Steve Duno is a freelance writer residing in Seattle, Washington. A native New Yorker, Steve has coauthored four books, including Choosing a Dog, Leader of the Pack, Show Biz Tricks for Cats, and The Everything Cat Book.

As more pets succumb early to cancer and other illnesses, their owners are searching for alternative forms of treatment. Simon has over 25 years of experience combining traditional and alternative forms of therapy. Together with canine behaviorist Duno, he has written a guide for the lay reader to use in concert with qualified veterinary consultation. The plan recommends dietary, environmental, and lifestyle changes along with regular veterinary check-ups, tests, and advanced medical and surgical techniques. The first section examines the aging process and how it affects each of the dog's organs and bodily functions. Part 2 covers preventive practices such as weekly home exams, exercise, grooming, diet, and obedience training. The final section discusses therapies for specific conditions. Readers will be interested in the authors' other books, including What Your Dog Is Trying To Tell You (LJ 3/1/98). Recommended for larger public libraries.?Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., WI
