Well, it is the
book version of this website, so it is basically this website in printed
form as at 2012.
I was rather
surprised to see how big the book is! Almost 600 pages actually.
section is included because I cannot include personal experiences such as the Success Stories
or Other People's Losses for copyright reasons, but otherwise
virtually all of the site is in the book.
The book costs
US$32.99. I would have liked to charge less, but the fixed costs involved
in production (it is a big book!) and the additional work required to create the book format
mean this is a reasonable price from my perspective. I hope you will agree
it is still good value compared to the other costs associated with caring
for a CKD cat.
avoidance of doubt, the site will continue to be available, completely
free of charge. The book is just an optional extra for those who would
like most of the site in printed form. There is nothing in the book that
is not on the site.
How to Buy
There are two
main ways to buy the book:
Helen's Online Store
have my own online store, which you can visit
by clicking on the button below. My online store ships all over the world.
Just add the book to your basket and proceed to check out.
this is my online store, I do not see your details at all, all the
processing is done by a subsidiary of Amazon, so if you have any questions
about your order, please use the links on the online store.
The book is
also available on Amazon in a number of different countries.
Please click on the appropriate link below.
Some of you
will want to know that I receive far less of the purchase price if you buy
the book from Amazon than if you buy it from my own online store.
Therefore, if you would like me to benefit more from your purchase, please
use my online store. However, shopping with Amazon is probably cheaper for
most people (free shipping should be available, and Amazon may also
discount the price), and if you are able to use your local Amazon, you
should not be liable for import duties, which (depending upon where you
live) may apply if you use my online store.
TREATING YOUR CAT WITHOUT VETERINARY ADVICE CAN BE
tried very hard to ensure that the information provided in this website is
accurate, but I am NOT a vet, just an ordinary person who has lived
through CKD with three cats. This website is for educational purposes
only, and is not intended to be used to diagnose or treat any cat. Before
trying any of the treatments described herein, you MUST consult a
qualified veterinarian and obtain professional advice on the correct
regimen for your cat and his or her particular requirements; and you
should only use any treatments described here with the full knowledge and
approval of your vet. No responsibility can be accepted.
If your cat
appears to be in pain or distress, do not waste time on the internet,
contact your vet immediately.

change that. I would love it to display perfectly everywhere, but my focus
