A Real Life Saver by G. Coleman ( CA US)
I had heard about this book from a few people, but when my dog was diagnosed with Cushing's and my vet said to buy this, I sure did. It's a fantastic reference for so many diseases, and it's really perfect if you've read Monica's K9Kitchen book first. You would have the real full story about nutrition with all the details that we need to know, especially when a dog gets sick. Every dog will which is why this book is a life saver. And it goes without saying that when both conventional and holistic vets applaud this book it's one you can trust. The e-book is an easy download with no problems.Sep 4, 2011
