“The book is very easy to read, and is full of great information. It includes everything I wish I could tell a new pet owner during their first appointment, if only I had the time to spend the whole day with them!”
“Great book for first time and long time dog owners. I've raised guide dogs for over 20 years and many pet dogs over my 52 years and I still learned from this book. Great info for the money.”
"I've had dogs my whole life, but it's been a long time since I raised a puppy. The book is very easy and fun to read, making it a great way for kids to learn how to help keep puppy safe also. I love the real life examples of what can go wrong in an everyday situation to learn how to avoid heartbreak and hassles.”
“As an emergency and critical care specialist, I have found myself saying these things to many surprised clients, time and time again! Had they known this simple wisdom, they would have not put their pet at risk and likely would have saved them money, too! This book is a must for the new pet owner!"
“Great little book for new (and experienced) dog owners. Definitely a book that should be in every dog owner's library. I've had dogs all my life, but I'm a sucker for quick "bathroom" reads like this. For $10, I thought "why not?" What a great little reference book! I knew some of the info already (again, experienced dog owner), but I picked up several new tips that might save me (and my little guy) a trip or two to the vet.”

As an ER and general practice veterinarian, Dr. Jason Nicholas (“Dr. J”) has been witness to countless heartbreaking cases where loving, responsible pet owners arrive distraught and (often) guilt-ridden, at all hours of the day and night, with pets suffering in distress and in pain. In a majority of these cases he knew that they could have easily been prevented—had the owner only known a “simple” bit of information or had recognized the warning signs earlier. Repeated exposure to these preventable situations, helped to transform Dr. J into “The Preventive Vet.” Since 2011, he has become a leading pet health and safety expert, who regularly appears on radio, television, and in social media dispensing valuable advice, awareness, and pet tips. Although a fun-loving person with a casual style and sense of humor, he’s a stickler for accurate, thorough and compelling information. As a husband, father, pet owner, and practicing veterinarian, he also knows that life can get hectic quickly… especially with a new dog. He recognized the need and so the indispensible, fun and easy-to-read, life-saving 101 Essential Tips was born. Dr. Nicholas makes Portland, Oregon, his home, where he lives with his wife and their two young daughters. Their family is kept smiling and laughing with the help of their superdog, Wendy, and ever-cool cat, Smudge.
