Due to heavy weight arthritis sets in at old age in dogs so there r joint protectants available but before starting any thing kindly visit ur vet n let him judge is it the same problem or other nd regarding reducing weight at this age is not much possible although feeds like royal canin hv a senior dog feed available u can go for the same if it suits ur dog n try to feed him easily digestible meals
