Just because your dog is getting on in years it’s worth remembering, he’s still a puppy at heart!
Sure, he may be a bit slower on his feet and he may be less able to run the length of a football field the way he once did, but mentally his approach to life is not too much different from when he was a six-month old bundle of energy and fun.
For senior dogs we recognise the need to make small adjustments to their lifestyle based on their breed, life-stage and individual personality. The following guides can assist in making decisions about diet, health, physical fitness and behaviour for owners of older dogs.
As our dogs age, it’s important to increase dialogue with our veterinarian. Picking up on early stage changes can not only save lives, it can extend them considerably.
