Just wanted to share this video (hopefully in the right place...) on looking after senior dogs. I found it really helpful and have ordered the book.

Laurie Edge-Hughes (world-renowned rehabilitation specialist) is interviewing Shauna Slobodian, a physiotherapist and canine rehabilitation therapist from Kingston, Ontario. Shauna has written a book dedicated to senior dogs called 'This Old Dog'. If you've got a kindle unlimited account then it is free to read!

P.S. Not sure why it's only showing up as link. I did 'insert media' and it showed the video, but then switched to a link when it posted 🙁

Oooh thank you Clare, I didn't know this book was out, I need to get my hands on it!

Let's see if this YouTube Share URL works. If so, what you need to do is copy the "Share" URL that pops up below the right corner of the video.

Thanks Clare!

I've been very fortunate to get to 'old dog' status with my last two pups (after not getting past 11 with the dogs before).  I ordered the book today and can't wait to read it!

Thanks, Karen. I feel the same way about Meg. Having lost my previous two at 10, I treasure every new grey hair. Hope you find the book helpful ❤️

Gosh!  Just saw this!  Didn't  listen to all the I terview yet. but most likely will just order the book.

Yes, "old dog starus" is the goal we all hope to reach for our pups (me, personally,  I already have🤣😆)   

My BFF mid-size  childhood dog who helped raised me made it to 17. While some kibble was part of her sustenance,  it was atleast  equal parts, if not more,  of "leftovers" from the meals of a family of five.  I'm sure the only vaccine back then would have been a rabies shot.

Some of my more "recent"  dogs (average 70 lbs) made it to twelve, fourteen, fifteen.  Even had a Bull Mastiff make it to thirteen.

Hmmmm....you brought up some nice memories I got to"revisit".  Thanks Clare.💖💖💖

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
