How to Care for Senior Pets

Our dogs and cats have changing physical and mental needs when they are getting old. Here are some simple tips advised by our veterinarian. With these tips, you can help your senior pet stay healthy, happy, and live a longer life.

What is a senior pet?

As strange as it may seem to us, our four-legged friend is considered senior when they reach 7 years of age.

What should we look out for in our senior pets?

As our pets get older, they are more prone to kidney and liver issues as well as arthritis. The most common kidney disease signs are drinking a lot and urinating a lot. You may also notice their appetite starts to decrease and lose weight. With liver issues, they may have decreased appetite and vomit. If you notice any of these signs it is important to bring them into the clinic for a medical examination and blood test. This will give us vital details on their health.

Any weight gain or loss is abnormal if there has been no change to their food and exercise level.

Alarm bells should be ringing if you find any of the below symptoms:

If you find an unknown lump on your pet, please bring them to the vet immediately.
