Help Your Pet Age Gracefully

| March/April 2004

I’m so excited: I just learned that, according to some experts, old age officially begins at 65. I still have three more years until I’m really old.

Truth is, nobody wants to think of themselves as old. We live in a culture that tries to deny the inevitability of aging, and we often reserve our deepest feelings of denial for our pets, hopelessly wishing they would never get old.

It’s from this denial that we’re constantly trying to find or brew up the magical elixir that will make us immortal. This anti-aging campaign has come up with a lot of bunk stuff, but herbs actually can help us and our pets ease into our final years with comfort and grace.
