WALTHAM Booklets

In collaboration with scientific experts, WALTHAM has produced a series of pocket booklets to share knowledge on various aspects of pet care.

The latest of these booklets, the WALTHAM Pocket Book of Human-Animal Interactions was produced in collaboration with Dr James Serpell from the University of Pennsylvania, USA. 

It is a valuable introduction to human-animal interactions for everyone interested in pets, from people sharing their lives with pets to those working within pet care and related industries.
