The key to keeping your best friend happy and healthy in their senior years is early detection and prevention. Visit your veterinarian for your pet’s senior health care exam at least every six months to monitor any changes in your pet’s health. Remember pets are classified as senior from 7 years of age and are ageing 7 times faster than humans which means they require more frequent health checks to ensure they are keeping well and comfortable.
You can play an important role in the healthcare of your pet by being on the lookout for changes in behaviour and appearance. Make sure you groom your pet weekly and check for any sores, lumps and smells. If you notice any changes, please contact our friendly healthcare team for further advice. Early detection can play a critical role in the continued health and wellbeing of your senior pet.
