So your best mate is getting a little older, a little greyer and perhaps a little slower. But we reckon they are probably a little wiser too!
One thing we know for sure is that old age isn’t a disease but as they do get older our pets are more likely to fall victim to a range of health issues. If you notice your older pet is not his or her usual self then there may be something else going on behind the scenes.
Older pets are more at risk of cancer, diabetes, joint issues, heart disease and kidney disease. But regular checks with your Fur life Vet can mean an early diagnosis and treatment to help lessen the impact to your pet and provide them with quality and longevity of life.
That is why regular vet checks are so important in managing the health of older pets.
A senior pet health check will cover:
- Mobility and joints
- Lumps and bumps
- Teeth and gums
- Blood-test (early disease indicators).
Plus you can ask your Fur Life Vet any questions you you might have about looking after your senior pet.
