Speaking for Spot, a Bible for the Canine Advocate

Lea Jaratz

Speaking for Spot by Dr. Nancy Kay If you’re here at The Water Bowl, chances are good that you’re a pretty savvy pet parent, who knows the ins and outs of their pets’ care pretty well. That’s why we’re so pleased to share Speaking for Spot, Dr. Nancy Kay’s guidebook for the savvy dog lover. Kay’s text is laden with health care tips and insight into gaining the most from your relationship with your vet. Her advice comes from many years in her veterinary practice, but the tone and empathy come from a pet parent’s heart.

Kay not only addresses broad issues (like how to get the real facts regarding your pet’s diagnosis) but also hones in on specific concerns that will likely affect most of us, such as end of life decisions and financial preparedness. Along that spectrum, she helps readers analyze the way they approach their dog’s medical care, gauging everything from vaccination requirements to a veterinarian’s bedside manner.

Helping readers to “be the advocate your dog needs” is Kay’s mission here. Rather than putting our vets “on a pedestal,” she encourages pet parents to get second opinions, ask questions about medications, and plan for the most successful vet visit. She suggests ways to tailor your dog’s medical care to not only your dog’s needs but to yours as well. Personally, I feel like a more empowered client, which can only help me make better, more informed decisions for my boys...

We’re certain that you too, as a savvy dog mom or dad, will find your voice as an advocate for your dog after reading Speaking for Spot, which is why we’re giving away a copy to one lucky reader. Raffle entry is easy! You’ll be one step closer to taking a stand for your pup.
