I was asked to read the eBook Is Your Pet Secretly Living in a World of Pain? written by Dr. Debora Lichtenberg, VMD. While reading this book, I found myself nodding in agreement with Dr. Deb, laughing, and learning new things. Now, I am wondering if Dr. Deb needs a technician to come and work for her! She sounds exactly like the kind of veterinarians I loved working with and I wouldn't mind her seeing my own pets as well. We have mostly the same views on the topics discussed in Is Your Pet Secretly Living in a World of Pain?.
The eBook touches on topics such as vaccination protocol for dogs and cats, cooking for your pet, fleas, spay surgery procedures, tips on choosing a good veterinarian that you trust, dental care, and more. Dr. Deb doesn't beat around the bush in this book and tells the reader like it is. There is some humor included as well which makes it even more enjoyable to read.
For those pet owners who like to take a more natural approach to pet care, there are some good tips in this book as well. Especially when it comes to flea prevention.
One of my favorite chapters in Is Your Pet Secretly Living in a World of Pain is the one about spay surgeries. It's titled "The Truth About Spay Surgeries" and it tells pet owners that spays are actually more complicated than many vets make them out to be. Which is true, but don't let it deter you from actually spaying your dog or cat. Dr. Deb explains the procedure in an easy to understand way for non-veterinarians.
Why do I like this chapter so much? Because it really hits home for me. My own dog had some real complications during her own spay. She was bleeding below one of her sutures on her pedicle and was bleeding out. We re-opened her the same day and found the issue. This was the only time I've ever seen it happen, but things do and can happen. I still believe dogs and cats need to be spayed regardless.
|Shiner was spayed later in life, which can make a spay procedure more difficult than normal.|
And I really learned a lot about home-cooked diets. One of the reasons I don't feed my own dog a home-cooked diet is because I just don't feel like I would be able to give her one that met all of her nutritional requirements. The information Dr. Deb shares in this book regarding home-cooked diets was informative and interesting to read. I think any pet owner who is considering cooking for their pet full time should read it.
