Trevor Turner has lived with dogs all his life. He qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London in the late nineteen fifties and shortly afterwards established a suburban practice which has grown into a large veterinary hospital of which he is the principal. Writing and talking widely on canine and associated topics, he has received from the British Small Animal Veterinary Association the prestigious Melton Award in recognition of his work in forging links between the veterinary profession, breeders and the pet owning public. Married to a veterinary nurse Jean, they currently share their lives with three dogs and four cats.From Library Journal:
Twenty experts have written chapters discussing various aspects of canine health care: the importance of selecting the right breed; nutrition and feeding; genetic, infectious, and parasitic diseases; the organ systems; and medical and surgical conditions, including nursing and hospitalization. The book does an excellent job of meeting its goal "to inform, guide, and assist all those involved with the welfare of dogs." The dog owner will be better able to care for the well dog and will have a better understanding of what can go wrong and how problems can be corrected. Although intended for British audiences, references to local laws, etc., do not detract from the book's value in the United States. Written in layperson's language, this is a comprehensive and excellent reference for larger pet collections.
