Senior Shepherd Holling

Senior Shepherd Health Issues

The German Shepherd pictured to the right is a GSRNE fellow. His name is Holling and at age 12-13 years he is experiencing some challenges that are all too common to senior dogs. In the interest of making Holling and other senior German Shepherd Dogs more comfortable in their advanced age, a new forum
was born.

All caretakers/parents and friends of senior German Shepherd Dogs are welcome to participate. Let’s exchange information and learn about experiences with our older dogs.

You don’t need to be a GSRNE member to join.

Vestibular Disease FAQ and a personal story from one of our members:  Our old dog suddenly became dazed and confused, staggering around the house, losing his balance, and wandering in circles. Our veterinarian diagnosed his problem as vestibular disease. What causes this disease and how serious is it?

Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) is a genetically linked condition where the pancreas becomes severely atrophied. It is most commonly seen in German Shepherd Dogs but increasingly occurs in other breeds as well. Wayde, one of GSRNE’s foster dogs, had EPI. He is now a poster boy for the disease.
