Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review I recommend this book very highly for a first time pet owner, for anyone adopting a new pet, or for a pet owner who wants to learn more about day to day behavior training and first aid. It would also be a thoughtful gift for anyone who loves cats or dogs! -View from the Birdhouse If you have a companion animal in your life or, even if you are considering bringing one into your life this would be a great resource for you to have. -Ms. Nose in a Book This book is a wonderful reference to have on hand when you have a concern...My favorite aspects of the book are the tips about when to take your pet to the vet...I'm grateful to have some advice on where to draw the line. -Jennifer - Tar Heel Reader If you read this book from cover to cover, you're going to learn everything you need to know about becoming a responsible pet owner...Best of all, Weitzman infuses each page with warmth and wit as he addresses our most pressing (and perplexing) questions. It's kind of like having a house call from the family vet...Think of it as What to Expect When You're Expecting for the pet parent set. There are so many things that we should ask, but don't, and Weitzman does a stellar job of addressing those questions before they become a serious issue. -Jathan and Heather The guide, like anything you'd expect National Geographic to put out, is beautifully illustrated. Learn how to keep pets safe, what kind of vet care they need, and how to make sure your furry family member is living his or her best life. -Wining Wife It is brilliant and I think it deserves a place on the bookshelf of every pet owner. -Diary of a Stay at Home Mom This is a great book for us with fur babies! -Instagram: @shereadswithcats
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
