How Do We Provide The Best Possible Care
For Dogs During Their Senior Years?

Senior Dog Care is vital to ensure longevity and good health.

The aim of the Senior Dog Care Certificate Course is to provide a reliable, factual and informed education on the specific needs of older and elderly dogs, for guardians and canine professionals.Due to improved veterinary care and better diets, dogs are now living longer. This means that owners and veterinarians, are challenged with a whole new set of age-related conditions. This guide has been written with the aim of teaching people how to care appropriately for dogs, into their elder years. It also offers careful understanding of the natural changes that old age brings for our beloved canine friends and family.

If you live with an ageing dog, this course will prove invaluable.
