Help Them Age with Grace

Senior cat

The health and lifespan of your senior cat is dependent upon many factors, but the best way to increase the length and quality of their life is by scheduling regular veterinary exams. Since cats age faster than we do, the guidelines of the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) suggest that elder cats receive a thorough wellness exam every six months.


Common Health Issues

The medical problems that most commonly afflict senior cats tend to be protracted and develop in stages. Early detection through regular blood work and wellness exams will help ensure the continued well-being of your senior cat. Senior cats often experience health complications such as:

  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Neoplasia
  • Dehydrations
  • Weight Loss
  • Lethargy
