Aging Gracefully: Educational and Resources for the Care of Elder Dogs

Old age isn't a disease, but a stage of life for pets and owners to navigate. 

As dogs age, taking care of them becomes more difficult. Owners of aging dogs often struggle with their pets' dementia and incontinence -- as well as navigating through the maze of end-of-life care decisions.  

The good news is that there are more resources and knowledge available than ever on ways in which we can compassionately navigate the canine aging process. 

Your personal veterinarian can be your most valuable partner in helping you become educated on the most effective ways to ensure your dog lives their best life and age with dignity and grace.

Here are some resources that you may find to help your educational process in your wellness partnership with your veterinarian.
