Caring for the older dog this winter

After a rotten summer winter has arrived with a blast.   Your aging dog will benefit from a few extra measures to help them maintain their joint flexibility and comfort.
 
If you are going out for a walk then a dog coat is beneficial to help them maintain good body temperature and keep those joints a bit warmer.
 
Make sure their beds are away from drafts and if possible raised slightly off of the floor.
 
You should be feeding an age appropriate food and you may need to increase the amount a bit over the winter months as your dog will burn more energy keeping warm.
