Common Health Issues in Senior Pets and How to Manage Them

Responsible pet owners make a profound commitment to take care of their pets for life. While it may seem impossible to think about the senior years of a puppy or kitten, it’s worthwhile to pursue long-term health and wellness from their earliest months. As pets age, certain health conditions can become more prominent. We encourage owners of senior pets to maintain two wellness visits a year in order to support their pet’s changing needs, catch and treat issues early, and prevent associated problems with senior pet diseases.
