Senior Dog Care

All dogs will eventually become seniors. It is important to provide your dog with proper care and adjustments to their lifestyle as it becomes necessary.

When does a dog become a senior?

The age at which a dog becomes a senior will vary based on their size, but dogs are considered to be seniors at the age of 7.

What are common senior dog health issues?

The ageing process makes your dog more susceptible to skin problems, heart and kidney disorders, dental disease and osteoarthritis. As your dog ages daily tasks such as going up or downstairs, rising following periods of rest or going on long walks can become more difficult. It is important to modify yours dogs daily routine as needed.

How should I care for my senior dog?

Your dog’s annual wellness examination is an excellent way to monitor their health. An annual visit allows us to keep track of their weight, activity levels, and early disease detection. There are many ways we can help your dog to be happy and comfortable throughout the ageing process.
