This groundbreaking reference is the first and only comprehensive book to address the needs of older dogs and cats, providing the veterinary clinician, veterinary student, and animal health technician with health-related information that is clinically relevant and quickly retrievable in a simple format.
It offers a complete and practical review of the causes, incidence, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of both common and uncommon problems associated with the aging process and acquired illness. Each chapter offers tips on the
physical examination of that body system and provides quick-reference tables for guidance on diagnosis and treatment. Because of the increased health problems in aging dogs and cats and the ardent attachment of the pet owner, veterinarians need to know more about aging so they may delay or minimize the progressive deterioration of aging and improve the quality of life for geriatric dogs and cats.
