The Golden Years
The most common problem in aging pets is arthritis; like people, their joints age and begin to ache. This causes them to be less active. At the same time, pet’s digestive tracts may become less efficient and absorb fewer nutrients. If pets continue to eat the same food they did when they were younger while being less active, many will become over-weight. Many older pets also lose some, if not all, of their teeth. In addition, they may develop skin or fur problems become more prone to illness and may lose the ability to regulate their own body temperature.
Unfortunately, most pet owners with senior pets don’t know that there are products available to help.
