Celebrate your pet's life during Senior Month
Let's celebrate and honour our wonderful senior patients.
November is Senior Month at the vet clinic, where we like to celebrate and honour our wonderful senior patients.
Generally, cats and dogs are considered a “senior” around seven to eight years of age. Larger breed dogs tend to have shorter lifespans compared to smaller breeds, so they are sometimes considered a senior by five to six years of age.
Once our furry friends become seniors, yearly wellness checks are important to identify, monitor and treat any issues that may arise due to advancing age. Age-related diseases can arise subtly, and their symptoms may be easy to miss.
Regular vet visits can help set a baseline for what is normal for your pet, which makes it easier for owners to notice when something has changed.
