As I watch my furry kiddos, my nickname for them, I wonder if I am doing everything possible to keep them healthy and give them the best pet care. It’s not like they can tell me that they don’t feel well or that they feel great. Calling the vet isn’t an option either unless I know one of my pets is sick. As a way of being more educated about pet care, I found this book, The Feel Better Book for Cats & Dogs – Nursing Care for All Life Stages, by Randi E. Golub.
For over 35 years, Golub has been a certified veterinary technician in Eugene, Ore. She specializes in elderly pets, those that are terminally ill, and those with diabetes. She has worked in zoos, humane societies, veterinarian offices, and veterinarian emergency clinics. She runs an in home nursing service for cats and dogs called the CatNurse on Call. In addition to this book, Golub has also published a book called Sugarbabies – A Holistic Guide to Caring for Your Diabetic Pet.
The Feel Better Book for Cats & Dogs – Nursing Care for All Life Stages is a guide for all those people who work with animals – pet owners, veterinarians, pet sitters, people who board animals, vet techs, and pet shelter workers. The book covers everything about pet care – from feeding to grooming to medicating. It teaches you about first aid for pregnant animals, puppies, and kittens. One chapter is dedicated to the pet care of senior animals and knowing when it’s time to let go.
Looking over Golub’s website, this book inspires me to learn more about my own furry kiddos. I do take good care of them, but like I said, I wonder if I’m doing enough. If you are interested in learning more as I am, visit the website.
