Bruce Fogle, DVM, is the world's bestselling practising vet. After graduating from Ontario Veterinary College, he pursued his postgraduate veterinary training at the Zoological Society of London before establishing his highly respected veterinary practice and Europe's first emergency and critical care clinic, both in London. He lectures internationally, frequently appears on TV and radio, is the author of many acclaimed DK titles and resides in London and Arundel, Sussex.From Booklist:
Fogle, a Canadian with an extensive veterinary practice in the U.K., has produced a useful and comprehensive reference for both the public library and the pet-owner's library. Chapters are arranged into three sections: "Your Family Dog," "Diseases and Disorders," and "First Aid and Emergencies." The section on diseases is the most extensive, with chapters covering topics such as nutrition, the immune system, the various body systems, and geriatric health. Within these chapters are entries on specific conditions, terms, treatments, and so on. The text is clear and nontechnical, with a good glossary at the end. There are many sidebars, including weight charts, lists of breeds at risk for particular ailments, and questions and answers. Flow charts for specific processes such as whelping can tell a pet owner when something is normal and when the vet needs to be called.
A good introductory section covers selecting, living with, and training a dog. A thoughtful consideration of euthanasia comes essentially from the Western tradition but acknowledges that for other traditions the decision may be fraught with conflict. The "First Aid and Emergencies" section has a flow-charted "emergency action plan," a suggested first-aid kit, and recommended first-aid actions until one can get the animal to the vet. The section on poisoning covers dangerous household items, plants, and animals. A "Clinical Signs Rapid Reference" can be found at the beginning of the volume and a good general index at the end.
As with all DK titles, the text is liberally illustrated with high-quality diagrams and photographs. Illustrations of diseases or injuries are presented clearly. Recommended for public libraries for both the reference and circulating collections. RBB
