My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was very lucky that my daughter brought this book home this afternoon. I have been reading through it this evening, and I can say that I really appreciate the information it is offering.
We have a "good old dog," though he is mostly an SOB. He is something like 14 years old, though, and has been in his twilight years for a while now.
This book helped because it talked about some of the typical ailments that older dogs are affected by, such as dental disease, laryngeal paralysis, diabetes, and cushing's disease. Though I have not read it thoroughly yet, the book goes into great detail about heart disease and conditions.
One of the things I really liked are the tips it provided, such as some things we can do around the house to make life a little more comfortable for our dog in his last years.
The book is written by veterinarians, but it sticks to layman's terms, which is helpful to a person like me. I would recommend this book as a resource for anyone who is living with an older dog.
