The symptoms of the various complaints are described in detail, so there should be little difficulty in diagnosing ailments with Ashmont's "Kennel Diseases" at hand, while full treatment is explained by the talented author.- The Dog, Philadelphia.

The work is entirely devoid of technical terms, and is written in such entertaining style that any one with a love of dogs would find it not only valuable and helpful, but interesting as well. - Sports of the Times, New York.

It is a grand book, for the novice especially, and one which the most expert fanciers should possess. "Ashmont " is at his best when treating of this subject. - Alan's Best Friend, New York.

The great beauty of all of "Ashmont's " books, from the ordinary dog owner's point of view, has always been that the reader was not compelled to pass an examination in Latin and medical or surgical phraseology to know what is said and what to do. - Field & Stream, New York.

"Ashmont" is an eminent American authority and as he is so thoroughly well up in his subject, and treats it fully in language that can be easily comprehended by the least scientific among us, his treatise is a welcome one. - Stock-Keeper ana Farmer's Chronicle, London.

Great care has been exercised in handling the ailments to give the reader the clearest information possible and which is at the same time simple, and in the matter of doses the seeker after knowledge can scarcely go wrong. We do not doubt that in a short while this book will be found upon every kennel shelf. - Field & Fancy, New York.

This elegantly gotten-up volume is intended to popularize medicine for the guidance of non-professional dog owners. - American Agriculturist, New York.

Every one who owns a dog should possess this invaluable book, which has been long in preparation and is undoubtedly far ahead of any other work yet attempted upon the subject. - Field & Farm, Denver.
