As animals get older, they, like us, begin to develop illnesses associated with ageing such as kidney failure, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and cancer. These usually develop gradually so that very often our pets show no warning signs until the problem is well advanced. We consider dogs to be senior from the age of 7 and cats from the age of 10. We all want our pets to live happy, good quality lives in their later years.
You know your pet better than anyone else and can alert us to any changes before they become serious. Together we can help your pet. Early detection and intervention leads to a lifetime of good health. New knowledge and treatments mean that many age-related conditions can often be treated quite easily, as long as we notice them early on. This can help add years to your pet’s life, and importantly, give them the quality of life they deserve.
