As your dogs get older they need more care, just like old humans. Most dog breeds are considered seniors after about 7 years. Make sure your best friend is taken care of. Here are a few tips to help keep your old dog in the best shape possible. Here is tip #3.

PRACTICE GOOD NUTRITION: Dietary needs can change with age as well. As pets become older and less active, it is easy for them to pack on the pounds. Look for foods formulated especially for senior pets. They are designed to meet senior nutritional needs, help manage weight and contain additional vitamins and minerals.
