Exclamation Section in Senior dogs and related Questions

Could you create a section on senior dogs and related questions and problems?
Thinking about end of life problems, health care etc.

Since we have one for puppies it kind of makes sense, doesn't it?
What do other folks think?

I think it's a good idea... a senior dog's issues often differ from those of a younger adult just as much as those of puppies do.

I think it's a fantastic idea . Caring for a senior pet can be just as much work (if not more) as caring for a puppy. Sharing info on supplements, meds, as well as things like wraps, diapers, slings, ramps, steps - I know I sure could use some people! Then there is the whole emotional side of things - knowing when to let go, supporting each other after the decision has been made, etc. Maybe a senior dog photo contest .

I agree... I have one senior since Tasha is now 9.. and feliz is 6 next year she'd be one. I know I have done research and how to make things better for Tashis and symptoms of elderly behaviors and so on. Granted she hasnt shown any yet but it would be very nice to take part of other peoples experiences before it gets there.

sounds good to me... as senior issues are often addressed different than younger dogs
