Allergies in Senior Dogsby Ann-Marie Fleming

01 October, 2020

Fall is officially here and that means allergy season is finally behind us. No more itchy eyes, runny noses or constant sneezing for another year — and we’re not just talking about your own symptoms. Your senior dog can have allergies, too, and it can cause discomfort for your pup just like it can for you.

How Bamboo Inspired the Bamboo Blockerby Ann-Marie Fleming

08 July, 2020

Many of you already know a bit about Bamboo (17 yrs) who I rescued in January of 2019 through K9 Spirit Organization, but what you may not know is that he has cognitive issues also referred to as dog dementia. Bamboo was this way when I adopted him so it has always just felt like part of his quirky personality, however it is not without its challenges.

How to Teach Your Senior Dog to Use a Couch or Bed Rampby Ann-Marie Fleming

01 June, 2020

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who refuse to let their dogs on the couch or bed, and those who can’t resist those extra snuggles. At Dog Quality, we don’t think there’s anything wrong with letting your dog climb up for a little cuddle — in fact, we encourage it! But for senior dogs, getting up on the couch or bed without help can be easier said than done.

Social Distancing With Senior Dogs During COVID-19by Ann-Marie Fleming

30 March, 2020

The current COVID-19 situation has the whole world on edge. That is, except for one group that’s happier than ever to have everyone staying home. Our dogs are benefiting in a big way from social distancing protocols, getting to spend more time with their beloved owners at home every day. But you might be wondering if you can still go outside for walks with your senior dog during these crazy times. Is it safe to visit the dog park or have playdates with doggie friends?

The Power of Touch for Senior Dogsby Ann-Marie Fleming

05 February, 2020

Touch has a significant impact on our lives. A hug can bring light to an otherwise dark day. Holding hands with a loved one can give you comfort. A massage can help to relieve stress from your everyday life. Touch has a powerful effect on our wellbeing and how we connect to other people — and it can have just as big an impact on senior dogs.

 

Our Best Tips for Introducing a New Dog to Your Senior Pupby Ann-Marie Fleming

10 January, 2020

So you’ve decided to adopt another dog — congratulations! At Dog Quality, we believe adoption is a beautiful way to save the life of a dog in need of any age. We also know how exciting it is to bring a new fur baby into the family, but if you already have a senior dog at home, introducing your new pup into the home could take a little more time and patience than you think.

Estate Planning for Pet Parentsby Ann-Marie Fleming

02 December, 2019

As hard as it is, every dog parent knows that their beloved pet will one day no longer be with them. But we rarely think about the possibility that our pets might outlive us. No one wants to think about leaving their pets behind, but the reality is that our dogs are living longer. It’s important to plan ahead for the worst to give your pet the best possible future. This is even more important for the parents of senior dogs and animals. Given their additional challenges and needs, you’ll need to be more diligent about pet estate planning in order to protect them.
