Topics in this section explain the science of what we know about animals and aging, and help to break down the changes you may see in your pet, into bite-sized pieces for better understanding:
Learn about the natural aging process and what to expect as the bones, muscles, joints and brain ages. We review common problems related to the brain and skeleton in senior dogs and also how to identify pain in your pet. Using proven guides and resources, we’ll help you to assess your own pet’s body condition, home environment and quality of life, supporting you with feedback and helpful information to use again later when you need it.
Topics in this section will cover the many ways to manage pain, increase activity and improve your pet's quality of life:
Degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis is extremely common in adult and senior pets and can be very debilitating. We want to show you that there is soooooo much you can do at home and to keep your doggie active and comfortable. We look at how supplements, weight management and exercise can all positively influence activity and ability. We delve into the area of mobility support and home modifications to help when necessary. And we explore the different classes of pain medication and veterinary modalities that can be used to bring pain relief when needed, so you know what to chat about with your family vet.
