Tips to care for an older dog.

Since Jess’s eyesight has become worse, we have had to adapt in a number of ways in order to help her in everyday life.

The first thing we did was buy her a new bed as had started to fall into the one she already had, as it was a hard bed with quite high sides. The new bed is soft and very low. This also helps her be more comfortable with her arthritis.

She only has some central vision so sometimes walks into door frames so we have smeared lemon juice on them and this helps.

We try and keep to routine and keep her food, water and bed in the same place. We avoid moving any furniture.
