Milflores Publishing has released the latest in its best-selling Health Series Booklets: “Animal Bites” by Drs. Marilyn Vinluan, Jerome S. Ramos, Cecilia Montalban and Agnes Dominguez Mejia.

Many Filipinos have suffered animal bites or stings of different kinds—from dog bites to snake bites to bee stings. While some of these may just be aggravations, others are dangerous, even fatal.

This little volume contains a wealth of information—in language easily accessible to the layman and with illustrations Dr. David Brian Olveda—about the most common types of bites and stings, symptoms, remedies, and preventive care. Moreover, it provides an appendix containing diagnostic centers all over the country, including their locations.

The authors, like the authors of the other booklets in the series, are all experts from UP-PGH. Other booklets are: “Hypertension Among the Young;” “Anemia: Unmasking the Silent Enemy;” “My Kidneys and Me;” “Allergies: Dermatitis, Rhinitis, and Asthma;” and “Do You Snore?”. Series Editor is Dr. Agnes Dominguez Mejia, Chair of the UP-PGH Department of Medicine and a professor in the UP College of Medicine.
