Elderly Pets

Our advice for your Pets as they start to get older

With age, comes the possibility of issues...

As pets get older, unfortunately more problems occur.

Once your dog or cat is over the age of 8 we advise switching them to a senior diet to ensure they get the most optimal nutrition and try and prevent problems such as weight gain as the metabolism slows down. Senior diets also help protect the liver and kidneys and other organs, which might be slowing down in older age.

Early detection of a problem is often the best time to start any treatment, so we offer 6 monthly check ups and a range of blood and urine tests to check for problems such as osteoarthritis, diabetes, liver or kidney disease.

Common symptoms of a number of conditions include:

  • More reluctant to exercise or tiring on exercise more easily
  • Increased drinking
  • Weight loss
  • Increased panting
  • Change in appeitite
  • Behaviour changes
  • Vomiting and diarrhoea

Don’t ignore any changes to your older pet’s routine. If you have any concerns about your pet, please contact us for an appointment or a check-up with a vet, or request an appointment here.
