The geriatric pet

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

When your geriatric cat 0r d0g enters the “golden age of life,” he might slow down but his mind is still active.  To help your senior pet stay happy and active, spend more time, not less doing the things he always enjoyed. Cats might not play as vigorously but any activity with you would be a treat. Grooming is always appreciated too. My cat Mollie is almost 13 and she loves to be brushed everyday. It’s something that she actually looks forward to. The sound of your voice is also comforting to an older pet. Keep giving dogs the chance to socialize. Just a slow walk in the park or an organized activity will do.  Some senior pets may even teach a younger pet some of the wisdom that they learned along the way.

Remember, your pets count!
