    Speaking for Spot was a labor of love for Dr. Nancy Kay, fueled by her passion to teach people how to be effective medical advocates for their four-legged best friends. Gone are the days of simply following doc’s orders-today’s dog lovers are confronted with health-care decision-making on many levels. Perhaps you’ve wondered:

    •  
    • How do I find a vet that feels just right for me and my dog?
    • How will I be able to afford my dog’s health care? Is pet insurance the way to go?
    • Does my dog truly need all those vaccines listed on the reminder postcard?
    • What are the important questions I should be asking my vet?
    • Does my dog really need the surgery or procedure that has been recommended?
    • Are there other options I should be considering?
    • When is it appropriate to get a second opinion? Where should I go to get one and how can I avoid offending my vet?
    • Should I take my dog to see a specialist?
    • Should I consider treating my dog’s cancer?
    • Am I doing the right thing? Am I doing this for him or for me?
    • Is my dog ready to say goodbye? Am I ready to let him go? What are my choices when it comes to the euthanasia process?

    If you’ve struggled with these questions, you’ve come to just the right place! Dr. Kay and Speaking for Spot will help you answer all of these questions and many more. With warmth, candor, and humor cultivated over 20-plus years of working with dogs and their human companions Dr. Kay provides an insider’s guide to navigating the potentially overwhelming, confusing, and expensive world of veterinary medicine. The result is everything you need to know in one fabulous, fully illustrated book. Speaking for Spot is the consummate guide on how to be your best friend’s medical advocate.
