Senior Dog Care: How To Cope Up And Care For Your Aging Dog?

Every living thing that is born grows older as the years pass by. Our beloved furry friends also age and faster than we might like. Most pet parents do not want to come to terms with this fact and choose to ignore it until it is too late. Taking care of senior dogs is something all dog owners will have to do at some point so it is best to learn how now.

When Is Your Pet A Senior Dog?

In general, vets say that a dog above eight years old is considered as a senior dog. However, aging also depends greatly on the lifestyle, breed, and size of the dog. Large and giant sized dogs age faster when compared to smaller breeds.

 

What To Expect In Senior Dogs Health?

As pets get older, they will have decreased energy levels. Their mobility might be affected and they are more likely prone to arthritis, joint pain, aches, and discomfort. Senior dogs also stand a high risk for obesity, heart, liver and kidney diseases.

 

Tips For Senior Dog Care:

  • Provide optimal nourishment and a balanced meal for your dog. This will help him with his energy levels and assure they meet their nutritional needs.
  • Your dogs might undergo pains and aches due to everyday activities. Help them ease the pain with Hemp Well Relief.
  • Provide orthopedic beds for your dog to reduce the stress on their joints. They will thank you for this.
  • Schedule a visit to the vet every three or six months for regular check-ups and tests. This is a crucial step in senior dog care and you can keep a track of your dog's health and possibly identify early onset health problems.
  • As dogs grow old, their dental health might also be compromised to a certain extent. Hence it is important to include oral maintenance along with regular grooming sessions.
  • Regular exercise keeps your dogs active and flexible. When caring for a senior dog, you could take advice from your vet to control the intensity of the exercises.
  • Older dogs need entertainment and should be kept busy. Provide them lots of toys which help keep them stimulated mentally.
 

Caring for a senior dog might seem overwhelming. However, if we understand and follow the above simple tips, we could help your dog to be healthy and live his last few years happily.
