This book is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice of veterinarians. Readers should regularly consult a veterinarian in matters relating to their dog’s health, and particularly with respect to any symptoms that may require medical attention. In writing this book, we have described the signs and symptoms that will lead you to a preliminary idea of what is happening with your dog, so you can weigh the severity of the problem. Knowing when to call your veterinarian is very important. Delays can be dangerous. At the same time, we have sought to provide guidance for the acute or emergency situations that you must handle on your own until you can get your dog to a veterinarian. Life-saving procedures such as artificial respiration and heart massage, and what to do in the event of poisonings, obstetrical problems, and other emergencies are explained step by step. But a veterinary handbook is not a substitute for professional care. Advice from a book can never be as helpful or as safe as actual medical advice. No text can replace the interview and the hands-on examination that enables a veterinarian to make a speedy and accurate diagnosis. However, the knowledge provided in this book will enable you to more effectively cooperate and better understand your interactions with your veterinarian. You’ll be more alert to the signs of health problems and better able to describe them. You’ll know more about basic care for your dog, and you’ll be prepared in an emergency.

The Well Adjusted Dog

Canine Chiropractic Methods You Can Do

Chiropractors and their human patients already know the health benefits of relieving spinal nerve pressure. Dog owners and trainers who are fortunate enough to find a trained animal chiropractor also know of these benefits. But that's the problem--finding a practitioner in your area. Very few veterinarians offer chiropractic services since they are too busy with medical emergencies. And most of the licensed human chiropractors, who became certified in animal chiropractic, are prohibited or severely limited by law to adjust animals in their state. "The Well Adjusted Dog: Canine Chiropractic Methods You Can Do" will give dog owners insight on how a lot of the adjustments are performed and what to expect when they take their dog to an animal chiropractor--if they can find one. For those who want to adjust their own dogs, the author provides step-by-step instructions with over 90 illustrations. However, Dr. Kamen strongly advises first consulting with a licensed veterinarian for a proper evaluation and to rule out any possible contraindications to adjusting. About the Author Dr. Daniel Kamen was born in Chicago, Illinois and has been practicing chiropractic since 1981. His father is a highly respected anesthesiologist; his mother, a gifted artist. Dr. Kamen's original animal chiropractic organization, "Animal Crackers," produced animal chiropractic educational materials, which taught others how to adjust dogs and horses. Dr. Kamen lives with his wife, Sharon, of thirty-four years. Together they have three sons, Jeffrey, Gary and Kevin. He makes his home in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. Dr. Kamen has been featured in many TV, radio, and newspaper stories concerning his work with animal chiropractic. He currently is on tour, teaching a professional as well as a lay lecture seminar on animal chiropractic (horse and dog adjusting). His hobbies include playing the piano and chess (master level). Books by Daniel Kamen include: "The Well Adjusted Dog, The Well Adjusted Horse, The Well Adjusted Cat" and a novel entitled "Stagecoach Road: The Bullies Must Die."

What reviewers are saying...

MY PET WORLD
“There aren't many books out there with 1,000 photos of dogs (and also wolves) expressing themselves. You'll see signs of mild stress, which range from a paw lift to lip licking to blinking. A yawn may simply mean a dog is tired, or indicate stress. Stretching can also be a sign of stress. Dogs are constantly communicating non-verbally. This book is a must for anyone truly interested in translating what canines are saying.” Steve Dale

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

Featuring one thousand photos covering everything from common dogs to wolves, foxes, and coyotes, "Canine Behavior" is complete and comprehensive in its coverage of canine species. Alongside the black and white photography are examinations of canine behavior with tips for dog owners peppered throughout. "Canine Behavior: A Photo Illustrated Handbook" is a must have for any dog person and for community library pets/wildlife collections.” James A. Cox
