Time flies when you're having fun and that is certainly the case for our loyal companions. Dogs are considered seniors when they reach approximately 7 years of age while cats enter their retirement years at around 11-years-old. At this stage, pets require specialized care to maintain their quality of life and to prevent illnesses and injuries. To learn how to take care of your older pet, reach out to us at 519-969-7390.
