This is our ninth set of Happy, Healthy Pet titles. Like the others, they are books that pet owners can turn to for the essential information they need to raise a happy, healthy pet. All books contain information on:

  • feeding
  • grooming
  • housing
  • health care
  • what to expect from the pet
  • basic training
As our series expands and focuses on different kinds of pets, the emphasis remains on making the pet a companion. Owners of more unusual pets will particularly appreciate the expert advice in these books because professional care for exotic animals can be hard to come by. As always, the instruction in the books is from experts (people who know their pets intimately but always remember what it was like to have one the first time). Happy, Healthy Pet guides are rich with professional quality color photos and are designed to be enjoyable and easy to learn from.Conures are entertaining and agile birds with stunning colors. The unique characteristics of this bird have made them soar in popularity in recent years. Julie Rach, from Carlsbad, California, was an editor at Bird Talk magazine for several years.

From the Back Cover:

Finally, a book with a contemporary approach to your pet that emphasizes total care, training and companionship! You'll not only discover the specific traits of Conures, you'll also learn what the world's like from your bird's perspective; how to feed and keep your bird healthy; and how to enjoy your Conure through training and activities you can do together. The Conure is written by an expert and includes personality traits and unique behaviors. It also addresses preventative health care, cage requirements, and nutritional requirements. Best of all, the book is filled with information-packed sidebars with fun facts that will enrich your interactions with your pet bird and make caring for it an easy and enjoyable experience.
