From the Author
That's why I wrote COMPLETE CARE FOR YOUR AGING DOG. Even 20 or 30 years wouldn't be enough time to spend with a beloved canine--and we want a pets' golden years to be as happy as possible. So the book contains actionable advice. It's not simply a "go to the vet" book, although that of course is important. I want to empower you to recognize both healthy dog and problem dog issues, learn how to help your friend yourself, and promote a positive pet partnership with your other care-givers including the vet.
This book is a companion volume to COMPLETE CARE FOR YOUR AGING CAT, which covers old-age issues for your feline companion. At the other end of the spectrum, I've also written COMPLETE KITTEN CARE and COMPLETE PUPPY CARE, part of my list of 30+ pet care titles.
