Caring for a dog in his senior years

Caring for a dog in his senior years

Your dog is getting older, and caring for him during his senior years is something that you are looking forward to. However, seeing as you haven’t done it yet, you aren’t quite sure what your pet will need you to do. What should you anticipate?

Your pet needs you to keep a close eye him, as there will be a lot of changes happening within his body. You will need to recognize these and adjust your care accordingly. This may mean seeing that he is slowing down a bit, and breaking his walks into two shorter outings instead of one longer one, or possibly taking the speed down a bit. It also means planning ahead for his needs, like switching over to a food designed to nourish an older dog’s body like his. For additional information, please contact your local Colorado Springs CO vet.
