Publisher's Summary

Life with an older dog is amazing. If we meet our dogs when they are bouncing, enthusiastic youngsters and watch them get stiff and steady, ageing seems to happen quickly and brutally. Yet, loving an older dog is the sweetest thing in the world, they know our every movement and we know theirs. Their eyes get foggy and they might need a little extra light for that midnight toilet break. They might do odd things like lie on a hard floor when surrounded by expensive memory foam beds. The older dog might be going deaf, or simply ignoring you; leaving you wondering which it is.
The sugar nose years are amazing times. They are easily as precious as puppyhood. The dog we have shared our homes with for many years, becomes the blood in our veins and the beat of our hearts. What do we watch out for though, how can we tell our dogs are healthy and happy? What can we do to keep them active and contented?

You will learn:

  • How dogs made it so easily into our homes and hearts
  • Why nutrition is so important to health.
  • How to monitor your dog’s health and why to keep records.
  • Mental stimulation games and why we should play them.
  • How to check your dog’s vital signs at home.
  • How to manage aches and pains, when medication may be needed and how supplements and therapies can help.
  • Signs of common age related illness.
  • How to manage and monitor your dog’s life quality.

This audiobook will help you provide the best possible care to your older dog, it will help you appreciate their quirks and give you tips of what to look out for. The guide is a handbook that will warm your heart and give you practical advice about the forever friend who shares your sofa and your life!

Great, as ever

I have many of Sally's books in multiple formats - audio, kindle and hard copy. This one was as good as the rest of them, helping me to cement my knowledge and further understand my dogs - thank you.

a beautiful book

a beautiful book about caring for your older dog. it is unfair that our dogs leave us far too soon but there is less heartache knowing you've done your best.
