Taking The Physiological Changes Of Aging Dogs Into Consideration

At Boca Park Animal Hospital, we love providing senior dogs with the care and support they need to age gracefully and comfortably. We understand that the experience of caring for older dogs can be a tremendously rewarding one that enhances and enriches the lives of dogs themselves, as well as their human caretakers. We truly are dog people at heart. We love to lend insight and guidance into caring for older dogs.

It is important to remember that many physiological changes occur during the aging process your canine companion is experiencing. These include:

  • Reduced hearing
  • Changes in eyesight
  • Arthritis and muscle mass loss
  • Cognitive dysfunction
  • Cardiac and kidney disease
  • And more

Some or all of these symptoms may not become noticeable until your dog is very old. Our veterinarians are skilled at detecting subtle changes in a dog's body that can easily go unnoticed by its owner. Early detection of these changes can help prevent the progression of a disease and minimize the suffering of a senior dog.
