Meet Lorrie, the Barefoot Veterinarian, who plied her trade in the wilds of Southern California fro over 30 years, caring for a wide range of species, including dogs, cats, monkeys, goats, seals, wallabies, ferrets, ... the list goes on and on. Not your typical small animal urban veterinarian! This book is a collection of the many memorable experiences in Lorrie Boldrick's life as a veterinarian, beginning in veterinary schoool and ending with her first retirement.
Some of the stories will make you smile, many will make you laugh, others will make you sad, and a few may even make you cry. Hopefully, they'll all make it clear what an extraordinarily rewarding and often entertaining career she had caring for animals - and often their owners.
"What should I do if my dog is stung by a bee?"
"I know chocolate is bad for dogs, but my St. Bernard just ate a 12 oz bag of chocolate chips. Do I need to rush to the vet?"
Find answers to these questions and many more in Essential First Aid for Dog Owners, a practical guide to common pet emergencies and basic first aid for your dog. This concise book will help you make educated decisions on how to handle emergency situations. It's easy to use and just the right size to keep with your dog first aid kit (which the book helps you create).
The Know Your Dog section is essential first reading. It provides common-sense wisdom that will allow you to keep many situations in the category of "avoided emergencies" instead of life-threatening crises. When a genuine problem does arise, Dr. Boldrick's pawprints tell you at a glance when - and how quickly - you need to see your veterinarian. All this and much more is packed into this little gem. Essential First Aid for Dog Owners also illustrates ways to keep injured dogs - and their humans - safe using proper restraint and handling techniques. A section on handy tips for giving medications rounds out the book. The companion website for this book can be found at www.essentialfirstaidfordogowners.com.
