Welcome to your August Newsletter
Winter is harder on older pets; the cold gets into their bones and it’s harder to get around. But it is important to understand that geriatric and senior pets are not the same and need to be treated differently.
Geriatric pets are classified as dogs older than 10 years, and cats above 14. It is hard for owners to pluck up the courage and bring these pets to the Veterinary Hospital – you realise your pet is getting on in age and fear what a checkup may reveal. But we can offer so much help to make the golden years of your pets’ life enjoyable and pain free. Our goal is aligned with yours; we realise how emotional it can be and what a valuable family member your pet is. Put your fears to rest and come and talk to our caring professionals.
