How to Help Your Aging Pup Feel Healthier all the Time

Just like humans, pups age and grow old as time passes. Therefore, you need to care for them more as they graduate to senior dogs. They need to feel loved, comfortable, and healthy as age advances. Here are surefire ways to help your aging pup become healthier.

Maintain an Exercise Schedule

Your aging pup needs regular exercises for healthy weight, muscles, and joints. Thus, you can walk your pet to reduce anxiety and boredom. Ensure that the activities are minimal since your dog doesn’t have too much energy to run. Make the walks short so that your dog can remain active at a minimal level. Exercises aid digestion, flush toxins from the liver, reduces pain and stimulates the brain.

Buy the Right Dog Bed

The right dog bed is crucial for comfort and a goodnight’s sleep. You don’t want your aging pup to wake up with sore joints and muscles. Purchase beds with thick memory foam to support your dog when sleeping. The bed takes your dog’s body shape and wards off pressure on the hips and shoulders.

Consider Natural Supplements

Natural supplements assist in boosting your pup’s health in general. You can opt for an anti-aging supplement for dogs to improve circulation and the immune system. Ensure the ingredients are organic so that they can be useful to your dog. Some of the products contain lemon, milk thistle, camella, sambucus, which are all-natural. They are great for the brain, skin, hair, and dog nails.

Observe Oral Health

Your dog’s teeth need to be clean at all times to keep diseases at bay. Poor dental health leads to heart diseases among aging pups. Thus, it would help if you dedicated your time to brush your dog’s teeth at least twice a week. Dental chews and raw bones help minimize tartar buildup and plaque.

Comfort in Extreme Temperatures

When it’s cold, keep your aging dog warm using a sweater and cover them when sleeping. During the summer, ensure your pet has air conditioning and cool water. Senior dogs suffer heatstroke more than their young counterparts. Winters come with issues like frostbite and hypothermia in dogs.

Your aging pup needs to remain active with minimal exercises. The diet should contain natural supplements to boost overall health. Also, you should check their dentition regularly and brush their teeth. Monitor extreme temperatures to keep your dog comfortable as well. Your dog will be happy, and they will enjoy their golden years.
