Preparing Adopters for Natural Disasters

Senior Dog Care & Supplements

As dogs mature and change, how we care for senior dogs changes, too. Like people, aging dogs have different needs and considerations than their younger counterparts. Along with proper nutrition, exercise and veterinary care, adding supplements may help support the well-being of a dog as he/she ages. Tell me about supplements.
