                          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, parasites; information
to prevent and treat general health problems. There is also a comprehensive
chapter for the aging Akita. The diseases chapter is filled with the latest
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.
