November is senior pet awareness month!
October 30th 2017
Sometimes an older animal can develop new behaviours at home. Some animals can become more aggressive. Some cats will start relieving themselves outside their litter boxes, and some dogs can start going to the bathroom in the house. Some cats will start meowing during the night. Some dogs will become more fearful with strangers. Most of the time, these new behaviours are due to medical problems, such as arthritis, eyesight and hearing difficulties, incontinence, and cognitive dysfunction, to name a few. Watch for changes in your pet and don’t hesitate to have him examined by your veterinarian. Early detection and appropriate care can significantly improve quality of live and longevity for your pet!
