    Elder pet care is a major priority for pet parents with a senior dog. If you’re in this situation, you already know that your animal has different needs than a puppy or a middle-aged dog.

    If you have an elderly dog who’s starting to show their years, there are several things you can do to ensure your beloved pet is comfortable and happy.

    If your dog is up in years but still acting spry, that’s fantastic. These tips can help your companion stay that way for a long time to come.

    One of the most important aspects of senior pet care is keeping your dog as comfortable as possible, for as long as possible. For example, if your dog is having some issues getting around your home, there are some simple things you can do to help increase his or her mobility.

    Senior pets may not be able to get into the car as easily as they used to. If your pet still wants to go on car rides but can’t hop up into the back seat due to arthritis or some other health issue, consider getting a ramp.

    Bedding is another important component of elder pet care. Younger dogs will typically flop themselves anywhere on the floor and be just fine. Senior pets, on the other hand, will typically need more of a cushion due to aching joints. Orthopedic dog beds provide the comfort and support our furry senior citizens need.

    A well-rounded diet is extremely important for dogs of all ages. But as a dog grows old, they may have changing dietary needs.

    Many dog foods actually lack the nutrition necessary for a dog to be at its healthiest. Some even contain products that may be difficult to digest. There are certain dog foods designed specifically for senior dogs, that might be better on their digestive system. You might also try giving your dog a dietary supplement to support their digestive health and get them the nutrients they need. Talk to your vet about whether or not you need to make changes to your companion’s diet.
