Older dogs can be troubled by dental problems and these can affect their overall health and wellbeing. If your older dog has bad breath, discoloured teeth, plaque build up or inflamed gums, it’s worth getting things checked out.

Older dogs will still love getting out for walks, but may enjoy several shorter walks each day rather than one or two long ones.
