Good book

Good book for veterinary student

Highly recommended for cat owners

Although I do not have a cat, I purchased this book as a gift for a new kitten owner. I have dogs and have the dog version...and it's a great reference book. Will definitely give you peace of mind when the time comes that you are facing the dilemma as to whether to contact the (emergency) veterinarian during the night or look up the symptoms first to see if you can wait until the day to see your own vet. It will also help you relay terminology that you both can understand to your vet to better define the problem that your pet is experiencing. I would definitely check this one out and have it included in my pet library of reference books.

Basic Guide, Helpful for Quick Reference

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.

Good overall book.

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.


.I read everything I could find at the local library concerning diagnosis of symptoms displayed by my cat. The technical books in the library were useless because of the plethora of technical terms that the average layman like me hasn't a clue on the meaning of. Also, the organization, or should I say lack of organization, of the other books made them tedious to follow. Many references and cross-references ad infinitum. I had to tease out answers to simple questions and, even then, didn't fully understand the points they were trying to make. I've had cats for most of my life and thought I was an expert, but I was stumped and worried about my little friend's symptomatic behavior. I needed help, and fast.Five minutes with the guide to symptoms by Garvey, et al, answered my immediate question and led to a quick solution. The book is filled with well rendered drawings that illustrate and complement the text. The people who put this book together obviously know cats intimately and understand cat behavior. The writing is easy to understand and to the point. It also explains the "whys" behind the facts. The table at the back is both comprehensive and easy for the average reader to understand. This is a book to be USED, not just read. No book is perfect but this one comes close and gave me what I needed. ....I'm totally satisfied with it.

Excellent reference. Contains much valuable information.

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.
