Pets, particularly cats and dogs, are living longer than ever before. Almost half of their lifespan makes app the senior/geriatric life stage. This book is a practical manual that comprehensively covers geriatric medicine of dogs and cats, and provides readers, whether veterinary surgeons working in routine clinical practice or students approaching the end of their veterinary medicine degree, with a different approach to clinically useful information on this topic.

An entire new chapter on endocrine problems in senior pets has been added.
