If you have a dog that's older than eight or nine years old, there's a good chance that your canine companion would be considered a senior. As your pet ages, there are many steps you should be taking to help him or her lead the happiest and healthiest life possible.
Schedule Biannual Exams
For most adult dogs, an annual health and wellness exam is sufficient. However, when your dog reaches senior age, your veterinarian may recommend more frequent exams to stay on top of even the smallest of changes in your dog's health.
