Senior Pets/Health Tips V2

If you have a senior pet, you know the joys of having a longtime, faithful companion. But you also know that keeping your canine or feline friend healthy and comfortable takes a bit more effort.

To ensure your senior pet’s well-being, XXXXX encourages you to bring your pet in for exams and blood tests twice per year. This way, we can track how your pet is aging, and we’ll have better chances to catch any underlying diseases before they’re big problems.

Here are some more ways you can improve your senior pet’s quality of life:

  • Many older pets have weaker immune systems, so it’s crucial that you continue to administer parasite preventatives to keep nasty pests (and the diseases they pass along) away.
  • If your pet is having trouble getting around, you may want to help him avoid things like stairs by providing ramps or moving beds, food and litter boxes to more accessible areas of your home.
  • Ask your veterinarian about your pet’s food. Slower pets don’t need as many calories, so make sure your pet’s food is right for his current lifestyle and health status.
  • Brush your pet’s teeth! Dental disease is always a threat to our pets’ health and comfort, and it’s particularly tough on older pets.
