Living with a senior dog

One of the most difficult things about being a dog owner is seeing your dog in pain.

If you’re lucky, your dog is aging so gracefully, you hardly notice it happening. Inevitably, though, he will reach a point when it becomes painfully obvious that he is starting to slow down

It is important to diagnose problems early like:

  • Arthritis

  • Kidney desease

  • Anxiety

  • Deafness

  • Blindness

  • Dementia or cognitive dysfunction

  • Incontinence

Because your best friend is not one to complain, it’s important that you have an eye to see all the signs about his behavior so in this way you can manages your dog’s pain and improve his quality of life.

Make a list of your dog’s changing behaviors to discuss with your vet during regular visits to be sure you’re not missing anything.

You can help you dog with supplements, keep his correct weight, provide a comfortable sleeping space, not much exercise if join problems and a love of love, patience and sweet talking.

I may not have the same active program with my old pal but the two of us will still have plenty of joyful, tail-wagging days ahead.
