Keep Them Active
Keeping them as active as possible helps their weight stay down as well as maintains muscle mass. We all can benefit in this practice!
Check Blood Work
Regularly monitoring their bloodwork evaluates kidney and liver function for possible issues.
Your pet may benefit from changing to an orthopedic bed. Heating pads may also ease sore joints or arthritis. Make sure though they’re thermostatically controlled.
Small Environment Changes
You may need to add carpet where slipping occurs or a ramp to aid in lifting. Extra lighting may avoid a misstep as vision weakens.
Make sure your dog food covers senior needs and don’t over feed through meals and treats!
