Thanks to advances in nutrition and sophisticated medical care, older dogs and cats are the most rapidly growing segment in veterinary clinic populations. Offering clients options and expertise in treatment of older dogs will give your clinic the edge it needs. The first book of its kind, Canine Geriatric Behavior: A Clinician's Guide is indispensable for treatment of behavior changes and for diagnosis of underlying diseases that may contribute to symptoms of cognitive dysfunction in the older dog. Not only a useful reference in your clinic's library, this book provides client communication forms for you to copy and use in daily practice, including history and progress forms, FAQs, and instructions for clients (e.g., behavior modifying exercises, drug therapy information with potential side effects, etc.). As geriatric companion animals become an increasing and daily part of your practice, this book gives you the tools you need to diagnose and treat behavior problems specific to older dogs and to offer your clients the services they demand.
