Our 13yr. old GSDs Health Issues
I have a wonderful Shepherd that is 13yrs. old. He is the best companion dog that my wife and I could ever have. His Health is good for an older dog, but he is starting to fall when our other pup gets playful with him, and he has a hard time walking, especially in cold weather.
His eyes are starting to get glazed over also. My wife told me the other day that in the last few months he is starting to whimper a little when he lays down.
I am currently in Iraq and I really hate that I dont get to see him. My question is should we have a vet look over him and have some X-rays taken to see if anything can be done? We give him supplements and he is not overweight.
I do not want to see him suffer.He is such a proud and wonderful part of our family. What should we do? Thanks.
