As pet owners, we want to ensure that our pets have the happiest and healthiest life possible. It can be difficult to watch your pet go through health problems as they age. Here are 5 ways to care for your senior pet:
Given that they no longer possess the same levels of energy as a puppy, elderly dogs have a higher risk of losing their ability to maintain a healthy weight. It is essential to select the best food that is intended for them, including foods with less fat and calories, to prevent needless weight gain.
Since our pets can’t communicate verbally, it is important to keep an eye out for physical changes that indicate your pet is experiencing joint pain. These symptoms include limping, trouble changing positions and moving, and lying down while eating. As soon as you detect these changes, it's crucial to get professional assistance.
As your pet ages, their immune system weakens, making them prone to all sorts of illnesses. It is recommended to take them to the vet every six months to keep them in optimal health.
The likelihood that your elderly pet will lose their mobility will decrease the more active they are. The best way to keep them active is going for walks or spending time at a local park. Dogs who lose muscle suffer from frailty syndrome, which can speed up ageing. Getting your pet out and active, especially at an older age, can reduce frailty syndrome or any other mobility issues.
Supplements that are beneficial to introduce to your senior pet include fish oil (excellent for bones, joints, and skin), glucosamine (healthy for joints), and/or probiotics, in addition to nutrient-rich food they're used to (good for digestive health).
To help your senior pet age with grace, we highly recommend trying some of our Joint Strength Chews.They are specifically formulated to alleviate pain and swelling in the hips and joints. Made with glucosamine, dried yucca stodgier extract, and MSM, or MSM, the chews ease the symptoms of arthritis by reducing pain and stiffness in the joints.
Felix + Fetch’s Joint Strength Chews accelerate the healing process after exercise, by minimizing muscle damage and stress, lower joint pain, and lessen inflammation.
