The New Pet Parent Book
As COVID Sparks Boom in Puppy Ownership, Vet Urges Public to Avoid Backyard Breeding Scams
Anyone who owns a dog will say it’s true; they become just as important as any other family member. In fact, the family dog is often the maker of the happiest memories. It’s something millions are now discovering in the wake of COVID-19, as lockdown inspired them to get a puppy.
But Veterinary Surgeon, Dermatologist and author Dr. Cristina Diaz-Madronero urges people to do their research beforehand. Not only to ensure the puppy is purchased from an ethical source, but that prospective owners are aware of the immense and challenging responsibilities of being “dog parents”.
Her new book, ‘The New Pet Parent Book’, is a great resource for those who already have their new pup, as well as those considering this most rewarding and life-changing decision. It’s vital reading to raise a dog that is fully-integrated into the family, properly cared for and in exemplary physical/mental health.
The New Pet Parent Book is an educational guide designed to provide new pet parents with the knowledge necessary to give your pet companion their best care. Compiling the most common questions new pet parents have when they welcome a dog to their family for the first time, this book will tell you everything you need to know and leave you confident that you're doing the right thing. Written by an experienced veterinarian and fellow pet owner, The New Pet Parent Book provides the reader with friendly, honest, accurate; and non-biased advice, just as if you are talking to your veterinarian as a family friend.
“Sadly, we are seeing many puppies come from backyard breeders or puppy mills to keep up with the current demand created during lockdown ,” explains the author. “Too many owners are also scammed. My book will help people learn how to research if their puppy comes from a responsible breeder and, ideally, consider a rescue centre (as one of their choices). It will also equip readers with the knowledge they need to raise healthy dogs that create wonderful memories for their family. If you’re considering getting a puppy, I urge you to read my book.”
Continuing, “Time invested in research is something any vet, likely myself, will strongly advocate. A large part of my book is devoted to helping people make the decision on if dog ownership is for them. If it is, I’ll make sure your family has a story to tell with a happy ending!”
Reviews have been extremely positive. Mandy Albone writes, “This book is amazing so informative whether you’re new to being a dog owner or an experienced one. Full of sensible, clear advice, it’s even got a small section on covid-19 with your dog. Happy to have this book on my book shelf.”
