Your senior dog has given you so many years of love, loyalty and laughter. For the next few years (I hope lots of years), you may need to take a few steps to help their senior years be more comfortable for them.
Start watching your senior dog and see if they seek out the warmest spot in the house. Whether they are chasing a sunbeam or lying on top of the heat vent, our older dogs naturally want to keep their older, stiffer joints warm and supple.
TIP! We use those polar fleece blankets as an extra dog bed cover. Not only are they warm and cozy, they wash easily and come in a bazillion colors at a great price. Plus, if your dog is a vigorous fluffer (as we call ours who take bed fluffing to an aerobic level exercise), they get extra exercise.
Keeping your senior dog warm and happy takes just a few extra minutes and offers them years of toast comfort.
As a business owner, I get a LOT of requests for guest blog posts. As I rule I don't do them for lots of reasons, but this one caught me eye. Maria, from Roto-Rooter, emailed and shared some info on their Pet Rescue program and I was all in!
