This new edition includes much new and updated material and features a lay-flat soft cover binding. There are new sections on stapling and gluing wounds, releasing dogs caught in traps, examining your dog, and updated material throughout. Other problems in the field, such as snakebites, poisoning, choking, gunshot wounds, cuts, eye and ear problems, broken bones, and more are covered in detail. Nothing can make you feel more helpless than being far from a veterinarian with a seriously injured dog. This is an essential book for any dog owner and especially for anyone venturing afield with a dog.
