As your dog starts to age, it is important to start paying out more attention to their health wishes. As with humans, as dogs age their bodies begin to wear down, and they can develop issues with their joints, teeth, gums, vision, hearing, and so on. With correct care many of those issues can be simply treated, keeping your dog cheerful and comfy through his or her "golden years".

Petgensys, LLC products are designed to help all dogs, from puppy through to senior. Scientists at Petgensys have spent many years studying the effects of age, injury, and everyday living on the cellular mechanism underlying inflammation related diseases.
Like humans, as our four-legged friends age, it is the overreaction of the immune system which can cause a myriad of complications. Every year we celebrate another candle on our birthday cake, and that's one year closer to being "old". However, for your pet each birthday makes them 4, 5, even 7 years older by human standards. More importantly, the larger your pet is the sooner they reach that senior age.
Petgensys, LLC believes that no matter what the age of your pet, proper diet, regular exercise and routine medical checkups are important in keeping them healthy into their senior years. The fact that our pets age more rapidly than we do, also means that diseases and other health problems can develop more rapidly as well. Your pet’s best defense against health problems associated with aging are awareness and prevention. By catching warning signs of potential age related illness early on, we can help ensure that your pet will make a smooth transition from their adult years into their senior years and will lead a rich and full life as they grow older.
Using Petgensys, LLC products as directed along with giving your best friend(s) a proper diet coupled with regular exercise will help to give your pet the best possible quality of life.
The scientific and medical community has recognized that the low-grade inflammation observed with obesity is associated with the development of a wide range of downstream complications. Furthermore, because of the increased weight strain on joints, those who suffer from obesity have a greater chance of developing osteoarthritis.
- Oral Hygiene
A dog cannot be healthy without oral health. Proper nutrition and effective oral hygiene are necessary components of oral health. Periodontal is a significant disease that has local and systemic ramifications that can seriously compromise your dog’s health. Research demonstrates that effective plaque control prevents gingivitis which helps to prevent inflammation of the gums.
All pets need exercise. With age, pets exercise needs change, however there is no substitute for controlling your dog’s weight through a proper veterinarian approved diet and exercise regiment. Numerous studies demonstrate that weight loss in obese dogs with hip osteoarthritis as a result of proper and regular exercise substantially improves their gait and their mobility. Physical activity has the potential to significantly influence the healing process in inflamed joints by enhancing transport of nutrients from the blood into the joint tissues where they can be used. Mechanical stress from too much exercise may also unbalance the cartilage repair process and impair physical function.
A great deal of research suggests that natural supplements added to a diet can assist in proper growth and development, including helping to maintain a properly functioning immune system. As much as we’d like to believe, our dogs cannot tell us how they are feeling and supplements have proven to be essential to support the immune system to fight off disease. Vitamin supplements coupled with a nutritional diet and regular exercise can benefit dogs greatly.
