Things to consider: Weight Management
As dogs slow down they can easily gain weight, which can put additional strain on their joints. Be sure to measure and monitor your dogs weight so that you can adjust their food intake accordingly. As humans we all know that it is much easier to gain weight than to loose it, and this applies to our four-legged friends too!
