About Tim

Hello everyone, and welcome to My Older Dog website.

As a lifetime dog owner…. I know the joy of welcoming furry friends into the family.   It’s amazing to experience the genuine love and companionship they give unconditionally.

Just a quick little story about Ellie Mae

Ellie Mae – sweetest dog on Earth!

I currently live in Virginia with my family on a small hobby farm with horses, chickens, cats, and of course….dogs. Our beloved older yellow lab, Ellie Mae…. started having health issues about two years ago.

Her declining health, combined with some conflicting feedback from her vets… prompted me to seek change.    I wanted to explore more information on older dog nutrition…, supplements…. exercise…. and alternative treatments for some of her ailments.

I had such a positive response from changing both my mindset…as well as her supplements and nutrition….that I wanted share some things I learned along the way.

Also, let me say that I no way advocate avoiding veterinary care.

I am not qualified to offer animal medical advice.   I hope you understand that my perspective on this website is only offered as friendly observations.  Reviews and opinions are based on my personal research and experiences.

Hey you – Pack Leader!

I sincerely believe that when we bring new companions into “our pack”…..we form social relationships with them. Often these bonds turn into lifelong commitments.

When a cherished pet suffers a decline in health…. it can be heartbreaking, stressful, and expensive.

My goal is to provide as much positive Information as possible.   I hope to help you discover new options that may improve the quality of life for your dog.

Let’s explore a healthier life for your dog!

  1. Tim,
    Last two dogs that I had lived into their teens. Watching their health decline is very depressing. Your information on what will make them comfortable and willing to keep going everyone should read this. Keep up the good work and I will return and look at what information you have added in the future, I do not have a dog at this time.

    1. Thank you John for spending time visiting. You hit the nail on the head, it’s tough to witness the failing health of a beloved pet. Often there is a sense of helplessness (for us) that comes with these old dog ailments…and they can’t talk to tell us what’s bothering them. The more info and experiences we can share with each other helps. Great to see you here! Tim

  2. Hi Tim,

    I haven’t got a dog myself, but many friends have and i’m sure they’d welcome the info you’ve gathered here. Anything that helps an owner care for their pet is great and i’ll be sure to pass on your blog to anyone I think might benefit.
