Pets are an important part of the family. So when they get sick or hurt, we rely on the skill and compassion of veterinarians. This book features colorful pictures and easy-to-read text that allow young readers a glimpse at the demanding--but rewarding--world of animal doctors. Additional features include a table of contents, informational captions and sidebars, a phonetic glossary, sources for further research, an index, a Think-About-It section, and an introduction to the author.
