9781522990932: Do I Call the Vet?: And what to do in the meantime

This treasury of information, reassurance, tips, and first aid techniques for horses, dogs and cats is an invaluable resource for all who care for animals.
Do I Call the Vet? and what to do in the meantime was written in response to requests from many of Dr. Chapman's clients who have come to rely on his knowledge and understanding of animals and the illnesses, accidents and ailments which beset them. 

Dr Chapman practises veterinary medicine in the old-fashioned way: feeling with his fingertips, using his eyes, ears, sense of smell and a large dose of intuition. He mixes experience with wisdom, combining old and new practices, techniques and technologies. 

Do I Call the Vet? and what to do in the meantime contains

  • information as to when it is vital to call the vet
  • cures and remedies for common animal maladies,
  • many well-proven and simple health-promoting practices for otherwise healthy animals
  • preventative measures which help to maintain sustained animal wellbeing
  • recipes for mashes for horses
  • a list of homeopathic remedies which he has found to be effective. 
    Keep it handy: you never know when you will need it.
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

    Review:

    WRITTEN in a delightfully friendly manner and very easy to understand, this is a lovely book for clients who keep horses, dogs and cats. Graham Duncanson Veterinary Times Magazine

    The purpose of this handbook is to pass on information that works - it is not a scientific manual but a practical, quick reference for home treatment.
    DO I CALL THE VET? subtitled "and what to do in themeantime is the name of a ring-bound volume of memoirs-cum-manual by 80-year-old Richard Chapman, who qualified at Bristol in 1958 and has spent 57 years in practice, nine in the UK, the rest in Australia.
    He has been in mixed practice, handling mainly equine work, and in sole practice and has studied holistic and alternative medicine, natural medicine and folk or "bush" remedies.
    The book was written in response to requests from clients; it has nine chapters on horses and 12 on dogs and cats, with four appendices which include recipes for mashes for horses, poultices, alternative treatments and some "miscellaneous items".
     In the foreword, he writes: "When I started work, veterinary practice was very different from the way it is today ... we had none of today's diagnostic tools, such as ultrasound and x-rays, not to mention all the other lovely toys. Instead we had to hone our senses. We used our eyes; we had to develop brains in our fingertips so that we could 'feel' what was happening; we used our sense of smell; and we learned to listen to our intuition and experience. These arts are now almost dead."

    Extract from article in Veterinary Practice Magazine

    Extract from a review of the book: Do I call the Vet? by Professor Alistair Barr MA VetMB LLB PhD DVR DEO DipECVS CertSAO MRCVS, School of Clinical Veterinary Sciences, University of Bristol, England, UK 
    '...there is much descriptive material in the book, derived from the author's experience, that may help the uninitiated recognise what may be wrong and encourage them to seek veterinary advice...there is sound advice throughout the book on various aspects of management including diets reflecting what the species has evolved to eat "in the wild" and management regimes that reflect the benefits of, for example, grazing at pasture in horses.'

    Very handy book to have on-hand for that unexpected crisis.In his foreword, Richard Chapman comments that the sad result of the cost of veterinary services today means horses either go without treatment or are euthanised, so he has presented a comprehensive book that is not a scientific manual but a practical quick reference for home treatments ... the book is ideal for a quick reference for the many injuries, illnesses and conditions that horse owners experience with animals in their care. The topics cover the whole horse and the environmental factors that can affect it.Hoofbeats Magazine
