Release Date: 2009-01-19
Genre: Juvenile Nonfiction

Teens live in an imperfect world where people judge each other on looks, popularity, bank accounts, or clothing styles-a world where people are not always treated fairly. But animals do not care about poor test scores or bad skin; they simply love unconditionally. Such devotion makes the human-animal bond so special. In Animals and Teens: The Ultimate Teen Guide, author Gail Green illustrates various situations in which young adults become involved with animals, including providing foster care, pursuing career opportunities, or simply raising pets at home. Green shows how animals can enhance teens' lives and how teens can improve the welfare of animals that face abuse or live in shelters and wildlife preserves. Green discusses what is involved in the handling of service animals, such as dogs that provide physical assistance or horses that help with therapy. Animals and Teens also covers such basics as caring for animals and dealing with the loss of a pet. The voices in this book come from a large cross section of teens and young adults whose stories will resonate with anyone who loves animals. From helping with animal rescue to overcoming learning disabilities, these heartwarming experiences demonstrate how each of us can make a difference through the incredibly rewarding human-animal bond.

Release Date: 2017-08-15
Genre: Medical

As a holistic veterinarian and scientist, Dr. Gary Richter helps dog and cat owners to navigate the thicket of treatment options and separate the fact from the fiction. He wants us to use what actually works, not just what Western science or alternative medicine say "should" work. This multifaceted approach to health is known as integrative medicine. Dr. Richter examines traditional medicine from many cultures alongside modern medical techniques, describing the best of complementary care and the best of conventional veterinary medicine. Every treatment he recommends has the backing of scientific research or years of successful outcomes in his clinical practice. After explaining the treatment, he offers specific recommendations for an integrative approach to common diseases, including allergies, skin conditions, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. A holistic approach to health includes nutrition, as it sets up the foundation for your pet’s health. Dr. Richter cuts through the hype in the pet-food world and explains how to choose the best commercial foods and supplements, and even includes both raw and cooked dog- and cat-food recipes for general diet as well as to treat specific needs. He also explains how we can use the right foods and supplements to "hack" the body’s processes, including the immune system.

The Ultimate Labrador Retriever

Author: Heather Wiles-Fone
Publisher: Howell Books
ISBN: 0876052049
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Labrador retriever

The Labrador Retriever is, in many ways, the dog with the ideal temperament. A special blend of intelligence, honesty, and kindness has made it unrivaled as the most popular dog in the world. Bred originally as a fisherman's dog, the gentry were swift to see the potential in this sturdy retriever, and the Labrador was adopted as a versatile gundog, retrieving game over land and in water. Today, the Labrador is still highly prized as a working gundog, but its intelligence and good nature have been put to many more uses. The Labrador is used worldwide as a guide dog for the blind, its excellent nose has made it a first-class arms and drug detection dog, and its gentle nature has made it an ideal therapy dog. Quick to learn and eager to please, the Labrador has also made its mark in the competitive sports of Field Trails, Working Trails, Agility, and Obedience. The breed's handsome looks ensure its success in the show ring, but perhaps most important, the Labrador excels as the perfect companion dog. In The Ultimate Labrador Retriever, Second Edition, Editor Heather Wiles-Fone has recruited a star-studded cast of specialists to write the definitive book on the breed. Experts from all over the world have pooled resources to give the most comprehensive coverage of the Labrador today. Starting with in-depth research into the origins and development of the breed, the experts go on to analyze the Breed Standard in detail. An acclaimed feature of The Ultimate Labrador Retriever is "The Judge's View," in which an American, British, and German judge make a pictorial critique of six different Labradors. The critical importance of training and socialization is emphasized throughout the book, as well as detailed information on feeding, genetics, health care, and inherited conditions. There is also a special feature on breeding and rearing Labrador Retrievers. The Ultimate Labrador Retriever, Second Edition, lavishly illustrated with more than 200 color photographs, is a "must-have" reference for the true Labrador enthusiast. Book jacket.
