As your dog ages, it is normal to expect he or she will undergo a number of changes. Assisi Animal health reveals four signs of declining mobility in dogs.
1. Exhibits general stiffness/joint pain. There are a number of factors that could result in your dog having stiff and/or painful joints. Arthritis, hip or elbow dysplasia, carrying too much weight, muscle loss or back problems could cause him or her to do less exploring. Make sure your dog sees a vet regularly to make sure the decline in mobility is due to normal aging and not disease.
2. Decreased Appetite. One of the most readily apparent symptoms of pain in dogs, which leads to decreased mobility, is loss of appetite. It is an easy symptom for pet owners to notice, and is often accompanied by the animal lying down while eating.
3. Demonstrates decreased lung capacity. During the aging process, lungs also lose their elasticity. The ability of the lungs to oxygenate the blood may also decrease, causing him or her to tire more easily and thus be less mobile.
4. Displays decreased heart function. The heart is another organ that is less efficient as a dog ages. It does not pump as quickly, some of its valves may have lost their elasticity. Again, it is important to have your dog examined by a vet to determine if medication is necessary, or if it a normal part of the aging process.
