Bichon Frise: Signs of Aging


Since aging Bichon Frises experience the same ailments as we do when we grow older youíll probably start recognizing some external changes first. You may start to notice that your petís coat is losing some of its youthful lustrous sheen and his/her nails are becoming more brittle. Your little doggy may be slowing down and moving more stiffly too. Make sure that any noticeable change in habits or behavior is due to aging and that youíre not overlooking a condition needing treatment.

Your Bichon Frise may be experiencing other changes due to aging that may be harder to recognize too. These can include; loss of hearing and vision, arthritis, diabetes, kidney problems and breathing difficulties. Aging Bichons are especially vulnerable to allergies, bladder stones, pancreatitis, luxating patellas (weak knee joints), eye disease, collapsing trachea and diseases of the endocrine system.

To monitor and maintain your Bichon Friseís health schedule yearly veterinarian exams. This may include blood tests or x-rays that will help your vet to evaluate how well your dog is doing internally. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your dog exhibits any signs or symptoms of concern in between visits.
