The author was kind enough to give me a few chapters from the book before it was published to learn about massage and how my dog feels now that he is older. It gave me some great ideas on things that I can do to make him more comfortable and enjoy life as he continues to age. A chapter also suggested some supplements for my other dog that has really helped her with her anxiety. Looking forward to reading the rest of the book as I have not found any others like this!
What a wonderful book. I am so grateful to all the authors for sharing their expertise with me. The book is helpful, well organized, easy to read and an important resource for me. This book has helped me to understand so much more about the aging process that our two 11 year old Aussie siblings are going through and how I can help them be happier, healthier and more comfortable in their senior years.
A well written and researched book with lots of valuable information for dog owners.Your Dog's Golden Years book is an essential read for anyone who owns a dog. The Author has gone to great length to blend traditional and complementary care for dogs. A great reference that should be in the waiting room of all veterinarian practices as well as on the bookshelf of every dog lover
Thank you Jenny for getting so much useful information and putting it together for those of us who want the very best for our loving best friends! I thought I knew everything I needed to know about caring for my pet but I learned so much more. Anyone who owns a dog and wants to make sure they are comfortable, healthy and happy, especially in their later years, should own a copy of this book!
I became acquainted with this author through her efforts on behalf of homeless senior dogs for The Grey Muzzle Organization. As I type this review, my own adored senior dog is sleeping soundly by my chair; she and I are both grateful for the excellent information in this book. The 20 canine experts cover a wide range of topics including the special considerations of senior nutrition, understanding geriatric canine blood work, and in-depth explanations of complementary therapies that can enhance conventional treatment.The book also covers end-of-life care in an especially sensitive way. The chapter on home euthanasia actually left me with a sense of relief. It gently explains the progression of the home visit and really helped me to understand the process. The chapters on caregiver coping strategies and "when to get another dog" validate the idea that at the end of our dogs' lives, we might have feelings and questions that none of us should be afraid to express.Thank you, Jennifer, for an invaluable resource that will benefit many generations of well-loved dogs and their people.
This is an EXCELLENT book for everyone who has a dog. Although I hate to think about my dogs getting older, I know it is happening. I loved the first chapter that was written "from the dogs perspective". I have a 10 year old dog going through the exact process right now. It opened my eyes on how he feels. He has always been there for me, and now he needs my understanding of the fact he is aging and slowing down.This book is like no other. It is so well written. Each chapter has various methods of helping your aging dog. Also, the fact that each professional also listed their favorite resources is an excellent feature. This offers the reader to further research on methods that are of interest to them.I would recommend every dog owner read this book! Thank you Jennifer for such well researched, informative, original, and needed book! My dogs thank you too.
I have three dogs from 5 to 9 years of age. As a responsible pet owner I am always trying to stay on top of current practices, remedies whether holistic, homeopathic or what your vet may prescribe for treatment. It's a lot to try to keep organized but our pets have no voice to tell us what is or isn't working and how they really are feeling, so it's up to us, their owners to be their voices and treat them as responsibly as possible.
This is a surprising book: a chapter on the very latest laser technology sits comfortably next to one on homeopathy; difficult issues of when, and how, to let go of your pet are tackled with intelligent sensitivity. The author presents options: she neither judges nor promotes. I found it easy to read and well written by experts in each field, who list their favorite books, blogs and web sites at the end of each section. These people know dogs! Would make a great gift for any owner of a dog, young or old.
