CARING FOR OLDER DOGS

A relationship with a dog is an incredibly magical experience. Dogs have a mysterious way of cheering us up without much effort, just by being their furry selves. Just like magic!

According to studies, pet companionship comes with the following benefits:

  • Pet owners are less likely to suffer from depression.
  • People with pets have lower blood pressure.
  • Playing with a pet can be calming and relaxing.
  • Heart attack patients with pets survive longer.
  • Pet owners over age 65 make 30% fewer visits to the doctor.

Besides the fact that we love our dogs, the above benefits are additions to the reason why we fear the prospect of losing them- particularly to old age.

Old age in dogs is not that different to what we humans go through: the deteriorating of muscle and joint functions. The only noticeable difference is that they cannot tell us where their pain is situated. Thus, we have to pay keen attention to notice when our canine friends need a little more than petting.

Subtle changes in your dog's behaviour will help you recognise when your dog is experiencing discomfort caused by pain and inflammation.

Signs to look for:

  • Licking or chewing of a joint,
  • Slowness or hesitation to climb stairs or jump onto furniture,
  • Changes in speed of movement,
  • Changes in appetite and sleep, and
  • Excessive panting.

Pains aside, growing old is good. It allows us time to experience life and make memories with our loved ones. Ideally, we want this for our pets too. Fortunately, there are ways to give our dogs the care they need to alleviate their pain when they get old. 

Hydrolysed Collagen Powder for Pets is the answer to your older dog's pain and inflammation alleviation. There are no side effects from using collagen supplements because all the ingredients are natural. Early inclusion of collagen supplements in your dog's diet will protect your furry friend from the aches and pains of getting old.

You do not have to dread the inevitable prospect of your dog getting older. Instead, enjoy the magic that comes with their companionship, and create good memories. Add collagen to your older dog’s diet to see a marked improvement in their life experience.
