As your dog begins to age, some changes may need to be made to ensure that they remain happy and healthy for many years to come. With proper care, your senior dog will be able to fully enjoy their golden years! That’s why in this article, we will cover all the information you need to know about caring for an elderly dog.
Older puppies are born with insufficient energy and are at risk of experiencing joint problems or other health problems. You may need to change their beauty habits, diet, and activity level. Let’s first take a look at grooming and how to properly care for your old dog’s skin and fur.
Grooming old dogs
A common problem encountered by older dogs is their fur and skin problems. This may be matting or various skin conditions.
The reason these problems tend to occur with age is usually because your dog’s self-grooming speed is reduced, or not at all. This is usually due to stiffness and pain in the joints that make it difficult for your puppies to groom themselves comfortably.
Lack of combing can quickly lead to knots and tangles in the fur. Residual oil, dander and dead skin can also cause irritation and inflammation. Fortunately, these problems can be easily solved by regularly sorting out these problems.
You should expect to give puppies a little more love to their fur and skin when they are old. Brush their coats regularly, and occasionally bathe is not painful! Please remember that our groomers are experts, especially in caring for elderly dogs. If you need any help, Give us a shout!
Exercise older dogs
Older dogs usually also experience a decline in energy. They will not be as energetic as before. If there are joint problems and other age-related diseases, this will further reduce their overall energy reserves.
Therefore, it is important that we adjust their daily exercise routines to better match their current energy levels. Strenuous exercise and prolonged walking should be avoided. Instead, you can take your dog for short and relaxing walks a few times a day.
However, part of caring for older dogs is not to make them bored! Although they may be less physically active, they still need a lot of mental stimulation.use brain game or Enriching the game Let your dog have fun!
Senior dog diet
Because your old puppies have low energy levels, they may need to change their diet. A balanced diet suitable for energetic adult dogs may no longer be suitable for older puppies.
This is why many older dogs start to gain weight-which puts more pressure on their joints. To avoid this, you should change your dog to a balanced food specifically for older dogs.
These foods usually also contain nutrients that help promote the health of the puppies’ joints, which is very helpful for this period in the puppy’s life.
