Companion Animal Hospital Senior Pet Care: It’s All About Specialization
The right health care for your elderly pet can add many strong and active years to their life. At Companion Animal Hospital, we offer health care routines tailored especially for mature cats and dogs and specialized to individual needs.
Whether you and your companion have grown up together or you’ve recently acquired an aging pet, caring for a senior cat or dog can be an amazing experience. However, just like puppies and kittens, senior pets also have unique needs and considerations.
While every animal is different, most cats are considered senior at the age of 10, and most dogs are termed senior around age 7. Common problems to check for include:
- Dental disease
- Kidney disease
