Like humans, pets tend to slow down as they age. Where at one time, your pup may have been keen on a fast-paced run, he or she now prefers the couch to the leash.
Although it’s natural for your senior pet to lose some interest in or ability to participate in certain forms of exercise, keeping your senior pet active still requires regular effort to support their health and well being.
Senior Pet Wellness: Your First Step Toward Optimal Health
Before creating your senior pet’s exercise plan, we encourage you to come in and see us for some recommendations. Our senior wellness program includes an assessment of your pet’s current health and ability, which is essential to any appropriate exercise program.
Many seniors also require special diets to help them maintain a healthy weight. Our team is happy to discuss any necessary changes and help you explore some effective, age-appropriate exercises you can enjoy together.
