Dr. Marty Becker, a Veterinary Economics Editorial Advisory Board member, will travel coast to coast in the next three months on a nationwide bus tour to promote his latest book, released today—Your Dog: The Owner's Manual—Hundreds of Secrets, Surprises, and Solutions for Raising a Happy, Healthy Dog—and to sing the praises of veterinarians at pet-store visits with the motto, "Healthy Pets Visit Vets."

Dr. Becker will speak at the free, open-admission events at 29 Petco locations in 22 states. The tour kicks off in Houston April 25 and wraps up June 7.

Our own senior editor, Mindy Valcarcel, will travel with Dr. Becker on his first three stops, and Valcarcel and the rest of the dvm360 team will provide video tips and helpful articles from Dr. Becker as he makes stops at various cities throughout the tour.

For those who'd like to hear Dr. Becker speak and catch his bus tour, he'll be on hand at CVC in Washington, D.C., on May 7, where he'll be speaking, teaching, and signing copies of his newest book. Your Dog: The Owner's Manual (Grand Central Life & Style, $25.99). The new book hits shelves today and is available at brick-and-mortar bookstores and online.
