Just as with senior humans, senior pets often require a different spectrum of care. Additionally, certain breeds may be considered “senior” at different ages. While a Labrador Retriever might be considered senior at 6 or 7-years-old, a small terrier at the same age may be considered as just “middle-aged”. Dental disease, obesity, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases can be common in older pets. At Moreland Animal Hospital, we provide individualized counseling on how to help your senior pet age well while maintaining their health.
