Overview

UPDATED & REVISED! Keep Your Dog Loving Longer, Living Better!

You can teach an old dog new tricks--and give him the best care possible. The good news is that dogs are living much longer lives--thanks to advances in veterinary technology. But older dogs do have special needs and require additional emotional support, nutritional help, and medical care. A longer life span also means more dogs suffer age-related conditions such as kidney problems, arthritis, cancer, stroke, senility, and diabetes. Complete Care for Your Aging Dog contains the answers you need to care for dogs that are seven years and older. Pet expert Amy Shojai explains:

* What changes to expect as your dog ages--and which changes are natural and which are warning signs that should send you to the veterinarian
* Which pet-specific over-the-counter medications every owner should keep on hand
* Tips on everything from choosing the right products and food for your aging dog to performing nursing care at home
* How to use the L.O.V.E. Program to keep your dog loving longer and living better
* Different life spans and concerns for different breeds
