As a holistic veterinarian, I wish all my clients would read this book! Writing from her earnest, unique, canine point of view, Chiclet-a peppery 4-lb. Maltese-imparts crucial information in a fun, easy-to-read style. She and her human companion, Jan Rasmusen, have done an incredible job researching and distilling information that every dog guardian should know.
Chiclet (and Jan) decided to get writing after Chiclet's true love, Jiggy, developed severe immune-mediated liver disease. His long journey back to health (mainly through a homemade diet) triggered the extensive research that resulted in this book. Their website provides dozens of links and complete support for the book.
This book aims to explode every common myth and cover virtually every aspect of canine care; all in an entertaining and painless fashion. The importance of regular check-ups, spaying and neutering, dental care, home and travel safety, and pest control are emphasized. Behavior, housing,...
Scared Poopless: The Straight Scoop on Dog Care by Chiclet T. Dog and Jan Rasmusen is a cleverly written manual/guide to rethinking canine health and safety. Written in Chiclet's own voice, he tells how all the things we do to our beloved pets feel from the dog's perspective. The wording is enjoyable to read and packed with valuable information on every aspect of dog care from buying or adopting your new pet to bathing, vacinating, training and many more aspects. Even if you have belonged to a dear dog for many years you will learn a lot from this terrific book. Of course, you can spend as much money on your pet nowadays as on a human because pet surgery and hospitals have become so advanced and sophistocated, so maybe you can email Chiclet about pet health insurance here too (even though millions of American people don't have any!). In Chiclet's Trivia Treat he does comment on doggy face lift surgery for winning pet shows! The book is well indexed and the chapters have subject...
I just got a puppy, and even though I bought what I thought was the best puppy food on the market, he developed some digestive problems. They got so bad he was dehydrating. Then someone turned me on to Jan Rasmusen's book, SCARED POOPLESS, and I read what she said about feeding our dogs. After reading up on all of the "human" foods we can give our dogs, I began by changing Bailey's food and introducing a bit of the approved human foods she mentioned. Within just a few hours, Bailey's problems had begun to subside, and having changed his diet for the last few days, getting him off of the dog food, has had amazingly wonderful results.
Just to be sure, I still took my puppy to the vet. The vet absolutely agreed with the dietary changes I had made for the pup, and thankfully, Bailey is now doing fine. Scared Poopless has become our reference guide for the care and feeding of our new family member. It's a must-have reference, especially for NEW dog owners. Don't know what...
