  • Dr David Barthomomuez is brilliant. Yes I am totally biased but it is based on my experience over the last 6 wks with my mare Rivver.

Is your dog or cat over 7 years of age? If so, they are classed as senior citizens of the pet world.

Like humans, elderly cats and dogs start to slow down and may develop conditions that are subtle to notice but may affect their quality of life.  It is advised at this stage to visit your veterinarian twice yearly for a health check up. 

 

Conditions such as heart disease and arthritis are common and if picked up early can be managed and treated effectively to make your much loved pets later years more comfortable.

Signs to look out for in your dog and cats every day life:

 Coughing- Moist/ dry

Breathlessness

Collapsing/ fainting

Drinking and/ or urinating excessively

Less active

Dogs- Stiffness to rise especially in the morning and during the cold months

Cats- Jumping up high in stages e.g. onto the chair to get onto the table rather than straight onto the table

Vomiting

Loss of sight/ hearing

Smelly breath

Elderly dogs, especially terriers and boxers, can develop heart disease which may progress to heart failure. Signs can be subtle and may include a moist cough in the morning and not wanting to walk quite as far.

Elderly cats commonly develop Hyperthyroidism and Renal Failure both of which can present similarly so require blood testing to investigate.  Drinking and urinating more may be a sign or a ravenous appetite with weight loss!
