Format: Hardcover
THIS BOOK IS FIRST CLASS. A CLEARLY WRITTEN WELL ILLUSTRATED BOOK, IT COVERS ALL ASPECTS OF DOG AILMENTS. WHEN I RECEIVED IT, I WAS SURPRISED AT HOW READABLE IT WAS AND HAVE READ MOST OF IT. THE AUTHOR DOES NOT USE TERMS WHICH ONLY A VET WOULD UNDERSTAND, BUT USES SIMPLE TERMS. IT STARTS BY ADVISING HOW TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE WHEN PURCHASING A PUPPY AND ENDS WITH A SECTION ON THE PROBLEMS OF ELDERLY DOGS. IT IS DIVIDED INTO SECTIONS FOR VARIOUS PROBLEMS: TUMOURS, SKIN AND HAIR, EYES AND VISION ETC. EACH SECTION HAS A QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS COLUMN. THERE IS A FIRST AID AND EMERGENCY SECTION PACKED WITH EXCELLENT INFORMATION. I FOUND IT MOST INTERESTING, AND WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANY CARING DOG OWNER.

This has a huge amount of info on all aspects of the canine body and health. It really is majority about the different diseases etc that dogs can get/suffer from and diagnosis/possible treatment of these...so if you are just looking for a kind of general "how to" groom, feed etc type book, then this is not really it (the title is slightly misleading from this aspect)...although it does contain some of this type of info, it is really all about the health aspects. It has a very good quick reference section for symptoms at the front and the book is logically split into i.e. ears & hearing, eyes and eyesight, repiratory system, cardiovascular system etc etc and then the diseases/illnesses broken down within this. Some nice diagrams of the canine body too (i.e. eyeball, skeleton, muscles). Finally there is a good first aid section at the back.

The only thing I would say is that for someone who hasn't owned a dog before for instance, this could be quite overwhelming and lead you to panic about what your dog could have, so I would recommend you really do only use this as a guide and discuss with your vet immediately if you think there is something wrong with your dog rather than trying to self-diagnose via the book and then worrying about it!

But a great reference book if you are looking for something that goes a bit further than your usual basic dog health books.

Of all the books i've purchased, (and there are a few!!) this is my favourite, it covers EVERYTHING you need to choose, raise and train your pup, even covers an extensive first aid section, and sections covering dog ailments, and anatomical aspects of behaviour and illnesses. It covers the anatomy (not too in depth to be confusing)in understandable ways with diagrams where needed, and the snippets in the borders, that give you a sort of Q and A have been great for summerising a topic. I can't begin to tell you how great this book is, if you need a book with an easily understandable text, but also a great reference section (as i always know the information as i've read it, but find it frustrating trying to find the reference to back up the answer for my coursework when i know i've read it in a specific book but due to a poor, or a lack of reference it can't be found and waste hours re-reading the same section to find the justification). This book is for both the general dog owner, and for people studying for dog related qualifications. As usual Bruce Fogle imparts his pearls of wisdom, simply, without waffle or unneccessary techincal jargon if a dog owner could only have one book this would be my choice.

I had owned a copy of this book for several years, and decided to buy the latest edition for a friend. If you share your home with a dog, it is an invaluable tool. It contains not only information about both minor ailments and more serious conditions, but also clear advice about matters such as exercise, diet and how to live with an older dog. I thoroughly recommend this book.

Bought this after getting it out of the library. Price and condition were excellent with very quick delivery. We are just about to embark on dog ownership for first time now we are retired. This has given us some great guidance on how to choose the right dog, discussions with re- homing kennels, and what we might expect - together with right questions to ask. Would thoroughly recommend as a book that covers all the areas of dog ownership.

Format: Paperback
I have owned dogs all of my life and have read many different books (from health guides to specific breeds and puppy training), but this is the one book that stands out from all the rest and which I honestly could not be without. The main reason why any dog owner will find this an indispensable read and source of information, is the simple fact that it has pretty much everything in it that you could need. It is called `complete' for a reason, because it covers puppy training, dog behavior, diseases and disorders and other health information, feeding, different breeds and so forth. If one of my dogs is ill then I know where to look up their symptoms and see whether they may or may not need possible veterinary treatment. Also it includes first aid for your pet, which is so important as just like humans you never know when you may need to administer lifesaving treatment or ultimately help to save your pets life. Simple things like being able to recognize poisonous plants can inevitably prevent your dog from becoming very ill, or likewise knowing what to do if your dog has a fit and collapses. Whatever breed of dog you may own (or want to own and are thinking of getting), regardless also of their age this book caters to everything.
Dr. Bruce Fogle gives authoritative advice on routine care for every stage of your dog's life, from puppy hood through the active adult years to comfortable old age. He explains clearly what to do if your dog is unwell, how to diagnose what is wrong and suggests when it is necessary to seek professional help. He also offers expert guidance on nutrition and the prevention of common health conditions and complaints, which you will find very important.
