AAHA Senior Care Guidelines

I was doing some digging around the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) website in connection with another thread and found something that might be helpful to many of us with our senior dogs--Senior Care Guidelines.
Keep this PDF handy and review it before your senior dog's next veterinary exam, particularly if your dog's veterinary clinic isn't a AAHA member (most are not), so you can ask questions, ask the vet to perform certain tests and make sure your senior gets the best preventive exam possible.

Here is the pdf:

I'm printing this out and I'm going to go through it and "pre-exam" Toby before his next wellness appointment, just so I can see if there is anything that looks odd or I should bring up at the appointment. I want to be pro-active and catch anything early on and this article gives me a very good idea of what I should be looking for (from a layman's perspective that is).

Thank you for this. I found this passage especially thought provoking in terms of what our dogs need from us and when to let go: "The five freedoms include freedom from hunger and thirst; freedom from physical and thermal discomfort; freedom from pain, injury, and disease; freedom from fear and distress; and the freedom to express normal behavior."

With these as criteria for quality of life, I suspect that most of us put our beloved companions through too much.
