Choosing to Make a Senior Pet Comfortable

We always strive to keep our pets as healthy as possible for as long as possible. I’ve had cats most of my life and most live to a very old age. Several of my cats had kidney disease. This is very common in cats and will usually eventually end their lives. Kidney disease as well as others are not curable but can be managed to a point. Maintenance included frequent visits to the vet, uncomfortable tests and lots of medications. If you are going through this now, you will probably come to a point where you choose to make the remaining days of your pets life comfortable rather then have them go through all of the frequent vet visits, tests and uncomfortable procedures. So what guidelines should you follow? I would choose to make the pet as comfortable as possible as long as he/she is not suffering and as long as they’re eating and not in any pain.

This is a difficult decision to make and varies from owner to owner.

Remember, pets are family.
