We often forget that our pets age seven times quicker than we do, but as our pets grow older they become increasingly prone to age-related diseases. It’s important to know of and keep an eye out for some key signs of ageing, as they can often be subtle. We’ve put together a list of common signs for you to watch out for below.
Common signs of an ageing pet
- Sleeping more
- Change in appetite
- Difficulty rising or walking, or going to the toilet
- Change in bahaviour
- Incresed urination
- Lumps or bumps on skin
- Bad breath
If you can detect health issues early it can help prolong your pets’ life and increase their quality of life. Regular health exams become very important as your pet ages as diseases such as cancer, arthritis, liver failure, heart disease, poor kidney function or obesity can be detected early.

A senior pet health check will cover:
- Mobility and joints
- Lumps and bumps
