Older dogs have special needs. They are more likely to suffer from chronic pain such as arthritis. Diseases occur more commonly and it is sensible for older dogs to see a Vet more regularly (3 - 6 months) than younger pets. There are many treatments available for a dog in pain and our veterinarian will help provide and effective pain management regime. Weight - Loss programs are very important if your dog is overweight and many studies show that leaner pets live longer and healthier lives. Do not "kill your pets with kindness". Ask our vet to advise the best pain management treatment for your dog.
