  1. Senior dog now poops every time she’s in the car?

    Dog Health
    I have an 11 year old golden retriever. All her life she has been taking car rides at least a few times a year, to the groomer or the vet, vacations etc. The last two times I have taken her somewhere, she’s pooped in the car. This has never happened before in her life, even when she was a puppy...

    For those of you that have rescued a senior dog, have you ever worried about not having enough time with them once their gone?

  7. Senior dog issues: mobility, potty habits

    Dog Health
    I've got a mini American Eskimo dog named Misty that's in her golden years. I'm not sure of her exact age because I don't know how old she was when I found her (she was a stray I took home), but I've had her for 14 years, so I'd say she's at least 15 or 16. She's having some health issues these...

    My senior GSD--10 in November--has been on Kibbles 'n Bits for six years. I recently acquired him from my father and have switched him over to Bill Jac. He's been on it for about 3wks now but he's still reluctant to eat it. His bowel movements are still rather irregular and loose. He's also...
