Why are senior veterinary visits important?
Senior cats are living healthier, longer lives due to advances in veterinary medicine and nutrition. As our feline friends age, they require special care and attention. Common conditions our senior cats may encounter include arthritis, chronic kidney disease, dental issues, heart disease, high thyroid, cognitive decline, and others. Routine veterinary visits can help to detect age-related diseases before they become advanced and can help improve the chances of a longer and a healthier life.
What changes should I look out for that may indicate disease in an aging cat?
If you have noticed any of these signs, please discuss them with your veterinarian: weight loss, decreased appetite, weight gain, increase in thirst or urination, changes in behavior, changes in activity, difficulty in jumping or running, vomiting or other abnormalities. However, cats may not always show obvious signs of disease, which is why it is so important to have them evaluated regularly.
What can I do to ensure comfort and health as my pet ages?
Because cats age at a faster rate than humans, a physical exam is recommended every 6 months for every cat over the age of 9 years. Physical examinations and senior labwork are important as they can help detect disease in early stages when it is easier to treat.
