Caring for a Senior Dog is a one stop resource to help people take the best care they can of their senior dogs.
I have a soft spot for old dogs, and they are the ones I foster and adopt. It turns out Red, the old dog I adopted 10 1/2 years ago, became more than my constant companion for 9 years, she was also my muse. She was the inspiration for this website, my FB group, SENIOR DOG CARE CLUB and upcoming podcast.
I had the misfortune of meeting too many vets who didn’t have the most compassionate attitude towards senior dogs. I ask questions, a lot of them, and have no trouble leaving one vet to find another if I’m not happy with the care I receive. I started wondering about the old dogs who lived with people who were more trusting than I am. Those who take every word a vet says seriously, and assumes they know everything. Or, who were looking for more ideas and solutions they just weren’t getting. Were dogs suffering because their humans didn’t know where else to turn to for advice?
That’s when CARING FOR A SENIOR DOG was born.
While I truly believe caring for an old dog is good for the soul, it can be difficult, frustrating, at times heart breaking and lonely. I didn’t know anyone else who had a senior dog, and I imagined that was probably true for many others. Where could we go to find people who “get it?” That’s when I started my FB group. It is a wonderful community of caring and compassionate members, a place where senior dog parents can come for advice, share experiences, post pictures or even just find a shoulder when they need one.
My third venture is a podcast. As much as I enjoy writing, nothing can beat my love of talking. This is another way for me to bring you the best possible information I can. I started one awhile back, but had to pause it for awhile. I will be starting it up again in the not too distant future.
