Don't let her fail.

1. Take the mongrel. Better in 2-3 generations. Their immunity is much stronger than pedigree. Plus the diversity of genes will not give problems with hereditary diseases.
2.Feed with real food. None of the food will give a better result than meat (only not chicken heads), cottage cheese, vegetables or even buckwheat.
3.Big calorie waste. Walk with her in short. A lot. Up to 4 hours a day.
4. Do not cut the dog's ears, eggs, or tail. Each anesthesia is minus 5 years of life.
Otherwise, I join the answers above.
I would recommend super premium and holistic food. They are completely balanced in proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and microelements.
Read about your dog's breed - what kind of congenital problems can it have? If it is heart problems, do heart ECHO if necessary. If the dog is large, x-ray for hip dysplasia.
MANDATORY vaccinate your dog! Puppies are vaccinated twice. Preferably not a multi-channel, but something foreign. Re-vaccinate once a year.
Treat ticks with good preparations. Not a leopard. The best option is Bravecto. Do not forget to treat worms.
Once a year, visit a therapist, take a general blood test and biochemistry to identify the problem even before its symptomatic manifestation. After 10 years, you can take it every six months.
Don't give bones, especially chicken bones. Make sure that the dog does not find them itself, so that it does not eat something inedible. In no case should the animal be given chocolate, grapes and garlic. This is poison for them.
Remember that, despite your best efforts, sometimes bad things happen. No one is immune from kidney disease, oncology, accidents. The main thing is to give your dog all the best while you can.
My dog has lived for 20 years. Of course, age depends very much on size, as a rule, small dogs live longer (and significantly). However, there are some rules to follow if you want your four-legged friend to be fashionable with you for longer. So: 1) Good nutrition. This is in both man and animal. Personally, I absolutely do not accept any animal feed, especially the cheaper mainstream Pedigree. They say that expensive food is even useful. But as for me, it's like feeding a person with Doshirak every day. For breakfast, lunch and dinner. An animal needs a complete food - from carbohydrates (both cereals and vegetables) and from protein. 2) If you are an ever-working person, and your pet is constantly at home alone, then it is better not to have a dog at all. Especially large and active. This is not a cat, whose character includes half a day's sleep :) A dog needs constant walking, and not just for 2 minutes, but a full-fledged little journey, with a ball game or frisbee. 3) What does a person do to watch his health? Goes to the doctor. With animals, the system is the same, you need to take the dog to the veterinarian, not just when the tick has already eaten so that the dog, sorry, urinates with blood. And regularly examine the animal, and take him, so to speak, for prophylaxis. 4) Raise the dog. It is to educate and train. It's like with a small child, don't give sweets and teach you to be there when you cross the road. I never understood the people who walk with the dog and it rushes around the yard, furiously cutting the path in front of the wheels of the car. And then the tears that someone knocked someone down. And the owner's wine. 5) From a practical point of view, it is very important to entrust your pet to a good veterinarian. And there are VERY few of them. Many 'professionals' won't even understand. They will say to put him to sleep. Here it is important to believe and fight to the end! Each item suits the life of a healthy person, and all the immutable rules for the development of life are also suitable for an animal. Watch, love and ensure your pet's health.
