This study on aspect of the prevalence of disease in geriatric (10 years old) dogs was undertaken in Veterinary College Hospital Anand. A total of 156 geriatric dogs including 82 male and 74 female were selected. Among all, prevalence of gastrointestinal problems (16.66%) was higher followed by wound (14.10%), eye problems (14.10 %) and tumour (12.17%). The prevalence rate of ear infection, dental problem, respiratory infection, behavior abnormalities, renal problems and liver problems were 4.48 %, 7.6%, 5.12%, 7.06%, 3.84% and 4.48% respectively.
