We wish to keep our pets healthy and happy for as long as possible and this can be achieved through exercise, a healthy diet, and regular veterinary check ups. Aging changes such as arthritis, vision, and hearing losses are normal and cannot be prevented. Many changes related to disease, however, can be managed and treated successfully if detected early.
Dietary changes are in order for dogs and cats over 7 years of age. There are many “Senior Diets” on the market and it is likely the brand of food your pet eats has one available.
