A Vet's tips for aging Pets

Posted by on

Age is not a disease and don't assume pain or loss of energy is normal just because your dog is old.  As your pet gets older, keep an eye on the following:

Teeth:  For dogs 9 to 10 years old is the time to get teeth in order, because tooth decay becomes more severe and anesthesia riskier.

Blood:  Regular blood work can alert your veterinarian to otherwise invisible ailments for which early detection can prevent long-term problems.  Kidney and throid problems are particular concerns for cat owners.

Joints:  If you see changes in how your pet takes the stairs, talk to a veterinarian about possib le arthritis treatments.

Body and Soul:  Don't assume that because they are older, they don't need as much exercise or attention.  Regular physical and mental activity can hold off arthritis and dementia and can strenghten your bond.
