Want to help your dog avoid developing medical problems like skin infections and ear infections? The simple preventative care recommendations that Dr. Rachele Baker discusses in this book will help you keep your furry best friend healthy and happy.
"While most dog owners are well aware of the importance of providing their furry friends with regular veterinarian checkups, many aren't aware of the steps they can personally take to ensure the optimal health of their dogs. Baker is a dog lover, author, and a veterinarian in practice in California since 2001. Her book covers the nutritional needs of dogs and demystifies the language found on many dog foods. She discusses the differences in feeding needs for dogs at all stages of their lives. Baker also shares strategies for helping one's dog maintain a healthy weight and gives ideas on how to make exercise a fun and healthy experience for both the dog and her human companion. She also discusses dental care, fleas and ticks, and necessary vaccinations.
Dr. Rachele Baker's Dog Health Care is an informative and accessible guide that should be on every dog owner's bookshelf. I was especially interested in her advice on nutrition, weight control, and exercise options. My Labrador retriever loves her food, as all Labs do, and keeping her both satiated and trim is an ongoing challenge. I've started following some of the author's suggestions and have been pleased with the results. The information she provides on ticks is also invaluable as ticks seem to be everywhere and impossible to avoid. I appreciated Baker's conversational style, choice of essential topics, and down-to-earth attitude. Dog Health Care: 7 Simple Ways To Keep Your Dog Healthy is highly recommended." - Jack Magnus, Readers' Favorite
