Zoobiquity: How Jaguar Breast Cancer, Dolphin Diabetes, and Flamingo Heart Attacks Will Transform Human Medicine


“Fascinating and instructive… astute and funny… (as) perception-altering as works by Oliver Sacks, Michael Pollan, and E. O. Wilson.” Booklist

Did you know golden retrievers can get breast cancer? Koalas catch chlamydia? And some dinosaurs even suffered from arthritis? Zoobiquity is a simple but revelatory idea: Animals and humans get the same diseases. In their new book, UCLA cardiologist Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and science writer Kathryn Bowers introduce a groundbreaking approach to medicine. Drawing on the latest in medical and veterinary science, they look across species at topics from heart problems to addiction to explain what animals can teach us about the human body and mind.
