Elderly pet problems

There are a lot of difficulties that older pets may encounter. These include deterioration in kidney function, heart disease, thyroid disease and arthritis . We're here to provide the highest standards of care for the older generation of pets. Our nurses can take blood samples to test the vital functions of your yet and monitor any deterioration. Proper use of appropriate diets and, where necessary, medication can go a long way in restoring a pet's activity freeing them from discomfort and pain.

Too often owners may dismiss changes in their older pets simply to age. In fact some conditions that pets develop as they become older can be controlled and even completely reversed giving them a longer happier life.

Or its coat is matted or drier in appearance. These are often arthritis signs. Does he walk up and down the stairs when he used to run, maybe he avoids them altogether?
