Old pet considerations:
Below are some things to consider as your pet is getting older. Many of these conditions are progressive. The earlier a problem is detected, the better it can be managed which is likely to improve longevity and quality of life.
DIET: With age, the nutritional requirements of your pet will change. More support will be needed for ageing organs and joints
SLOWING DOWN: Due to pain and stiffness caused by arthritis or a poor functioning heart.
SMELLY BREATH: Due to peridonatal disease. This is because of plaque build up leading to sore gums and a painful mouth
LUMPS AND BUMPS: Swellings and bumps are more common with age and most turn out to be nothing to worry about but unfortunately some can turn out to be serious cancers
