Webinar Description:

Everyone wants their dog to live a long and as healthy a life as possible. One of the advantages of K9 Nose Work® and nose/scent work generally, is that it is an activity and sport in which even senior dogs can participate as long as they remain happy, healthy and active.

In this webinar, noted sports medicine veterinarian Dr. Chris Zink discusses how you can keep your senior dog fit and healthy well into their teens. She will cover topics such as: signs of aging in senior and geriatric dogs, why you shouldn’t feed your dog senior foods, and how exercise can increase your older dog’s quality of life and longevity.

Join us for a practical, evidence-based event to which your dog will give you a “two dew claws up!”
