Ways to Support Your Senior Dog 

There are many ways that you can keep your senior dog healthy, happy, and pain-free.  Keep in mind that just because our dogs get older in age, does not mean that their quality-of-life declines!  By combining a holistic approach, healthy diet, and regular exercise, your senior dog will be able to live life to the fullest.  Please continue reading this article to learn more about what you can do to support your senior dog.

Regular Veterinary Visits – There may be certain health-related issues which contribute to pain and anxiety.  Regular vet visits will ensure that there are no major issues. Otherwise, you will be able to tackle any issues with proper care.

Canine Massage Therapy – I bet you didn’t realize that dogs can benefit from massages as well!  These massages release serotonin which makes your senior dog feel great.  Just keep in mind that dogs with fractures, sprains, or ruptured disks should not be massaged.

Cannabidiol (CBD) – We should all be aware of the many benefits of CBD oil.  This is natural, safe, and is derived from hemp and cannabis.  It can help tackle chronic pain, anxiety, seizures, and many more.  Always consult your Veterinarian before using the product on your senior dog.

As you can see, there are many things that you can do to support your senior dog and give them the best quality of life.  Unfortunately, natural treatments alone cannot be used to treat serious illnesses such as cancer.  You can always reach out to your Veterinarian for more ways to help your senior dog.
