Summary
How to Age-Proof Your Dog: The Art and Science of Successful Canine Aging gives dog owners the information and tools they need to provide proactive and preventative health care starting early in their dog's life and continuing throughout various stages and ages. In this book, readers are instructed not only how (and why) to do a regular physical examination of their dog's body, but also a regular exam of their dog's breed, behavior, personality - even of their dog's five senses. They are asked to consider why they chose that dog and how the dog fits in with their lifestyle, so that they can choose the right health maintenance goals for their dog. Specific information is provided about the most important things for owners to start young to help their dog become old. Health, activity, sensory and behavior trends in youth, middle age and old age are covered, along with breed-related health problems. How to Age-Proof Your Dog is a guide for dog owners so that they can start, and then keep, their dogs on a smooth, straight road to a successful old age. --amazon.com
