    For ten years, Pete Wedderburn has been writing the Telegraph's monthly column on pets. He answers readers' questions on a wide range of pet ailments and behavioural issues drawing upon 25 years' veterinary experience - along with an evident enthusiasm for animals of all kinds. International Cat Care has known Pete for many years – and he regularly directs cat owners to our website for additional advice.

    As ICC, We were delighted to read and review this new collection of stories based on his own cases. Pet Subjects is a great read. The twenty two tales feature dogs, a budgie, turtle, hamster and rabbit and, of course, cats.

    There are cats with health problems like Jackson, a ginger boy with an odd cough with an unexpected cause. And Chico the black cat whose owner's intuition about his uncharacteristic behaviour helped to uncover a serious health issue. And confident Thor who developed a strange phobia about his food bowl.

    In each case Pete talks through the steps from initial visit to diagnosis and every story is followed by a Q&A section with real enquiries from readers on a related topic. There is a surprising amount of useful information in what might appear to be light read.

    It's a super book by a marvellous vet. All the stories are written in an engaging and highly readable style. Some are heart-warming and a few have sad endings, but they are all informative as well as entertaining.

    A hardback edition is out now at £12.99
