Dogs reach senior dog status at different ages, depending on their size and breed:
As your pet dog ages, you may notice that their bodies begin to change over time. This can be quite normal but it is also important to be aware that there can be more than the ageing process going on.
Ageing means that your dog’s organs can start to show signs of wear and tear and as with any other health issue, these problems are best dealt with as early as possible.
At Moycullen Vet Clinic, we would advise that older dogs are examined twice annually to check their general health. A lot can happen in a year if you are approaching or over the 100 dog years old!
Please speak to any of the team at Moycullen Vet Clinic for an appointment especially if you have any concerns about your senior dog.
