“Old Dogs Rule!”

The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) recently ran the educational podcast series “Old Dogs Rule,” a two month celebration of our great old dogs packed with information about how to keep them going strong for years to come.

 

Podcast topics included:

 

Hospice Care / End of Life Care For Dogs Age Related Cardiovascular Disease

 

More information about the podcast series is available here.

 

Senior and geriatric dogs need specialized care and the AKC Canine Health Foundation's (CHF) Senior Dog Health and Wellness program area will provide funding for education and research.

 

Beginning in 2015, CHF will award grants to researchers who aim to understand how to strengthen the aging dog's immune system, prevent and/or manage health problems such as degenerative cardiac disease or kidney disease, and how aging dogs can retain their cognitive function to not just live longer, but live well.
