SENIOR DOG CARE GET A GRIP

HELP KEEP YOUR OLD DOG STEADY

Older dogs are not as steady on their feet and may feel unsure. Not only is your older dog a bit less steady due to muscle or joint issues or discomfort, their eyesight may not be as sharp. As dogs age, their eyes may develop cataracts and their vision becomes cloudy. 

All of these physical changes, as well as the possibility of some lessening of cognitive function, add up to the possibility of a tumble. While dogs are not as prone to slipping and breaking a hip, as can happen to elderly people, their falls can have depilating consequences, just the same.

Reduce the chance of their falling and not being able to get up with these ez tips.

  • Put a bath mat under food & water bowls, gives traction & ez to keep clean
  • Consider carpeting steps your dog uses if needed
  • Install a dog gate to keep them from using the stairs
  • Their walks should be on level surfaces

Kinda like taking the keys to the Cadillac away from great-grandpa, it’s for their own good (your dog & great-grandpa).

Ever since people have shared their lives with dogs, we have been trying to get and keep nasty biting, stinging, disease-carrying bugs away from them and us.

It is said that during the Medieval plagues dogs and cats were both used to attract fleas off of the people and onto them. Seems a bit harsh to me, but if it was get the plague or use my dog as a flea magnet...

Have you ever wondered just how many actual dog breeds are recognized by the different registries. First a quick definition of what a dog registry actually does.

From Good Old Wikipedia...(I condensed) A breed registry is an official list of animals within a specific dog breed whose parents are known. Animals are usually registered by their breeders when they are still young. Such registries usually issue certificates for each recorded animal, called a pedigree, pedigreed animal documentation, or most commonly, an animal's "papers".
