A gold mine of information packed with charts, infographics, and ridiculously cute art, For Dog's Sake is the dog owner's handbook that all dog lovers want and need.

Review quote

Every day we read about dogs who've gotten sick, mishandled, and lost . . . or even die. Those of us who love our dogs like children yearn for the best information to keep our pups safe. This book is it! Read it and don't weep because your little baby will be safe, healthy, and tail-wagging happy. (Jane Velez-Mitchell, bestselling author, editor JaneUnChained.com) LOVE love love this book! All of my neurotic questions and concerns are addressed in super-simple and fabulously entertaining pictures. This book is a dog's best friend! (Kathy Freston, New York Times bestselling author of Veganist and The Lean) Who knew?! From Gorilla Glue to medicines to mushrooms, this amusing book is packed full of everyday and often surprising perils that could cost your dog dearly (as well as cost you dearly at the vet's office). Easy to read, vital information for anyone who wishes their dog to live a long and healthy life. This book should be dog-eared even before the adoption papers are signed. Buy one for yourself and for every dog guardian you know. (Ingrid Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, author of You Can Save The Animals and other books) I consider myself pretty well-versed in the language of Dog, but reading For Dog's Sake! opened my eyes to SO MANY amazing ideas, tips, suggestions, and guidelines for keeping my little Zelda safe and healthy. (Lauren Miller Rogen, writer, actor, dog lover, cofounder of hilarityforcharity.org) I've always wanted a diagram to evaluate Zelda's poo, and now I've got it. And although I hope we'll never use it, I now feel very well-versed in the doggy Heimlich maneuver. This book rules. (Seth Rogen)
