TEACH YOUR 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 also means more dogs suffer age-related conditions such as kidney problems, arthritis, cancer, stroke, senility and diabetes-all of which can be successfully managed with your loving assistance. In this revised and updated edition, pet expert Amy Shojai explains:

• How to entice your aging dog to exercise both body and mind
• What changes to expect-what's normal and what are warning signs
• Which over-the-counter medications you should keep on hand
• Tips for choosing the right products and food
• How to provide nursing care at home
• Different life spans and concerns for different breeds
