From preventing the development of joint disease to treatment options for all stages of arthritis, Dr. John T. Shokoff discusses:

If you could sum up Arthritis In Dogs: Understanding & Treating Canine Degenerative Joint Disease in three words, what would they be?


Which scene was your favorite?

Best part of the book is when the author shares his experience with his dog.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Really, this audiobook is best used over several listening sessions. Any pet owner will tell you that one of their great frustrations is seeing their beloved pet suffer. In this book, we learn both the warning signs and methods and remedies to address them...helping greatly to diminish their suffering. The author's insights and tips will actually help you reduce the frequency and cost of vet visits! As for the narrator, I was already a fan of Mr. McBride from some of his other audiobooks, and luckily found this one when I looked up his name to see any new titles. His delivery reflects that of an owner's compassion,and an expert's presentation. As an owner myself, I really appreciate that this wonderful book was written and recorded. Thank you!
