Is Your Pet Secretly Living in a World of Pain? | Free eBook from Pets Adviser

Ever wish you could look inside the brains of veterinarians and see what they are really thinking? As a technician, I worked with several veterinarians. It was my job to learn each of them like the back of my hand so that I could assist them as well as I could. Some of them were excellent at their jobs and I absolutely adored assisting them while others were just "not my style".

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.

The Truth About Spay Sugeries
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.

  6. This sounds like a great book. I know that my dog who was neutered a year old acted upset for several days after we got him fixed. I opted to give him pain meds after his surgery because I wouldn't go home without pain medicine. He also was quite shy to wear his cone too, it made him paranoid. If only our animals could talk and tell us when they hurt or don't feel good.

    1. Neuters, the surgery for boy animals, are much easier than spay surgeries, for girl pets. Still, they could probably use some pain meds. Cones are good too, but most dogs don't take to them very well.

  7. Sounds like an informative read and we too are kind of not certain about home cooked meals because of the balancing of all the food groups that are needed so that is of interest here too.
    Have a serene Sunday and get in some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Sounds like an interesting read. My spay wasn't straightforward either, but it was just a blip and the benefit of spaying far outweighed what happened

  13. Thanks for sharing! As a pet parent, and an advocate of spay/neuter I am very interested in reading this. And I always feel for those pets that get spayed later in life…major surgery.

  14. Interesting. Mom helped her vet friend spay a few pets in Germany. It is a major surgery. I did not do so well with mine, but I was already four which may be part of it. I was a total drama queen for about a week, but then I was fine. Every surgery has its problems and risks.

    1. 4 year old dogs that have been through heats could be a little more complicated. Also, since you are a little bigger that may have been more difficult too. Shiner did well afterwards, but just had a problem with the surgery itself.
