When does my dog become a senior?
It’s more likely that changes will start to happen on the inside as they approach their twilight years.
Just like us, dogs get older gradually - there’s no exact age that they become “senior”, but they can usually be considered to be of an older age between 5-9 years old. The age that your pet is considered to be “older” depends on what dog you have, as typically smaller dogs have a much longer lifespan than giant breeds.
Even as your dog ages, they should still be able to get the most out of life. With your usual vet check-ups, a little extra love and attention and proper nutrition, you can still enjoy the same bond with a happy, healthy pet.
