Dr. Nancy Kay’s one-of-a-kind book on how to be a top-notch medical advocate for your dog has amassed a number of awards, glowing reviews, and enthusiastic testimonials. Recently, Speaking for Spot won BIG at the 2009 Dog Writers Association of America Contest, honored with both the Eukanuba Canine Health Award for the publication that best promotes health and well-being of dogs, and the Maxwell Prize for best blog! (On a personal note, Dr. Kay’s blog IS one of the best I’ve seen. As a dog owner, I read it regularly as I always learn something new about my pup’s health and how to discuss matters with his vet in an informed and rational manner–difficult when there’s love and money involved!) If you want to get a feel for Dr. Kay’s style and the matters she takes to heart, listen to her appearance on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross.
