Consider using CBD or HEMP

With age comes the aches and pains of old bones. If your dog is struggling with any type of pain, CBD treats is a great way to alleviate the pain. It is also known to help decrease inflammation.

Accept the once, unacceptable.

Accidents are gonna happen, more often too. Your pups bladder isn’t what it used to be… Neither is their energy to get up. While they shouldn’t be wetting themselves every time they need to use the bathroom, don’t be surprised if you have to buy puppy pads again.

Keep them properly exercised.

Crucial to a dogs life, exercise keeps them healthy and active. One of the top causes of premature death in dogs is obesity. If you can keep their weight down, it’s for the better.

This is also a key sign of a happy dog that has plenty of years left to live! It’s always best to check with your vet about the perfect amount of exercise if you’re unsure. It’s pretty self-explanatory though, you don’t want to work your senior dog too hard! This isn’t good either.

Invest in them!

There are many ways to invest in making life easier for your old dog. This also depends on which breed you have and what issues they are facing.

Dog Ramp – This can be extremely helpful for breeds that are prone to back problems. Usually smaller dogs will be the ones who need these ramps the most.

Common Breeds This Is Used For:

★ Dachshunds

★ Pembroke Welsh Corgis

★ Chihuahuas

★ Miniature Pinschers

Dog Lift Harness – More commonly used for larger dogs, this is great for mobility issues. It will allow your dog to still put pressure on their legs. You simply can maneuver or assist them walking by the handle on top. Also works great as a tool to help with rehabilitation after an injury.

Common Breeds This Is Used For:

★ German Shepherd Dog

★ Labrador Retriever

★ Golden Retriever

★ Doberman Pinscher

Photo by: @jetthetherapydog

Floor Mats – This is a super great idea for any breed at any age! Dogs are prone to slip on any hard floor surface. Especially tile and wood flooring. In older dogs, it’s more likely to cause a debilitating injury as well.

From my personal experience, I’ve had a senior dog slip and fall on my tile floor playing with another dog. She was paralyzed from the waist down. My family had to spend thousands on surgery and physical therapy, and still my dog wasn’t guaranteed to walk again.

If there’s one thing you take from this article, I hope it is this one. Just adding a couple more floor mats can really make a different in a dogs quality of life.

25 Healthy & Easy Human Foods Your Dog Can Eat!

We love our dogs! So naturally, we want to give them the best. Here are twenty-five foods that are dog friendly:

Always feed your dog these foods in moderation. Too much of anything can be bad!

1. Banana

Bananas are great for dogs because they are filled with potassium and vitamins. They are a great alternative treat because they are low in calories.

2. Egg

Eggs are good for your dog raw or cooked! They are high in protein and fatty acids which give your pup loads of energy. Every part of the egg is safe to feed your dog (even the shell.) **It is recommended that dogs are supervised when eating the egg whole or shell**

3. Carrots

This orange wonder food has several health benefits for dogs! They are great for keeping your pups teeth and gums clean. Chewing on carrots remove the hardened gunk that sticks on their teeth. It also helps if your pup is having bathroom problems. This high-fiber snack will help rid your dog of their diarrhea.

4. Sweet Potato

Yummy freshly boiled or dehydrated; the sweet potato is a great healthy option for your pup! Remember to NEVER feed potatoes to your dog raw.

5. Peanut Butter

A favorite for most dogs! This is a great way to sneak your dogs medicine without them knowing. This treat is packed with Vitamin E that will ensure your pup fights off any nasty sicknesses going around. Just make sure to look for a brand that does not include xylitol in their ingredient list. This alternative to sugar is deadly to dogs.

6. Oatmeal

This breakfast food is not only good for you, but your furiend as well! Oatmeal should be unseasoned and plain for your pup. However, adding other dog safe ingredients like bananas or pumpkin is a great way to add flavor! This treat is high in carbohydrates and is perfect for dogs who are sensitive to grain.

7. Flaxseed

This magical seed is beneficial in many ways for your pup! It promotes a healthy coat and will get rid of any dry hair. This will also help if the problem is deeper than the fur, escalating to dry skin. Sprinkling a tablespoon onto your dog’s food once a day will do the trick!

8. Apples

Dogs love this one for the sweet taste and the crunchy texture! Apples are loaded with vitamins to help your pup grow strong. Always pre-slice these treats and make sure to remove the seeds and core.

9. Cottage Cheese

Not many know about this one. Cottage cheese is a great snack for dogs because it is high in calcium. This can help with bone and joint issues. Also, it is fairly bland so you don’t need to worry about a long ingredient list.

10. Green Beans

An all around great treat for your dog! These veggies are high in fiber, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid and many more! They are also a great snack if you are concerned about your dogs weight, as they are low in calories. Make sure these green beans are unseasoned, because too much salt can be bad for dogs.

You can mix it in slowly to their diet.

12. Turkey

This is a healthy alternative to regular dog food. Turkey is super low in fat compared to other meats. It is high in protein and phosphorus. This meat in addition to other dog safe ingredients can replace kibble entirely. It makes for a healthier homemade dog food diet!

13. Bell Pepper

Plain chopped bell peppers are a delicious veggie for your pet to enjoy! The red bell pepper is the highest in nutrient. They carry vitamins like A & C and also antioxidants! Bell peppers can also help with joint and bone issues by decreasing inflammation. It’s a good idea to introduce bell peppers slowly over time to see how your dog reacts.

14. Turmeric

This orange spice is one of the few seasoning options that are good for dogs! Adding turmeric in with cooked meats and vegetables can give some missing flavor to the otherwise unseasoned meal. Turmeric is an excellent source of antioxidants! It also has properties to help with pain and epilepsy.

15. Greek Yogurt

Plain Greek yogurt is very nutritious for your pup! It works wonders for your dog’s digestive track. If things haven’t been normal in the backyard recently… yogurt might just do the trick. Just be weary of any “lite” or “sugar-free” options, because they may contain xylitol.

16. Pumpkin

This festive squash will do wonders for your pooch! Known for being a wonderful remedy for both constipation AND diarrhea. It should be given to your pup in small quantities. (tsp for small pups, tbs for bigger pups) It should always be cooked and unseasoned. (no sugar)

17. Watermelon

Seedless, chopped watermelon is a refreshing treat for any pup! This is another low calorie food to help with an “always hungry” pup. Watermelon is rich in vitamins and potassium.

18. Blueberries

This is a awesome training treat to give instead of store-bought training treats that have low quality ingredients and fillers. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants, which fight off cell damaging diseases like cancer.

24. Tuna

Canned or fresh tuna will work for dogs. This high protein fish is super lean and is a great source of healthy nutrition. If you are using canned tun make sure it has no added salt.
