Explanation of the Book:

"It might be the most important book about being a parent that you will ever read." —Emily Rapp Black, New York Times bestselling author of The Still Point of the Turning World "Brooks's own personal experience provides the narrative thrust for the book — she writes unflinchingly about her own experience.... Readers who want to know what happened to Brooks will keep reading to learn how the case against her proceeds, but it's Brooks's questions about why mothers are so judgmental and competitive that give the book its heft." —NPR One morning, Kim Brooks made a split-second decision to leave her four-year old son in the car while she ran into a store. What happened would consume the next several years of her life and spur her to investigate the broader role America’s culture of fear plays in parenthood. In Small Animals, Brooks asks, Of all the emotions inherent in parenting, is there any more universal or profound than fear? Why have our notions of what it means to be a good parent changed so radically? In what ways do these changes impact the lives of parents, children, and the structure of society at large? And what, in the end, does the rise of fearful parenting tell us about ourselves? Fueled by urgency and the emotional intensity of Brooks’s own story, Small Animals is a riveting examination of the ways our culture of competitive, anxious, and judgmental parenting has profoundly altered the experiences of parents and children. In her signature style—by turns funny, penetrating, and always illuminating—which has dazzled millions of fans and been called "striking" by New York Times Book Review and "beautiful" by the National Book Critics Circle, Brooks offers a provocative, compelling portrait of parenthood in America and calls us to examine what we most value in our relationships with our children and one another.

Explanation of the Book:

One morning, Kim Brooks made a split-second decision to leave her four-year-old son in the car while she ran into a store. What happened would consume the next several years of her life and spur her to investigate the broader role our current culture of fear plays in parenthood. In Small Animals, Brooks asks, of all the emotions inherent in parenting, is there any more universal or profound than fear? Why have our notions of what it means to be a good parent changed so radically? In what ways do these changes impact the lives of parents, children, and the structure of society at large? And what, in the end, does the rise of fearful parenting tell us about ourselves? Fuelled by urgency and the emotional intensity of Brooks’s own story, Small Animals is a riveting examination of the ways our culture of competitive, anxious, and judgmental parenting has profoundly altered the experiences of parents and children. In her signature style – by turns funny, penetrating, and always illuminating – which has dazzled millions of fans and been called ‘striking’ by New York Times Book Review and ‘beautiful’ by the National Book Critics Circle, Brooks offers a provocative, compelling portrait of parenthood and calls us to examine what we most value in our relationships with our children and one another.

Explanation of the Book:

Owning a small mammal as a pet can come with its own set of benefits but it can also come with its own set of difficulties and headaches. Some small mammals can have some very bad habits. It will be the responsibility of you, the owner, to curve these habits and find ways to redirect them. Some of these habits may include not using a litter box or chewing on wiring around the house. It is important to train any pet so that it understands what is expected of it from its new family. However, it is especially important to train smaller mammals, even more so if you plan on letting them out of their cages from time to time. Smaller mammals can be trained, despite many people’s believes. A lot of people feel as if smaller mammals are too small to be intelligent and therefore they believe they cannot be trained. This is nonsense and do not be one of the people who believe this. Smaller mammals may be small but they are still living mammals so therefore they may be trained. It will take time and effort but it is possible. There are different ways that you can train your small mammals and different animals may need different training approaches than others. It is important that you understand that the first method you try may not work. Do not give up hope and keep trying until you find something that works. Your hard work will surely pay in no time at all. Let Us Know What You Think!

Chronic Pain in Small Animal Medicine

Pages: 256
ISBN: 9781840765670
Available:
Release: 2009-12-15
Editor: CRC Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Chronic pain is unlike acute pain, it lasts beyond the time necessary for healing and resists normal treatment. No one patient feels pain in the same way and yet in veterinary medicine the patient's gain is generally assessed based on a single standard. There is an increasing focus in veterinary medicine on measuring and resolving pain and suffering. This focus is being supported by an increased understanding of pain neurophysiology, a greater offering of innovative pharmacological treatments, and consumer demand. This book is written for the veterinary health care professional seeking a greater depth of knowledge in the mechanisms of pain accompanying chronic disease states, and the potential targets for treatment. It goes beyond common protocols by focusing on the latest evidence and our understanding of 'why and how to treat'. It describes and evaluates current physiological and biochemical theories of pain transmission, without losing sight of the practical need for such information. Chronic Pain in Small Animal Medicine provides a foundation for advances in animal care and welfare and is of value to veterinarians in practice and training.
