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.Read More
