Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
In his new book, “The Truth about Dog and Cat Treatments and Anomalies” (published by iUniverse), author and doctor of veterinary medicine, Robert L. Ridgway, helps pet owners identify their pets’ medical conditions and teaches them how to prevent and treat them at home, as well as how to know when to seek help from a veterinarian.
Ridgway uses everyday language to guide readers through the treatment of many common ailments – skin infections, heartworms, stomach problems and more – that affect pets. According to Ridgway, many of the suggestions can actually improve pets’ behavior. Readers will learn to avoid using household substances that can harm pets, and they’ll even find guidance on how to approach the complicated issues involved with end-of-life care.
An excerpt from “The Truth about Dog and Cat Treatments and Anomalies”:
“It does not take a rocket scientist to know that dogs and cats will tire of their foods, and a variety of foodstuffs seems to encourage normal food consumption. The biggest issue is that a pet, unlike a person, cannot bebop over to the refrigerator and make another sandwich. So limiting the food is good when it comes to weight control.”
Ridgway hopes his book makes dealing with health issues in pets easier for people, but there are other advantages to knowing home remedies. He says, “Veterinary costs are expensive, and if pet owners can do the treatments at home themselves, they can save money.”
