Written by Betsy Brevitz, who left a career as a magazine writer and editor to pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian, this illustrated guide presents complex information in a lively, accessible way, covering everything from choosing the right puppy (or adopting the perfect adult) to caring for the senior dog. Brevitz thoroughly discusses more than 100 canine illnesses—from heart disease and hip dysplasia to cracked footpads and bad breath—and includes detailed information on pet food safety, "designer" dog breeds, homemade diets, vaccine protocols, health profiles for 143 breeds, pet insurance, and many other health topics.
