Dr. Baker has written a great guide to caring for your dog, and it’s as important for longtime owners as it is for new dog parents. In simple, clear terms (none of the Latin many pet authors use to fluff up their text), Dr. Baker outlines the essentials of dog care in ten chapters: Best Nutrition; Keeping Your Dog at a Healthy Weight; Fun Exercise Options for Your Dog; Taking Care of Your Dog’s Teeth; Protecting Your Dog from Fleas & Ticks (including a tick identification guide); Protecting Your Dog from Heartworm Disease; Keeping Your Dog’s Ears Clean; The Right Vaccinations for Your Dog; Tips and Tricks for Giving Medications to Your Dog; and Important Information to Take to Your Dog’s Veterinarian Visit. Dr. Baker helpfully also includes links to her Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest accounts, as well as her personal website.

English major and former librarian, I'm a lifelong reader of just about anything in print. I read widely, but my favorite genres are cozy mysteries, post-apocalyptic novels, and any book featuring dogs, cats or any kind of animal. I'm not a fan of steamy romance or erotica, and I've developed a taste for independent writers since acquiring a Kobo e-reader and Kindle. I beta-read for several authors, but have no fiction-writing aspirations of my own; to quote author Tim Kreider, “I don’t know how to reconcile the necessities of plot with anything resembling real life. I just don’t understand life well enough to make things up.” View more posts
