Senior pets can be both a joy and a challenge. Older pets have the wisdom of age and can develop a special relationship with humans. They are less energetic and therefore can be a great match for a working family or a senior citizen. They are also likely to be vaccinated and spayed/neutered. However, they are more likely to have serious health issues than a younger animal and may need a more specific diet.
November is Senior Pet Month. It’s a good opportunity to celebrate pets who are a little older. Shelters around the world are focusing on getting their older pets adopted in this month. If you are thinking about adopting a pet in the near future, please consider giving a senior pet a new lease on life.
