Do senior pets still need to go to the vet?
Yes! We recommend that they come in for a complete checkup at least twice per year. Senior pets are more prone to illness and injury. Regular checkups help us get ahead of any underlying problems. This will ultimately save you time and money in the face of any health issues your pet may develop.
What can I do to help my senior pet at home?
In general, we recommend “playing it by ear.” Pay attention to how your pet reacts to certain activities or environments. For example, going on long hikes may no longer be comfortable for them. Instead, you can try lower impact activities like swimming or more accessible walks on level ground. They may also be more prone to bruising or injury. It may be a good idea to install padding or step stools in certain areas of your home to help them get around.
