Senior Pets are at risk of cancer, diabetes, joint problems, as well as heart, kidney, and liver diseases. Exercise can help senior pets maintain better health and can even prevent certain illnesses.

They also require different veterinary care than younger pets. Talk to your vet about caring for your senior pet.

Poor dental care leads to a higher risk of diseases, so practice home dental care and get professional cleanings. There are special diet and nutrition needs to keep in mind as your pet ages. Your vet can help you learn more.

Taking special care of your senior pet can grant you extra years with your loved one! Talk to your vet today!
