This classic reference is fully updated and revised to reflect these advances and gives you the most up-to-date guidance on cat health and cat care.

Whether you have a kitten or a senior cat, this resource helps you quickly identify potential problems, take proper steps in emergency situations, better understand diagnoses and treatment options, and communicate more effectively with your veterinarian.
