Get help from Dr. Andrew Jones; veterinarian. He is our homeopathic vet. He has mountains of homeopathic remedies, videos he made himself with pets at his clinic, a clinic on how to do acupressure for many medical maladies such as arthritis, allergies, pain control, etc.
He was a really well known established medical “veterinarian”. Get help from Dr. Andrew Jones; veterinarian! He still is a certified vet, it’s just that he has become a more concerned veterinary doctor who believes in the more natural side of medicine even though he graduated from animal medical school and was very distinguished in his Canadian hometown and surrounding areas.
But he gave it all up to become something of a hero as far as we are concerned. He no longer prescribes medications that are not needed. He no longer performs surgeries that will do nothing. He no longer makes up a condition for a pet owner to pay for when the money is not available so they have to seek funds by borrowing or mortgaging their homes.

I was walking my dog last night, just before we had a summer storm crop up, full of screaming thunder and pounding lightening. But as we were walking, I really honed in on other people out walking their pets as well and wondered how many of them were as old as my dog.
I adopted my dog when she was about two years old; it has been about seven years ago. She is beginning to show gray in her muzzle and around her eyes; she snores very loudly now too. Remember, if you are thinking about adopting now? Seniors need love too; in some cases they make better pets than younger animals. It just depends on how much work you are ready to take on.
I sent Dr. Andrew Jones, our online vet a few questions about senior dogs to get his take on what exactly implies a “senior” and if they have special needs, what kind of special needs we might look for, and what kind of family would do well with a senior dog for a pet. He sent me back a list of varied explanations to the term “senior” and what that might imply.
Dr. Andrew Jones is a great guy; he has great information and in case you didn’t catch it earlier in my blog, he has a FREE ebook that you can download; just click here and get the book: Veterinary Secrets Revealed; there is so much information here on homeopathic medicine and home remedies in treating any dog of any age.
They say that dogs can become “seniors” as early as five years in larger dog breeds, and at about seven years for the smaller breeds. However, just because the dog is defined by age as a senior, doesn’t mean that they are ready to lay down and retire. The stigma that lends itself to being a “senior” comes from prospective owners describing a dog as “over the hill”! This usually happens when the prospective owner sees a dog and knowingly adjusts their attitude toward the dog as “over the hill” because they are looking for a younger dog to fill their needs.
Any dog that has been taken care of all of their life and has had good quality care, exceptional amounts of exercise, will remain a fairly active, happy dog with lots of playful puppy inside left to share. These dogs are in no way “over the hill” and will require the same kind and amount of love, exercise, and healthy food to remain young in the heart for as long as they can.
People tend to think that just because they see an older dog when looking to adopt, that the dog is there because he is old and was abandoned because he is unable to fulfill the needs of the owner; there must be something wrong with him. This is simply not true. Older dogs lose their homes for any number of reasons, just like young dogs lose their homes.
There are a whole lot of dogs who are expensive breeds, and were purchased as a young dog or puppy, they have been raised and were well trained, were well groomed, and taken care of, who have just lost their usefulness to their owners. The owner becomes bored with the dog, or they are just no longer a novelty to the owner. This is very sad. Kind of like divorcing your wife or husband because they are getting old and beginning to show it. Getting gray hair and wrinkles in the face pushes the other person in that relationship to look at their partner as unattractive.
When looking to adopt a dog of any age, you must think the action all the way through to the end; if possible. It is much like committing to a relationship in marriage. Taking the young with the old and the good with the bad; you don’t just throw your wife or husband out because they are getting old, do you? (Well, I guess there are a lot of people that would behave in this manner; and look for much younger to continue the rest of their life with.) I am an avid believer that karma is a “bitch” and what goes around, will come back around! “Good lucky buddy”.
There are real cases that show many older dogs are homeless because of: death of their guardian, not enough time for the dog, work schedules change or work places change, a baby is born into the family, a move to an apartment where there are no dogs allowed, the kids in the family leave for college, someone in the family suffers from allergies, there is a change in the lifestyle at home, a new spouse doesn’t like dogs, etc. The dog could be a stray that no one has ever come to claim.
If you are human and have been hurt like this, you are aware of the humility, the pain, and the sorrow that you feel deep down when passed over for a younger woman or man. When this happens, it is kicking you and your self esteem may suffer tremendously. It is very well that animals do not share these kinds of feelings. They may feel confused, and they may look lonely, but another person could fill his old owner’s shoes in a heartbeat. That dog may then be just as happy if not happier than he ever was with his old owner.
Just remember though, it is not uncommon for a dog to be dropped off at a shelter because their owner no longer wants to be responsible for them. What a waste, if you ask me. Kind of like kicking in someone’s teeth.
Older dogs have many advantages over a young dog or a puppy when it comes to placing them in a home. Dogs that you find in a rescue shelter, or adoption agency, or even s Humane Society, might have forgotten some of the things they were taught as a younger dog but this is temporary due to the amount of stress they may be feeling, or the confusion they are experiencing from being taken out of the home they knew so well.
They may be in an environment that is chaotic and helter skelter at the present and when you meet them everything is messed up. But taken out of this environment and placed back into a normal home, these dogs will remember the training that they had before coming here. House training, obedience, and even things like the tricks they were taught. Most older dogs also know what “no” means, though younger dogs and pups probably have no concept of what you may be talking about.
Puppies and young dogs love to chew, and chew on anything like furniture, pillows, shoes, belts, electric cords, books. I had a pup one time that loved my shoes and he got my favorite pair; I paid a fortune for them and there was not another pair in the state like them, but he didn’t care. There was nothing left except a little bit of the red suede strap that was supposed to go around my ankle. I was so mad, I almost took the pup back. But I remembered what puppies were supposed to be like and what they loved to do. They have very sharp little teeth and very gorgeous eyes when they are in trouble.
Older dogs have normally been socialized around other animals and especially people. They are quick to become part of the family, or part of the pet pack in the home; including cats. Older dogs also know what it takes to get love and attention from his human. Older dogs will let you finish your breakfast, coffee, and the newspaper and lie quietly next to you until you are finished; at least if they have been trained, they do. Older dogs are great companions too. They know how to ride in the car, follow on a walk or a hike. A young dog or puppy is not going to do these things.
Almost all people coming into the animal rescue or shelter are looking for a puppy. Not nearly as many go in looking for an older dog. If searching for your next companion in the senior section; you will have your pick of the bunch.
Now we all know that puppies cost a ton in vet bills. Starting out in life, most puppies will need to be spayed or neutured. They need their shots, the whole kit and kaboodle of them, up until they get a three year rabies I believe. Every single time you enter the vet’s office, it is about an $80 bill just to walk in unless you have pet insurance. With an older dog, you will make sure that before you adopt him, you will get a clean bill of health and very few things need to be taken care of at the vet for a long time. Unless you have the vet trim the nails and brush the teeth; I can’t cut my dog’s nails; she whines terribly when I do it and she scares me. Brushing the teeth is not a problem with yummy tasting paste.
Before you leave the shelter with an adopted senior dog, you will know if they have special needs. To adopt a pet with special needs will be a decision that you will make. If they have special needs, you will be expecting to pay higher vet bills. These will not be a surprise to you.
Don’t they say you cannot train an old dog new tricks? This is a fallacy as well. Old dogs learn as well, if not better and faster than a puppy or younger dog. They want to please you; this is something that the older dog already knows. The puppy or even younger dog, does not know this fact yet.
There will be an adjustment period for the older pet as well as a younger pet or puppy. Any of these dogs will have an adjustment period to come through; your older dog will likely come through it much faster and will expect less from you to get through it. Love and understanding with some patience; the elder dog will adjust faster. There is much more for the younger dog to experience when headed for an adjustment period. A puppy will be in the beginning phase of learning let alone adjusting for anything.
Remembering that there are no guarantees on the length of life of any dog, be he a puppy, a young adult or an older dog. Always make sure to get a clean bill of health when adopting any dog. Make sure however, that with an older dog there are no preexisting conditions to expect that your new found friend will keep you both in the vet’s office running those bills sky high.
Older dogs already have a name, they are used to it, and they come when you use it. They know you are talking to them when you use it to call them. Older dogs don’t normally piddle all over the floor when they become excited.
And older dogs are more prone to lay next to you when you are napping, especially careful not to annoy or wake you. However, if they have to pee or poop, you would hope that they do roust you from your slumber to let them out to do their duty. Older animals tend to come right back into the house after they are finished here, whereas, young dogs or pups might have to be chased down the street or around the back yard to get them to come back into the house so you can get back to that nap.
Remember, if you are thinking about adopting, seniors need love too! I am not speaking of senior citizens as in the human kind, but of our senior canine friends. Senior canines make wonderful pets and friends for our senior citizens and senior communities as well. Senior companions are most likely to be one of the best investments for an elderly parent who needs companionship in the house where they live, someone to watch over them is something that an older dog can be taught to do; one of those new tricks even! You might be surprised at what that old dog knows!
