    Amy D. Shojai is the author of 12 books about dogs and cats. She lectures around the United States on pet-related topics and is frequently interviewed on national radio and TV. She lives with her husband and pets in Sherman, Texas.
    Is there an animal doctor in the house?

    Most likely, the answer is no. And when an accident or other emergency threatens your pet, every minute counts. Don't be unprepared! Open The First-Aid Companion for Dogs and Cats and learn:

    * Basic first-aid techniques, such as cleaning a wound, making a splint, and performing CPR-- step-by-step!
    * Which over-the-counter human medications can help-- or harm-- your dog or cat
    * What to keep in your pet's medicine chest (many essential items are probably in your house already!)
    * How to quickly pinpoint what's wrong with your pet, using the First-Aid Symptom Finder

    Plus, you'll discover a comprehensive A-to-Z guide to more than 150 common-- and not-so-common-- injuries and conditions, including:

    * Abscesses (page 60)
    * Bites from Animals (page 90)
    * Car Accidents (page 117)
    * Choking (page 131)
    * Gunshot Wounds (page 224)
    * Heatstroke (page 237)
    * Hot Spots (page 245)
    * Jellyfish Stings (page 269)
    * Poisoning (page 311)
    * Snakebites (page 350)

    Each at-a-glance entry tells you when to call the vet, which supplies or medications you'll need, what immediate action you should take, and what you should do as follow-up care.

    By knowing what to do in an emergency and then acting quickly and confidently to take the proper steps, you could save your pet's life. The next time medical help is not quickly available, reach for The First-Aid Companion for Dogs and Cats. It's a pet owner's second best friend.

    • Great Book!

      I purchased this book for my mom. With her being a first time pet owner, she often had questions about really serious and really random things regarding her Black Lab. She really loves this book because it has so much useful information about what to do to help your pet in pretty much every situation, as well as when it is imperative to take your pet to the vet. She doesn't have to call the vet for every little thing now, she just looks in her first aid companion. I definitely would recommend it.
