Ramp it up
Literally. If your dog loves to share the bed but jumping up has become a challenge, look into getting a set of soft doggy stairs or a ramp to help them up with ease. If your house’s stairs are shorter or less steep, try placing a sturdy wood board on the side of the staircase to create an inexpensive ramp. Elevating food and water bowls will also help prevent them from bending uncomfortably or losing their balance during meals or drinking.
So if you’re thinking of adopting a senior pet, we’re rooting for you all the way. No matter what challenges you and your new best friend may face together, having a good plan (and a few super-comfy beds) in place will not only keep your pet healthy, but happy, too, so that you can share many more adventures to come.
