a must for this important bookshelf."**Betty White, actress, author, and animal welfare activist
Angell Memorial Animal Hospital boasts an innovative and authoritative staff and a reputation second to none. Now for the first time, Angell Memorial is teaming up with an award-winning journalist, Darlene Arden, to offer its unprecedented preventive care program to puppy and dog owners everywhere in this comprehensive, user-friendly book, The Angell Memorial Animal Hospital Book of Wellness and Preventive Care for Dogs.
Too often dog owners wait until a pet is struck with an illness to seek out veterinary advice. The importance of implementing a program that prevents illness from occurring is key to a happy and healthy pet.
Topics covered include:
- Dentistry, grooming, and nutrition
- Emergencies, surgery, first aid, and vaccinations
- Training and behavior
- Caring for middle-aged and advanced-aged dogs
Angell's unique preventive care handouts and brochure pages (offered for the first time to the general public) are also included. Now, through this book, readers and their veterinarians can create a preventive care program that mimics Angell's to fit the individual dog and lifestyle.
Overall, this is a calm and sensible book, one that I am sure I will be referring to many times in the future.
A MUST HAVE for any dog owner.
