Terre Haute Tribune Star

Cats and dogs usually begin to show visible signs of aging at around 7 to 12 years of age. Pets age according to their genetics, diet and environmental conditions. As they get older, they become susceptible to conditions such as kidney and heart disease and obesity. An aging pet changes physically making it necessary to be aware of changing dietary needs. If your senior pet is healthy, your veterinarian should examine him at least twice annually. Detecting problems at the earliest stages will help ensure a quicker recovery.Itâs cheaper to help prevent these diseases with good diets than to treat the disease after itâs progressed.
