HELP WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS
Recently, I completed my third Akita book which is now available for
sale. Based on two years of research, it covers every health issue
affecting Akitas. I know the book will answer all of your questions
on the basics of finding a reputable breeder, plus buying and
raising an Akita puppy. It contains thorough discussions on
feeding (food types and brands, nutrition, important supplements);
temperament, training, socialization, showing and fun things to do
with your Akita..
It includes in-depth coverage of general health, vaccines,
to prevent and treat general health problems. There is also a
chapter for the aging Akita. The diseases chapter is filled with the
information on breed specific diseases and drug reactions.
Environmental issues that affect the health of your Akita are
covered in detail--actually the Biocides and Health Appendix should
be required reading for everyone who owns dogs. Within the 500 plus
pages, you will find lists of resources covering everything
discussed within the book, and recommendations for veterinarians
throughout the country. I am certain your questions will be
answered in great detail.
