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 #5.

DENTAL CARE: Taking care of teeth is just as important for pets as it is for humans. Regular dental cleanings by the vet and proper brushing at home can prevent gum disease, which can lead to more serious conditions.
