This book provides a practical guide to vets faced with ageing animals. Starting from the important standpoint that the subject of geriatrics presents topics and problems all of its own, the book does not simply present overviews of each subject as they relate to the younger adult, with aspects relating to the older animal tacked on. Instead the book covers topics that relate specifically to the geriatric patient.
