As Dogs Age
Senior dogs have special needs just like people. We often think of our aging dog as just simply “getting older” but the truth is old age is a blessing, not a disease. Mobility, digestion, and cognitive function are just a few of the challenges that getting older presents to both humans and dogs.

Count your blessings if your dog is older. One day you’ll be wishing for more time.
