Kevin DeTrude, owner of Beverly’s Pet Campus in Fishers, IN, and Dr. Jerry Flanders of VIP Animal Care discuss ways to keep your dog happy and healthy as he or she grows older. Your dog may be considered “older” by the time they are about 6 years of age. But you can check with your vet to see what issues you may or may not need to worry about with your dog in particular. Take a good look at your fur baby’s food – be sure it is the right balance and nutrition for your dog. You also want to make sure that you are giving your dog enough exercise and keeping them active. This can go a long way to helping them both physically and cognitively. And always be sure you ask your vet any questions you have and bring up any issues you may be seeing with your furry friend. You know them best, so don’t hesitate to ask! Better safe than sorry!
