BookEnds: Describe your book in 50 words or less.
Deb:A guide to medications and care for pet owners from cats to dogs to house bunnies, birds and reptiles.

BookEnds: What do you think distinguishes your work from other similar books?
Deb: It is easy to read, full of advice that the average pet owner can understand and follow.

BookEnds: What is your favorite thing about this book?
Deb: Before it was published, a friend's husband was left caring for her dogs while she was out of town. One came down with hives, so he called our house to find out if he could give an antihistamine. I was away, but my husband searched the files, found the info, and was able to help!

BookEnds: If readers only take away one thing from your book, what would you like it to be?
Deb: The most important thing is that you must customize your health care for each pet as an individual.

BookEnds: How have people responded to your book?
Deb: I receive e-mails from people who tell me how my book helped them in caring for their pet or in their work at shelters.

BookEnds: What’s your next book? When and where should we look for it?
Deb: Cancer and Your Pet is out now through Capitol, and Head of the Class is just out from Howell Books.
