Well worth it

One of my dogs was diagnosed with Lupus last year. This book has become my number one reference guide for dog health. Great information written by respectable subject matter experts. Highly recommend.

A canine owner's "dictionary"

Great reference book, without getting too technical. I consider it my "canine bible" and "dictionary" rolled into one. Arlene Millman, author of BOOMERANG - A MIRACLE TRILOGY (The tale of a remarkable Boston Terrier).

The Laymans'Merck

No, this does not have all of the info of the Merck Veterinary Manual, but most dog lovers and owners can be easily frustrated by the medical terminlogy etc. THIS however, is simplified and essential info for the average person to really learn so much about their dogs health. My Merck, this book and "Symptoms and Solutions" are my dog bible trio!! I can not tell you how many people I've been able to help w/ dog health problems, solutions and understanding the disease or condition.Worth your money!!

UC Davis Book of Dogs: The best resource

I write a dog advice web column called: ASK OKSANA and this is the book that I have recommended to countless readers. It was originally written for vets by the veterinary faculty of UC DAVIS's Vet School, but so many people encouraged the editor to rewrite it so that lay people could understand it, that he finally agreed and has written the "Bible" for canine healthcare. Each chapter focuses on a different system (gastro-intestinal, cardiac, etc.) and each chapter is written by a different faculty specialist. The index and dictionary are great. If your dog is diagnosed with Addison's, you can look it up and read all about its causes and treatments. There's a great section on how to find food allergies. It explains complex medical issues in terms that an educated, non-medical professional can understand. If you love your dog, then this is one book you cannot afford to be without! It's a bargain at this price!

A must for any dog owner

This book is well written and easy to understand. I get calls all the time from friends asking me to look up different symptoms for them. My neighbor is currently borrowing this book. I am lost without it. My only reason for not giving this book a 5 star rating is that I wish it went into much more explicit detail on symtoms from the mildest cases to the most extreme.
