We're focusing on SENIOR PET CARE during March & April.

Just like in people, our pets go through ageing stages in their lives, and just like us health problems change as they age.

Humans are considered middle-aged from around 42-45 years old, which is when most senior health screening programmes start, but are not considered senior until 56-60 years old.  Dogs and cats are generally considered to start their senior years at around 8 years of age, when physiological changes of aging can be detected in brain function, liver function, and other areas. In very large breeds of dog, this can start at 1-2 years younger.  

As animals age, it is important that they have more frequent and more extensive examinations, combined with regular testing (blood, urine, xray, ECG etc). read more
