Elderly dogs begin to present some physical and behavioral changes. The hair may be more whiten as well as our stay gray. There is also the report decreased hearing, smell and sight. Try not to change the great objects of the House frequently, such as couches and chairs.
Some breeds may develop joint problems and have your mobility is reduced, so you need to decrease the pace of hikes, reduce the time of the tour, but doesn’t change the routine of 1 dog, because they need to exercise.
Avoid trips during more heat and the long car rides should have more stops, so that the pet can do and needs rest. In some cases, ladders should be avoided. Always explain the situation to the vet and follow the guidelines.
The teeth also require special attention. Consultation with a specialist, scans and brushing should get into the routine. The ration, in many cases, must also be changed to suit the age and meet the new nutritional requirements of the animal.
The pet can begin to have some “accident” related to the control of pee, urinary incontinence, and that doesn’t mean he has unlearned the correct location of the requirements, but that he can’t control.
Some may do a small amount of pee in their sleep, when recommending lead to médico-veterinário, to the beginning of the treatment.
Older dogs can change behavior and also have different attitudes, such as aggression, some sleep disorders, separation anxiety, fear and vocalization. Avoid changing the routine of pet sharply, and do not give lectures on it without understanding the reason of this behavior change. Count on the assistance of the veterinarian and a professional expert in behavior to understand and treat these changes in the best possible way.
The dogs learn at any stage of life, and any change in behavior or clinic can be treated to improve coexistence. With patience and affection, you will have many stories and complicity.
