The aim of correct care of the older pet is to improve the quality of life and prolong lifespan. Old age is not a disease in itself but there are numerous changes associated with ageing and many signs of deterioration can be slowed or minimised by correct feeding.

Bad breath, unpleasant body odours, stiffness, itchy skin, loss of vitality and interest in life are all signs of a developing toxic condition of the system. Accumulation of toxins comes from unsuitable diet together with a reduced ability to eliminate waste.

There is no need for a special diet other than one which is highly digestible and contains moderate amounts of protein and fat for the older animal, because the normal adult foods are already suitable for the older pet

Regular veterinary check-ups will identify problems at an early stage and allow progress to be monitored. Regular booster vaccinations may not be appropriate for the older dog.
