KIRKUS REVIEW

For those with their first puppy this has a tremendous amount of information, Instruction, warnings and suggestions for proper dog care, and its coverage of everything connected with dog ownership is detailed. An opening chapter examines the whole physical body of the dog and is followed by material on nutrition and feeding, travel and nursing, diseases, accidents, mating and whelping -- and old age. There's information on grooming and training, on recommended home treatments, on bringing up a puppy, on operations -- on veterinarians for that matter, and on recent scientific discoveries in medicine and the development of the young dog. A sensible approach to human-canine relationships makes this especially helpful for new owners.
