At Dogville, we have a special place in our heart for senior dogs. Our team will do everything we can to make sure their every need and comfort is taken care of during their stay with us. Today we wanted to highlight a helpful article for owners of senior pets. The article is titled “SENIOR DOG HEALTH.” Here is the intro to the article:

“Regular veterinary examinations are important for overall health at any age. Annual examinations are the norm, but more frequent exams may be needed, based on your pet’s health.

As a dog ages, signs of potentially serious health problems are commonly overlooked by pet owners as “normal for an old dog.” Some changes are to be expected with old age, some are not. Learn to watch for, and differentiate between, normal and possible medical problems for your senior dog. It is much better to err on the side of caution and have anything new or unusual in your dog checked out as soon as possible by your veterinarian.”
