Author(s): Marty Becker
Dr. Marty Becker has become known as 'America's Veterinarian because of his educational and entertaining shows and columns. Dr. Becker helps owners solve problems and deepen their bond with their dogs through a tip-filled book on everything from finding the right dog to preventing dog health problems and keeping your dog in top shape. He will start owners off on the right foot, whether they buy a purebred puppy or adopt an older mixed breed. Plus, he will show them how to solve the most annoying behavioral problems and dog-care issues - from shedding to barking at thunderstorms. (Surprising fact: did you know that short-hair dogs shed more than long-haired dogs?) He advises owners how to find the right vet, save money on medication and treatments, both traditional and alternative and offers suggestions about the pet products that really work.
The Vet expert from Good Morning America and The Dr. Oz Show offers every dog owner the insider secrets to raising a healthy, well-behaved dog.
"As dean of a veterinary college, and over 35 years as a veterinarian, I can attest to the excellent educational value and practical guidance provided in Dr. Becker's recent book: "YOUR DOG: THE OWNER'S MANUAL." Successfully selecting, training, exercising, and owning a dog that fits your lifestyle, should not be taken lightly, nor should they be random events. It requires a well thought-out process and this book will guide you through the myriad of possibilities."
-Neil Olson, Dean, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Missouri
