I was also more careful with them during extreme weather as they tended to tire more quickly in the heat (not that they would want/let you know!) and they were less happy to be out in the very cold weather as long.

We haven't seen pictures of your pups in a long time!! Do you have any to share?
Mine hasn't said anything about more often, just the senior panel, which is more comprehensive I guess. They did say knowing kidney and liver function cam be very important for an older dog.

I do give fish oil daily, I give it to all the dogs.

I try to make certain they don't over do it as well. Really haven't seemed to slow down but I know dogs might not always show it, so I watch them carefully if they are exercising in the heat or anything.

I will post up some pics a little later, I know it's been forever. My older dogs are between 8-12 years old now. A few have passed since I've posted.

I HAVE BEEN KISSED!! thanks sheplovr
