Senior Pets

Sure, I love a cute puppy and kitten. Who doesn’t? But my real passion is senior pets. The “Oldies but Goodies.” The grey-muzzled, cloudy-eyed dogs. The flakey-haired cats. Seniors are smart – they’ve been around and know how to get what they want. They also have unique needs (ie – sometimes forgetting what it is that they want!).  Older animals also have the most distinctive personalities, and often become more needy or even demanding with age.

It’s about more than just a vet visit. It’s knowing what to look for and tell your veterinarian. It’s making minor adjustments at home to help your senior dog or cat live happier. It takes a village to keep these older animals thriving sometimes, but it is so worth it!
