What's important is a healthy food, and the proper supplements and age appropriate exercise. You might need to make special accommodations for a senior that might have trouble walking, seeing, or hearing.
Bone & Joint health:
Keeping your dog fit, and keeping the weight off will also reduce joint related issues.
Skin & Coat Health:Omega's are excellent for the health of your dogs skin and coat. Supplements such as coconut oil, salmon oil and other fish oils are excellent. These can help a dog with dry skin or allergies.
A healthy diet is the best thing you can give to your dog. You want to choose a food with more meat than fillers or grains. Grain-free food is best. (Especially for dogs with allergies) Raw diets are excellent if you can stomach it! But there are freeze-dried raw foods that are easy to feed, and dogs love them. With a healthy diet free of grains, your dog will poop less. Isn't that what we all want?!
Kuranda Beds are excellent for older dogs. (And great for shelter dogs!)
