About Alison Campbell

I have three true passions in this life:
I am an information sponge. I love to learn and - just as eagerly - love to grow.
I am enchanted by words and have always written - even as a young child I was a poet.
I want to help other people to expand themselves - nurturing is a big part of who I am.

It's an inevitable then, that I should find myself after years of nursing, home educating and running a dog care business, considering ever-increasingly, that what I am, is an author. Inevitable also, that by far the majority of what I write is non-fiction expansion material. Currently this centres very much around rats, dogs and running a small business. I also - in my best moments - am still a poet.

My life is currently very fluid. I do own a house in the UK, which is currently rented, and at the moment I live in my motorhome, usually somewhere in the North of England. I did this to escape the treadmill we all so easily slip onto in this busy life, and to apply the principles of minimalism and essentialism to my life. Although I still run the dog care business from wherever I am, and still do some hands-on work in that regard, most of my work time is now taken up with writing. If not writing, you might find me cooking, walking, enjoying the people I love, in an atmospheric pub drinking whisky or real ale, watching Liverpool play, listening to Audible or helping out on my sister's smallholding.

A great reference and guide for the most common problems our furry little friends are likely to suffer from. A great source of information to help us do as much as we can to try and stop the health issues occurring in the first place.

Fantastically written, and easy to understand.
As a rat owner, I'm keen on prolonging their already short life.
This book is very handy reference for rat diet and assistance for well being.
I can highly recommend this to anyone who wants to make a difference in their rats life.
