Hi everyone,

What, if any books do you guys recommend for K9 health and wellness?

So a little about myself I spent 8 years as an army medic, during that time we received a crash course in K9 tactical medicine. Now this week I found out Dex has a skin infection. Not a big deal vet got him some meds and Dex doesn’t mind at all. So it got me thinking Id have known what the infection was if it had been on a person and now Im wanting to get some books to study K9 health as a form of guidance.

Thank You

I have never used any. My life is in horses and dogs anyway. But I usually use people stuff unless it is something that needed to have a vet look at. Then I will use what they recommend, Unless I have a chemical free version. Skin infections can be a few things , food allergies, allergies to something in the house, or dry skin. Is it a patch? all over? when did it start?
