What are some signs that your dog is getting old? In this Vet Minute, Revival’s Director of Veterinary Services, Dr. Marty Greer, talks about signs of old age in dogs and what is normal aging and when you should consult with your veterinarian.
Signs My Dog Is Getting Old?
What’s normal and what’s not when you have an aging dog? Normal signs of aging in dogs include slight cloudiness of both eyes, not hearing quite as well, and moving a little slower. Some signs that should not be assumed as normal aging are unexplained weight loss, an increase in water consumption and urination, lameness, forgetfulness and other changes in their daily routine. Should you notice these things, you should take your dog to see your vet for further evaluation.
