In the last few decades, tremendous advances have been made in veterinary technology--nearly tripling the average life span of many pets. But cats that are seven years and older have special needs and require additional emotional support, nutritional help, and medical care. A longer life also means more cats suffer age-related conditions such as kidney problems, diabetes, and arthritis, all of which can be successfully managed with your loving assistance.
Complete Care for Your Aging Cat contains the answers you need to care for your mature cat. Pet expert Amy Shojai explains:
*How to entice your older cat into getting more exercise
*What changes to expect as your cat ages--and which changes are natural and which are warning signs that should send you to the veterinarian
*Which pet-specific over-the-counter medications every owner should keep on hand
*How to use the L.O.V.E. Program to keep your cat loving longer and living better
*Tips on everything from choosing the right products and food for your aging cat to performing nursing care at home
Filled with heartwarming stories, the latest developments in geriatric veterinary care, age-defying tips, and comprehensive reference material, this is the definitive guide to turning back the clock on aging--and keeping senior cats vital, happy, and active throughout their golden years.
