Senior Pets: 12 Steps to Healthy Aging

I love looking at photos of little kids with a new dog or cat and then seeing a photo of the same pair perhaps 10 or more years later. By then, the child has become a young adult, of course; the pet, on the other hand, has moved into the category of the elderly, as pets go.

Our pets are clearly living longer – e.g., since 1930, the average life expectancy of cats has nearly doubled — but they fall into the “geriatric” category all too quickly. Cats and small dogs are generally considered old by the age of 7, larger dogs by the age of 6. From then on, they face the possibility of a number of debilitating and even potentially fatal diseases.

None of us like to think of our pets as “old,” but it behooves us to be aware of changes in behavior or appearance that can signal trouble. Caught early on, many things are very treatable. Being alert and proactive can mean the difference between healthy aging and debilitating conditions.
