It is National Adopt a Senior Pet Month! The whole month of November is allocated to facilitating the adoption of senior pets, a meaningful drive that we can really get behind. Senior pets are often among the sweetest, gentlest animals out there. Their constant presence is a reminder of their pure hearts, and owners would be hard-pressed to find a better companion. 

Adopting a senior pet is simply one of the best experiences in life, and we are honored to help prospective adopters make such a powerful, impactful choice. 


The Way Forward: Compassionate Senior Pet Care

senior pet careIn a sad twist of fate, our beloved pets age significantly faster than we do. While we wish we could live together forever, the reality is usually the opposite. The good news is that we can work together to keep aging animals in good health so they can live as long as possible. The way to tackle this isn’t always free of complications, but we’re here to support your efforts toward complete and compassionate senior pet care.

A Multi-Pronged Approach

Depending on your pet’s species, breed, lifestyle, and genetics, it’s a good idea to increase routine wellness exams. From age 1 to 6, we recommend yearly visits, but after the age of 6 or 7, seeing your pet two to three times a year has mighty benefits.
