Japan to get nursing home for dogs
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TOKYO — Japan has a new nursing home for a swiftly graying population – dogs.

The country’s first nursing home for dogs comes with round-the-clock monitoring by veterinarians and a team of puppies to play with the aging pooches to help them keep fit, a pet products company said Wednesday.

Owners pay $800 a month to keep their dogs at the Soladi Care Home, which opens Friday, according to a joint release by Soladi Co. and the Endo Veterinary clinic in Tochigi, eastern Japan.

The home can accept 20 dogs at a time and will feed them specially fortified food.

Researchers say that a boom in pet ownership in Japan, coupled with better health care and a more balanced diet, has led to a surge in elderly pets in Japan.
