Looking after an older dog

You share your home with a dog who has recently entered into his senior years. What should you know about looking after an older dog?

Your pet still wants to be a part of your life just as much as he always has, but his age may change the way he is able to do this. His capabilities may change when it comes to walks and playtime, so be aware of this and alter these activities accordingly. Make sure you are able to be there to care for your pet when he needs you, which may be more often than he has needed you in the past. Be vigilant and adjust your care as needed while making sure to take his veterinarian’s suggestions. This will help you offer your pet a safe place to call home. For additional information, please contact your local White Rock, TX vet.
