Helping Senior Dogs

As dogs age the risk of them falling is greater on hardwood, laminate and tile floors.

 Achy joints, muscle pain and decreased confidence make mobility harderon hard surfaces.

 You will notice your senior dog tip-toeing, or hesitant gait while walking.

 Fractures, swollen joints and bruises can happen from slips and falls.

 Here are a few easy things you can do to make it safer for your furry friend while giving them more confidence.

  • Keep Nails and Fur Around Paws Trimmed

Keep nails trimmed regularly and trim down fur between paw pads

  • Use Non-Slip Pads and Rugs

Place rugs and non-slip pads around places they sleep.

Use non-slip pads and rugs under their eating bowls.

  • Secure Steps

Place runners on hardwood steps or use a baby gate to stop them from going

Up the stairs.

  • Maintain Healthy Weight

Overweight dogs have more pain and joint pressure.

Having a balanced diet creates a healthy weight and improved mobility.

  • Walking Dog/Puppy Socks

cotton socks.

I have loved animals since I was a small child. My father was allergic to all cats and dogs,so hard as it was for me, we could not have any pets. Once I was on my own, I adopted cats and dogs I found on the streets of Atlanta. Some I adopted from a shelter,but mostly I found them. My love for four legged friends continues to grow. I truly love seeking out not only new products that make their life better,but also learning more about them and best ways to care and keep them healthy and happy!
