A delight for all dog owners, this comprehensive and deeply-researched guide on how to keep our four-legged friends in the best possible health is filled with invaluable advice on topics like diet, exercise and environmental toxins, as well as a host of heart-warming stories of senior canine family members.
Two of the world's most popular and trusted pet care advocates reveal new science to teach us how to delay ageing and provide a long, happy, healthy life for our canine companions. The definitive, cutting-edge guide for every dog parent.
Like their human parents, dogs have been getting sicker over the past few decades. Why? Scientists are beginning to understand that the diseases affecting humans - cancer, obesity, diabetes, organ degeneration, and autoimmune disorders - also afflict canines.
As a result, our canine companions are vexed with health problems throughout much of their lives and have shorter life spans. Since our pets can't make health and lifestyle decisions for themselves, it's up to pet parents to make smart choices for their dogs' lasting vitality and health.
The Forever Dog gives us the tools to protect our four-legged friends. Rodney Habib and Dr. Karen Becker talked to top geneticists, microbiologists, and researchers, and interviewed people around the world whose dogs have lived into their 20s and even 30s. The result is this unprecedented and comprehensive guide, filled with practical information, invaluable advice, and inspiring stories about dogs and the people who love them.
The Forever Dog plan focuses on:
* diet and nutrition
* stress reduction
* tailoring care to the genetic predisposition of particular breeds or mixes
* recipes and types of food - and what the commercial manufacturers don't want us to know
* tons of practical tips
* how exercise, environmental toxins, and our lifestyles affect a dog's overall health.
Global medical breakthroughs have expanded our choices for canine health. The Forever Dog is the definitive dog-care guide that gives us the knowledge we need to make wise choices, and to keep our dogs healthy and happy for years to come.
