Descripción del producto

Award winning veterinarian and author Dr. Nancy Kay provides an insider's guide to navigating the often overwhelming, confusing, and expensive world of veterinary medicine. With warmth, candor, and humor cultivated over 25-plus years of working with canine patients and their human companions Dr. Kay explains how to initiate and nurture a healthy relationship with your veterinarian.

She provides expert advice and insider tips about:

- Finding a fabulous vet
- Choosing a vaccination protocol for your dog
- Pet health insurance
- When and how to get a second opinion
- How to deal with a cancer diagnosis and the tough choices that are bound to follow
- How to know when it's time to say goodbye

Plus, you'll find descriptions of hundreds of common diseases and related points you should be certain to clarify before leaving your vet's office with a treatment plan in hand. Additionally, SPEAKING FOR SPOT provides you with lists of important questions to ask your vet when contemplating a new medication, general anesthesia, a major procedure, spaying/neutering, or breeding for your dog.

Whether you are new to dogs or a seasoned veteran, and whether you share your home and heart with a healthy pup or an under-the-weather mature dog, Dr. Kay will provide you with a wealth of insights. Learn how to become a super- savvy medical advocate for your best friend. Visits to the vet will never be the same!

REVIEWS

"We don't offer a lot of books by other authors on our website, but we've just put up Dr. Nancy Kay's book, Speaking for Spot: Be the Advocate Your Dog Needs to Live a Happy, Healthy, Longer Life. There's just so much good about this book, and it is such an important resource for those of us who consider our dogs to be family. I love Nancy's thoughtful and compassionate voice, and couldn't agree more with her encouragement to all of us to be active advocates for our pets' veterinary care."
-Patricia McConnell, PhD, author of The Other End of the Leash and For the Love of a Dog


"Speaking for Spot is an engaging, compelling and truly indispensable book. Dr Nancy Kay enables her readers to become well-informed advocates for their pets' health care decisions. She has provided the perfect guide that will make a tremendous difference for dogs and for the people who love them."
-Claudia Kawczynska, Editor-in-Chief, BARK Magazine 

 
"If a dog owner could have only 1 book for health information, this is it. The author explains that owners are the best observers and advocates for their dogs. This is not a do-it-yourself medical text; rather, it explains how to find the right veterinarian and become a partner in the decision-making process. Veterinarians who schedule 10-minute office visits and do not enjoy answering questions might not like this book. The rest will welcome clients who are good observers; provide a succinct, relevant history and ask questions to understand what has been said. Somewhat humorous examples of histories are provided by hypothetical owners: Ms. Succinct, Ms. Talkative, and Mr. Wanderer. Chapters on billing, second opinions, cancer, and euthanasia will help owners know what to expect in these situations."
-Dr. Susan Cotter is a board certified specialist in internal medicine and oncology, and is on faculty at Tufts College of Veterinary Medicine.
