Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a dog owner, you know that caring for your older pet can be a challenge. It's hard to watch your dog — whose frisky puppy days don't seem so long ago — begin to slow down a little and go gray around the muzzle. But thanks to extraordinary advances in veterinary medicine and pet nutrition, dogs are living longer, and with the right kind of care you can help your pet stay healthy and happy well into his golden years.

A practical and sensitive all-in-one reference, Your Older Dog guides you through the aging process in dogs, starting with middle age. With plenty of information on maximizing your dog's active years and a complete guide to age-related health problems, Your Older Dog offers the latest research from veterinarians and pet care experts, including:

  • What to expect as your dog grows older, and how to recognize the onset of old age

  • Preventive health care, with tips on developing a routine diet, using nutritional supplements, exercising, and choosing the best veterinary care

  • Safe and effective alternative treatments for aging dogs — ranging from acupuncture and massage to herbal and homeopathic medicines

  • The best approaches to such common illnesses as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and respiratory and digestive difficulties

With adorable color photos and illustrations throughout, Your Older Dog gives you the vital information and reassurance you need to provide the best care for your best friend.
