39 Ways To Not Kill Your Best Friend:
Tales of Caution For Dog Lovers
By Dr. Judith Samson-French
A Must-Read For All Dog Lovers
A REALITY CHECK YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO MISS:
WHAT YOU LEARN HERE COULD SAVE YOUR DOG’S LIFE
Many of us can’t imagine our lives without our dog. We share pictures of them with our followers on Instagram, repost cute BuzzFeed links featuring them on our Facebook feeds, and spoil them with treats and toys – all in exchange for the incomparable love, warmth and companionship that only a canine can provide.
But how much do we really know about our four-legged friends? And is it possible that we’re often inadvertently compromising their health, safety…even life?
In 39 Ways To Not Kill Your Best Friend: Tales of Caution For Dog Lovers, internationally renowned veterinary surgeon, researcher and philanthropist Dr. Judith Samson-French exposes what happens when the good intentions of well-meaning owners go awry. With case files from Dr. Samson-French’s practice, 39 Ways To Not Kill Your Best Friend invites readers into a bustling veterinary hospital, where life-and-death are everyday realities that a little education in simple do’s and don’ts of responsible canine care would see avoided.
Tackling polarizing issues such as cancer treatment, adoption, greyhound racing, medical errors and choke collars head on, 39 Ways To Not Kill Your Best Friend is a compassionate but unflinching reality check that no dog owner can afford to miss.
A dog with no name will be fed for 3 days with the proceeds of sales of 39 Ways. Among the topics and themes explored in it are:
· How to play the role of the pack leader – not alpha dog – if you have multiple dogs to avoid BDLD (Big Dig Little Dog) deadly encounters
· Spills that can kill: which household liquids to keep away from your dog
· Gobble, Gobble: Why you should absolutely not allow your dog any fatty leftovers this or any other Thanksgiving
· The Irresistible Puppy: What to avoid when adopting
· And many, many more!
“Although identifying details have been altered to protect the anonymity of all involved, 39 Ways To Not Kill Your Best Friend is in no way a work of fiction,” states Dr. Samson-French. “The stories you will find on these pages, about more than 39 real-life canine companions, are all true. These events should not have happened, but they did, and our challenge now is to learn from them. By reading about these dogs, what went wrong for them and how it could have been prevented, I hope to empower you to protect your own pet from a similar fate.”
