Senior Cat Care

Senior pets are special pets! As medical advances have been made and awareness increased, our pets are living longer. With that comes the chance that more medical problems can develop. Senior pets should be seen at least once every 6-12 months and any concerns should be brought up to one of our veterinarians as soon as you are aware of a problem. During these visits, specific tests may be done, or management plans discussed, and a program can be developed specifically for your pet.

What are the stages of a senior cat’s life? How to spot signs of ageing?


Generally speaking, the age of seniority is felt to start at 8-10 years of age.

My senior cat is losing weight, what can I do?


If you notice changes in weight, appetite, or behaviour, it is recommended to schedule a consultation with one of our veterinarians for us to examine your pet. Some blood tests or x-rays will likely be recommended.

What are some common health issues?


Common issues seen in pets often include kidney disease, arthritis, diabetes, dental disease, and eye problems to name a few.
