This book describes the different clinical aspects a veterinary surgeon should bear in mind when dealing with a senior patient. It addresses, by organ system, the particularities of the different diseases typical of this stage of life, the corresponding diagnostic protocols, and the special care and treatment required, with an emphasis on the most recent medical and surgical approaches and on the management of anaesthesia for surgical procedures.
