From the publisher: We love bringing our dogs along on outdoor adventures, whether backpacking , hiking or hunting, and they love coming just as much. But just like humans, our canine partners can suffer an illnesses or accident in the backcountry, a long way from home. If your dog should seem sick, do you know how to check? What would you do if they suddenly collapsed? These and many other obvious and not so obvious health issues are described in Canine Field Medicine.

Veterinarian Sid Gustafson provides tips on how to examine your dog, and what to do if they're choking, coughing, wounded, bleeding, goes lame or has a head injury. He discusses eye, ear and mouth health and the first aid that's required for things like frostbite, heat stroke, hypothermia and sunburn.

The point of every outdoor adventure is to have fun and come back safely. Being prepared for the worst is generally the best way to stack the odds of a successful outing in our favor—for humans and for our four-legged friends.
