Senior Canine Care

The rate at which your dog ages depends upon the size and breed of your dog. Although smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger dogs, they may mature less quickly in the first few years of life. How do you know when your dog is considered a senior dog? A general rule of thumb is:

Large breeds: age 5
Medium-sized breeds: approximately age 7
Small and toy breeds: around age 10

As dogs age, normal health-related changes occur that can affect their overall health, well-being and comfort. Many illnesses and injuries can be prevented from progressing into more serious conditions when detected early and managed properly. At Flossmoor Animal Hospital, our goal is for you and your dog to enjoy the longest, healthiest life together.

We recommend a comprehensive exam at least every 6 months for your senior dog. Depending upon your dog’s age and health, we may also recommend additional testing, such as blood tests and urinalysis. The senior dog exams is also a wonderful time for you to discuss any age-related changes your dog may be experiencing or any concerns you have about your dog’s health or behavior with us. Our senior dog wellness package is inclusive.

Because dogs age more rapidly than people, dramatic changes in health can occur in as little as 3 to 6 months. If you notice any of the following signs, we recommend you schedule an appointment to have your dog evaluated:
