Tips to Keep Your Senior Dog Healthy
As our beloved furry companions age, their health and well-being become even more important to us. Our Founder and CEO, Katie McCarron, started Portland Pet Food Company in 2014 to care for a senior poodle whose health was in decline, and since then, we've been passionate about increasing the health and wellbeing of senior dogs everywhere! Just like humans, senior dogs need extra care and attention to lead happy and healthy lives in their golden years.
From diet to exercise, here are some essential tips to ensure your senior dog enjoys their best life possible.
Eating healthy, fresh foods
Exercise and mental stimulation
Regular vet check-ups
Comfort and TLC

Eating Healthy, Fresh Food
Exercise and Mental Stimulation
Keeping your senior dog active is crucial for maintaining their physical and mental well-being. However, “active” can mean something very different to each dog—tailor their exercise routine to suit their age and fitness level. Short, gentle walks or playtime in the yard are excellent options. Engage them with puzzle toys or interactive games to stimulate their minds and keep their cognitive abilities sharp.
Comfort and TLC
Caring for your senior dog requires a combination of love, nutrition, exercise, and regular veterinary care. Small changes such as incorporating fresh, nutrient-rich foods like Portland Pet Food Company's Homestyle Dog Meals can significantly contribute to their overall health and happiness. Embrace these senior years with open arms and create lasting memories filled with joy, love, and care. Together, you and your senior dog can make the most of this special chapter in their life journey.
