As your best friend gets older, their medical needs change. Over time, your pet may require different exercise routines and nutrition programs to stay healthy and happy. They are also more susceptible to a variety of new diseases, including:
- Mammary and testicular cancer
- Cognitive difficulties
- Intestinal disorders
- Kidney and liver disease
- Joint and bone disease
When animals become seniors, it gets more challenging to separate their natural aging process from potential emerging medical disorders—it’s crucial to consider these changes throughout their lives. Routine veterinary visits are the best way to identify and treat problems early on.
At Lifetime Pet Wellness Center, we are committed to ensuring senior pets stay healthy and happy, especially since they need more attention and care. If you have an older pet and have any questions about proper wellness care, or if you’d like to make an appointment, schedule one online or call us at (614) 888-2100 today!
