[Editor’s Note: Our story about Bear Dog reminded me of this excellent advice column on older dogs from a couple years ago. There’s some great information here.]
In today’s Seattle Times, veterinarian Dr. Karen Weeks answers a bunch of questions about the health of older dogs. In the column, she addresses issues of diet, changes in behavior and quality of life in pets that are advanced in age. This is great information if you currently have an older dog, and it’s good to know for those of us whose pets might not be there yet, but will be someday. Plus, there are links at the bottom of this column to previous installments, which cover canine health throughout a dog’s life, a good resource.
