Owning a dog comes with a lot of responsibilities. You have to make sure that the dog is properly fed, that it performs the necessary exercising routines, and leads an overall healthy and happy life. However, at times, it can be difficult to do so when a dog gets sick. This is more common than people believe once a dog reaches a certain age.
Old age tends to trigger a lot of health problems in animals, especially in dogs and cats. A dog that has reached a 5 years lifespan is more likely to suffer from inflammatory complications like joint pain and inflammation and general arthritis and even cancer. These are conditions that not only cause pain but reduce their overall mobility.
