No vaccines. It will kill him or her. Good diet--as much raw as possible. Make half wilted (fried in a little coconut oil) fresh cut up kale one of the meals of the day. First or second time if u think the dog may not eat it, sprinkle tad of parmeson. That tip is even from a nutritionist. Warm, soft bed. Exercise a must but not to a point of being sore. Borax carpets for fleas. NO chemicals please. Lots of love and gentleness. No stress. See my former posts if dog has cataracts. No surgery but cataracts can be removed simply. Old dogs are the best of the best. Tried and true.

Hello, what kind of dog? I can start by saying take him or her to the vet for a full check-up, cure what ails him or her and give all the love you have in your heart to this wonderful animal that is very old, make them feel young and play alot, massage when they are sleeping, always let them know you are there.
