Video TranscriptWhat's normal and what's not when you have an aging dog? Hi, I'm Doctor Greer, Director of Veterinary Services with Revival Animal Health. 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.
