The Henston Guide to the Management of Coughing In Dogs - Peter DarkeHenston, Undated , Paperback.
Condition: Near Fine.
From the cover: “Respiratory disease in the dog has, it would appear, received little attention in recent years when compared to diseases of other body systems. The disciplines of cardiology, dermatology and orthopaedics, it can be claimed, have many followers within the veterinary profession but few would profess to have a particular interest in respiratory medicine. As the science of veterinary medicine progresses, so do veterinary surgeons in general practice, veterinary nurses and clients want to know more about specific diseases they come across, no less the coughing dog. The care of a dog with chronic respiratory disease needs patience and understanding from all concerned and as with the treatment of other, more complicated diseases, few veterinary clinics cater for the time required to pass on the understanding required by all involved. As a follow on from our other Henston Guides, this small book is intended to provide a greater understanding of the processes of respiratory disease in the dog for those involved in its care. Armed with this understanding, it is hoped that they can manage the condition better and so improve the quality of life of the respiratory patient.”
