Senior Dogs:
What To Know Before
You Adopt

When you adopt a senior dog for that pup’s
forever home there are some things that should
be understood. Older dogs provide love and
affection as well as almost always being well
trained. That said, a senior dog may also have
some health related issues that come about from
aging. The first line of defense is to find out if
the pup has any aging problems. Hopefully, the
agency from whom you adopt the dog has that
information. One problem that an older dog
may have, just like a human, is arthritis. I have
written before about signs of that problem, such
as difficulty in standing up and not wanting
to go on walks. Your vet should be able to give
advice but glucosamine-chondroitin are often
helpful. Taking weight off the dog is a very good
idea. You should first consult your vet before any
treatment. Once the health issues are eliminated
or reduced, time for a good walk.
