The A-Z of Dog Diseases and Health Problems is an essential reference for all dog owners, ranging from the specialized breeder with large kennels to the family who own just one dog. The aim of the book is to help dog owners to recognize the signs of illness, to identify the problem, and then to take the appropriate action. The first section of the book looks at health and husbandry, describing the signs of a healthy dog, feeding, grooming and exercise routines, plus extensive coverage of breeding dogs. The section concludes with when to call the vet and simple first aid measures. The second section is concerned with the Signs of Diseases and Health Problems, describing signs of ill health and the possible cures. This is cross-referenced to Section III-the Treatment of Diseases and Health Problems, which is a detailed A-Z listing of diseases and health problems, highlighting the signs, the causes and the treatment for each condition. Illustrated throughout with top-quality photographs, this is the first time a veterinary book has been made wholly accessible to the lay person, allowing every responsible owner to take the best possible care of their dog.

This book is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice of veterinarians. Readers should regularly consult a veterinarian in matters relating to their dog’s health, and particularly with respect to any symptoms that may require medical attention. In writing this book, we have described the signs and symptoms that will lead you to a preliminary idea of what is happening with your dog, so you can weigh the severity of the problem. Knowing when to call your veterinarian is very important. Delays can be dangerous. At the same time, we have sought to provide guidance for the acute or emergency situations that you must handle on your own until you can get your dog to a veterinarian. Life-saving procedures such as artificial respiration and heart massage, and what to do in the event of poisonings, obstetrical problems, and other emergencies are explained step by step. But a veterinary handbook is not a substitute for professional care. Advice from a book can never be as helpful or as safe as actual medical advice. No text can replace the interview and the hands-on examination that enables a veterinarian to make a speedy and accurate diagnosis. However, the knowledge provided in this book will enable you to more effectively cooperate and better understand your interactions with your veterinarian. You’ll be more alert to the signs of health problems and better able to describe them. You’ll know more about basic care for your dog, and you’ll be prepared in an emergency.

Dogs are now arguably the most popular companion animals, and the general wellbeing of the family pet is of paramount importance to many people. Today far more veterinary surgeons are concerned with the welfare of dogs than with any other animal. Veterinary Notes for Dog Owners provides a detailed, authoritative and easily understood text for the professional breeder and pet owner alike, as well as for veterinary surgeons and nurses looking for clear, up-to-the minute explanations of sometimes complex issues. Twenty authors, all experts in their particular fields, have come together under the astute editorial guidance of leading veterinary surgeon Trevor Turner BVetMed, MRCVS, to cover all aspects of canine health care and management. There are detailed sections on general and inherited disease, the organ systems and infectious and parasitic diseases; on nutrition and feeding; on first aid, poisoning, and nursing the sick dog; canine dentistry and hernias; on behavior and behavioral problems. Invaluable advice on choosing a dog and building kennels is included as well as such topics as understanding pet insurance. This book is destined to become the standard work on canine health care and management, the essential manual for anybody who takes a serious interest in the welfare of dogs.

Scientific and Humane Issues in the Use of Random-Source Dogs and Cats in Research examines the value of random-source animals in biomedical research and the role of Class B dealers who acquire and resell live dogs and cats to research institutions. Findings include that, while some random-source dogs and cats may be necessary and desirable for National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded research, there is no clear need to obtain those animals from Class B dealers. Several options for random-source animal acquisition already exist and additional options are recommended, which would further ensure the welfare of these animals and foster a positive public image for NIH. While the scientific community has recognized and responded to concerns for humane treatment of animals in research, government oversight has thus far been unable to fully enforce the Animal Welfare Act in regard to Class B dealers of live animals. Although the animals acquired by Class B dealers are destined for research--and NIH research in particular--the standard of care while in the possession of some Class B dealers requires an inordinate amount of government enforcement and is not commensurate with the policies of most NIH-funded research laboratories. This dichotomy of standards reflects poorly on public perceptions of NIH and jeopardizes animal welfare. This book will be crucial for NIH and other groups using random-source animals in research, including veterinary schools and research facilities. Animal welfare advocates, policy makers, and concerned pet owners will also find this a vital and informative work for reconciling the needs of research with the welfare of animals.
