Last Updated on January 11, 2021We all want our dogs to live longer and even wish they could live forever. Dealing with such a loss can be a terrifying thought for every loving dog owner out there. Still, it’s important to understand that what truly matters is how we contribute to making our dogs’ lives feel amazing, even during their last years! When reaching middle age, most dogs tend to gain a lot of health problems, which are mostly physical. The best way to avoid these issues and give your dog a great, healthy life is to bet on regular exercise and a healthy diet. As an old dog, he needs to maintain a healthy weight and muscles, good circulation, and a lot of joint flexibility. It’s your job, as a dog owner, to incentivize certain habits and exercises throughout your dog’s adult life so he can reach middle age in great shape and still be able to go for a walk with you when he’s older. So what are the things you should and shouldn’t do to help your pampered senior dog live his best life?
