Krasty, is a 9 years old “gentleman”. As we know, all dogs over 9 years are considered "seniors", and, as they get older, we have to take into account certain special care.
It is worth mentioning that small dogs, like Krasty, tend to be more long-lived.
The diet represents a very important factor, for example the food for senior dogs must contain less calories, since the activity of a dog is reduced compared to when they were younger. Generally it is rich in fibre to satiate them and it is prepared with more proteins in order to compensate the muscle mass they lose. It is advisable to supplement with vitamins in order to strengthen the bones, so we will be able to reduce possible arthritis problems (It is very important to increase veterinary checks and controls).
Your dog should have fresh and clean water in abundance, since it is essential to stay hydrated. At this stage of their lives, their teeth may be affected, forget about giving them hard bones to be entertained, it is preferable to use other types of treats. As for the walks, it is convenient that you keep an exercise routine, so that you keep them in good shape physically and mentally: two daily walks of 20 minutes is recommended.
The dog should avoid jumping on the bed and sofa, it would be best to have a very soft floor bed so it will not hurt its joints. Also pampering and company should be the main thing in terms of caring for an older dog.😍🐶
