Dr. Bruce Fogle is the world's best-selling practising vet. He has numerous DK books to his credit including 'natural Dog care' and the 'RSPCA Complete Dog Training Manual' and has gained international acclaim for his expertise in animal behaviour. He is also the father of Ben Fogle, the star of the BBC programme Castaway. Bruce now looks after his son's dog Inca who captured the public's heart during his time on the Scottish island of Taransay.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
