Four Things to Remember as a Pet Gets Older

Home » DR. G'S TIPS » Four Things to Remember as a Pet Gets Older

One day your pet will be old….


  1. Sometimes “old dogs” don’t move because they are in pain. Find an integrative medicine veterinary specialist to help him feel his best. Acupuncture is life changing for these old, arthritic pets.
  2. Your old guy will require more time to do everyday activities. Go slow and be patient. You are his whole world and he is trying.
  3. Feed him a balanced, moist diet. Work with a Certified Veterinary Food Therapist to pick the best diet for him.
  4. When you take him on the wagon walk… Put some leaves and sticks in his wagon. He still loves to smell new smells and enjoy the sunshine on his face.
