A Complete Book of Dog Care
Author: Eric Allan
First published in 1983, "Every Dog" now appears in a fully revised and expanded edition. Written for ordinary dog owners, it covers every aspect of the care and health of dogs of all breeds. Two experienced veterinarians and authors have written this authoritative and detailed guide, which covers a dog's life from puppyhood to old age. It describes all canine diseases and conditions, symptoms, prevention and treatment. It tells dog owners how to care for illnesses and injuries at home and when to call for a vet. Warning symptoms in the margin denote specific characteristics and warnings related to particular diseases. The book helps people selecting and caring for their first dogs. Buyers and breeders are given charts and notations of inherited disorders and traits to help them as they choose their dogs. One major new feature of the Third Edition is a separate chapter covering holistic and natural medicine for dogs, including acupuncture, natural medicine, herbal remedies, aromatherapy, homeopathy, flower essences, tissue salts, chiropractic massage and grooming. The chapter on old age and death is now supplemented by a section on death and coping with the grief that can follow the death of a loved animal. "Every Dog" -- now more informative than ever -- is an indispensable part of every dog owner's library.

The second part describes the main holistic modalities and their relevance when animals become sick. What they are, how they work, when they are useful, and how to find a practitioner. Also includes chapters on osteopathy, homeopathy, acupuncture, Bach's flower remedies, and herbal medicine. The third part of the book discusses a range of common health problems in dogs and cats, both from a conventional veterinary point of view and from an holistic perspective, and aims to help the owner understand the condition they are facing, as well as providing tips on how to supplement their veterinarian's advice and treatment.
