Why Your Pet Wants You to Read 'Trust Me: I'm Not a Veterinarian!': Jim Schwartz's New Book Is a Self-Defense Manual for Animal Guardians
Date:1/22/2009

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Your animal buddy can't read it. Your vet may not read it. But you can read it for your pet -- and that may save your pet's life.

That's the reason Jim Schwartz wrote the book:

  • to save one dog at a time;
  • to stop harmful over-vaccination of our pets;

  • to propose a legislative approach to saving companion animals;
  • to raise some ideas about pet care that you may be taking for granted;
  • and to respectfully suggest some ways you might tell if your pet is ready to check out of your world.

Author Jim Schwartz says, "Should you care what interest-conflicted vets think? Not if you care for your pet. The point is that if you have pets you should read this book on their account -- to improve their health and lengthen their lifespans."

Experience with vaccination and his dogs Buddy, Nicki, Moolah, Elle, Max, Ricki and Moses led Schwartz to question and examine the scie
