"Decoding Your Dog" Book Is Now Available
Dr. John is co-editor of a new book, Decoding Your Dog. More than ninety percent of dog owners consider their pets to be members of their family. But often, despite our best intentions, we are letting our dogs down by not giving them the guidance and direction they need. Unwanted behavior is the number-one reason dogs are relinquished to shelters and rescue groups.
In Decoding Your Dog, these experts analyze problem behaviors, decipher the latest studies, and correct common misconceptions and outmoded theories. The book includes:
• Effective, veterinary-approved positive training methods
• Expert advice on socialization, house training, diet, and exercise. Remedies for behavior problems such as Separation Anxiety, Thunderstorm Phobia and Aggression
The book is available at area book stores or online at Amazon.com
Canine Influenza Virus
If you have a dog, you should have heard about the new influenza ("flu") virus by now that has affected dogs in the Chicago area. A few key points to remember: This is NOT contagious to humans. The Virus IS VERY contagious to other dogs in the air they breathe (spread by cough or sneeze or saliva). ONE strain may be contagious to cats. If the animal is old or immunocompromised, the virus could be fatal. Vaccine is available for at risk dogs (frequent dog parks, kennels, groomers, boarding facilities, shows). Vaccine is NOT necessary for all dogs and is not available for cats. Please call the clinic for other information.
