NPR: Nicholas Dodman on Caring for Your Aging Dog

From http://www.pawesome.net/2010/11/required-listening-to-help-your-white-muzzled-friend/. (Thanks Linda!)

Dave Davies interviews veterinary behaviorist and author of Good Old Dog, Nicholas Dodman. This fascinating interview about raising and caring for aging dogs covers topics such as why you might not want to feed your dog “senior” dog formulas, how cancer is the number one killer of older dogs, and how smaller dogs live longer than larger ones (and how size affects how you calculate your dog’s age in human years). If you have an older dog or are considering adopting an older dog (Hello, Muttville!), this is a must listen.
