We were up with a sick dog most of the night, and were very glad to have our vet book. I consider it an important piece of survival gear. It's called: Dog Owners Home Veterinary Handbook By Delbert G Carlson D.V.M and James M Griffin M.D. It is incredibly comprehensive, from pediatrics to geriatrics. Has a find it fast symptoms index inside the front cover, and, most helpful to us last night, a dosage chart for people medications by weight. Mine was printed in 1992 and the book is out of print last time I checked, about a year ago. I got mine at Powells in Portland and I think it's worth searching the net or used book stores for a copy. BTW Lilly is much better this morning! Gave us quite a scare last night!
