Just like people, the medical needs of senior animals change over time, and as your cat or dog gets older they require different nutrition programs, exercise routines and are prone to a variety of new diseases.
Separating the natural aging process from emerging medical disorders becomes increasingly difficult with senior pets. Routine veterinary visits are the best way to identify, track progress and treat problems early on. Greenwich Village Animal Hospital recommends that senior pets see their veterinarian every six months.
Common Age-Related Diseases:
- Kidney and liver disease
- Intestinal disorders
- Joint and bone disease
- Breast and testicular cancer
- Cognitive difficulties
