Firefly just turned 7, and I myself don't consider this "senior", but my Sheltie is no spring chicken. She is whitening a bit around the face, and any rough housing or hard play leaves her a bit stiff, and she favors her right leg.
Should I start giving her supplements? Like a daily multi vitamin and glucosamine and chondroiton? I don't want her to have any arthritis pains or stiffness, and was wondering if some supplements would help.
Sorry for these kinds of questions. Fly was MY first ever dog, even though my family has had pets all throughout my life. She was and is my personal fur baby, and we have grown up together.
I just want the ascension into her older years to be as fun and comfortable as her younger ones. Any "senior" tips would be appreciated.
