Have you noticed that dogs are living longer today? They are like us; they do not stay young forever and are living longer due to better medical care and nutrition. Every stage of life has its rewards, joys, pleasures and drawbacks. Dogs continue to have fewer sudden causes of death. They are certainly living longer than nature has intended. There are more and more senior dogs today!
Living in the wild, dog's life expectancy would depend upon avoiding injury, illness and finding a supply of food. Modern dogs are living longer lives and you must prepare for this eventual reality. Provide an environment for your maturing dog that ensures a long, healthy and happy life span.
Middle age for the average dog is between 5 and 9 years of age. This is a time where your dog is busy with life and does not have any particular mental or physical issues. Like humans, at the end of this middle age stage, they start feeling and acting their age.
Physical and functional changes can occur throughout the body. These alterations can affect hearing, vision, stamina and general activity. The brain size is reduced. Canine Alzheimer speeds up the deterioration process.
Oldness affects all breeds and dogs in various ways. As with humans, some dog breeds age better than others. At the age of 10, some dogs do not have noticeable mental or physical issues. Many others dogs at the same age have developed organ, loss of sense and orthopedic failures.
Growing old is controlled by a biological genetic clock located in the brain. This triggers the controls of the body's hormone system. Over time, dogs are like us...wise but more childish. Disorientation, house training and sleep modifications...are just a few of the old age indicators.
The aging process for our senior dogs, gives us some curious and interesting phenomenons. Older neutered females become more aggressive while neutered aging males become less aggressive as they grow older.
You can help your senior dog and prolong its life expectancy by slowing down the senility process. Massaging your dog can improve circulation and loosen stiff joints. A well-balanced meal with increase amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants will benefit your maturing dog. Be prepared as your dog enters the "golden years"...
A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.
I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image.
