Pets age differently than humans, and the lifespan of a cat versus a dog is quite different. When determining the relative age of your pet, it can be difficult to make a clear assessment on your own. For dogs, you must take into account not only actual age but size. And with cats, you’ll find they mature a great deal in early years and again later in life.
You can use the charts below to find the relative age of your pet based on its actual age and weight. If the virtual age is over 40, the threshold of senior years for most pets, we recommend that you take advantage of our Senior Work-Up Package described below.
Senior citizen pets should consider a complete senior work-up to assess their progressive health and age. We believe in emphasizing preventative medicine instead of crisis management. In other words, we would like to help your aging pet before serious problems occur. Those telltale changes in your pet – slowing down, lack of appetite, or trouble urinating – could be indicative of medical problems that require attention. Through advanced veterinary diagnostics, we can offer your pet a better quality of life during the ‘golden years’.
Questions arising regarding your pet’s health are most likely similar to those you ask about your own, especially when aging is involved. We want you to know we are here to answer those questions for you to your satisfaction so that you may be an advocate of good health in your pet’s golden years as well.
