    Caregiving and Hospice
    The books listed below were written for people who are caring for parents, spouses, and other (human) family members, so not all of the information in these books is entirely applicable to those of us who are caring for special-needs pets.  Nevertheless, I have found them to be very helpful as general reference books.
