Our canine companions are living longer these days, just as we are.
The downside to an increased lifespan is the inevitable age-related health challenges that come along with it.
If you share your life with a furry friend who’s getting up in years, you’re not alone. According to PawNation.com:
“Fifty percent of owners share their hearts with pets age 7 or older. Modern veterinary care helps many dogs stay healthy a decade or more, and small dogs sometimes double that and age gracefully well into their twenties.”
It’s very important for your aging dog to see the vet regularly so you can stay on top of any changes in his health. But there are also many things you can do at home for your furry buddy that will help to make his golden years healthy, happy ones.
