Written by James McKay with contributions from a team of consulting animal care specialists, Comprehensive Health Care for Cats covers everything from the fundamentals of emergency first aid treatment to flea spraying. What really separates this guide from the rest is its ease of use. The book offers a tremendous amount of medical information, but presents it in a manner that is easy to read and understand. Paragraphs are kept short and to the point, with large print headlines helping your eyes to easily scan the page for pertinent information in an emergency situation.
Every disease description includes symptoms, underlying causes, owner action, medical treatment, expected cost of care, and a useful urgency indicator, which is a small colored box that informs you whether a veterinarian should be seen immediately, soon, or not at all. The inclusion of the approximate costs involved in each treatment is an unusual addition and one that can help with planning when you're confronted with a potentially serious illness. In Comprehensive Health Care for Cats, you'll find the information you need to feel secure in the face of any health problem that may arise in your kitty. The veterinarian is sure to thank you, even if the cat, as always, takes you for granted. --Jill LightnerAbout the Author:
