The Cat Owner's Veterinary HandbookBook - 2009
The Cat Owner's Veterinary Handbook covers all aspects of the cat in sickness and in health. It does not replace the vet but presents helpful advice on home treatments, where this is applicable, and informs the owner when to seek professional advice. Packed full of information, it will be invaluable to the millions of caring owners who regard their cat as "one of the family." It is written in plain, everyday language by an experienced veterinary surgeon who has been involved in the medical and surgical problems of the cat for over 35 years. Topics include the healthy cat in its wild and domesticated state; choosing a suitable kitten, caring for it, and avoiding behavioral problems; common infectious diseases and parasites, including those that can arise when a cat is taken overseas; all parts of the cat are examined from the digestive system to the endocrine system; first aid, accidents, ailments, and the special ailments of feline old age.
