Great book for dog and cat owners!
I bought a book several years ago that has been a great reference book. The book is "The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Dogs and Cats" by the Editors of Prevention Magazine. It has hundreds of answers to pet problems from vets, trainers, breeders and other animal experts. You can look up a problem and it will tell you what you can do at home, or will tell you to take the pet to the vet if home remedies won't do the trick. It tells you what they would do, and most of the remedies are simple things you have around the house, saving you the time and cost of a vet call if it's not really necessary. It also has a lot of first aid information and dog training help. Great book for those late night or weekend problems and really worth having if you have cats or dogs!
