Just keep this in mind, excessive impacts on joints will only increase risk. This doesn't guarantee any problems and complete abstinence won't completely guarantee no problems. As long as you maintain the slow easy use of stairs, you reduce risks.

The fully grown dog is less vulnerable to an extent, naturally old dogs have their own problems.
