We had one of our feline pals in yesterday. We always love having Bandit in the office. His sister came too and was a little shy. Bandit made it clear to her there was nothing to worry about as he strutted around the room and had a nice visit with Dr. Hardy.

Here's more about adopting a senior pet from Andrea:
Harlee is the newest member of my family. At thirteen years of age, she found herself at a senior dog rescue after her owner was no longer able to care for her. After the rescue updated her vet care (including a dental cleaning), she was ready to find her forever home; and I’m so lucky I was chosen to provide that for her. Caring for senior pets can be so rewarding. They have such sweet souls, and make the best companions, and Harlee is no exception. She loves going on hikes and adventures with her big brother, as well as napping on the couch afterwards :)

Have you considered adopting a senior pet? It takes a special person to take on the challenge but it can be very rewarding. Our RVT Andrea adopted a senior girl a few months ago!

Does your senior pet need some extra care? We'd love to share with our pet loving community the extra steps you take to ensure your pet is comfortable.

Karen's senior cat Noodle is 18 years old. She has an area to eat that is easier for her to get to than the other cats in the household and her litter box is also close by her preferred lounging area. Noodle gets an appetite stimulant when needed and at times needs some probiotics to aid in her digestion. Noodle has been on the same prescription diet since she was a kitten and it is the only food which keeps her digestive health in check. She is also in renal failure and it is important to keep her hydration levels up. She gets subcutaneous injections of fluids at home, has many water bowls (she prefers the dog's bowl though) and loves her 'soup' (a nutritional supplement called hydracare). This old gal gets lots of love from Karen's husband and their kids.

DID YOU KNOW: in the early stages of disease there is often no noticeable signs? Compromised organ function can occur before clinical signs are evident.

Physical exams and blood work can help us detect changes. Early disease detection in the mature pet can result in earlier medical and nutritional treatment, which will impact the quality of your pet’s life.

November is Senior Pet Month.
Any pet over the age of 7 years is considered a senior.
Large breed dogs over the age of 5 years are considered senior as well.

Although age is not a disease, it is a progressive process where certain conditions become more prevalent. These include: physical and metabolic changes, joint disease, renal disease, muscle atrophy, cognitive and behavioural changes, thyroid disease, and skin and coat changes.

We are able to assess your senior pets health at the office through semi annual physical exams, blood work and urinalysis.

As your pet ages, their cognitive health can decline. To prevent or reduce cognitive dysfunction, encourage regular exercise and mental stimulation, such as playing fetch and offering puzzle toys, and ask your veterinarian if your pet would benefit from a senior pet diet and/or supplements. #NationalSeniorPetMonth

Halloween is fast approaching! Some of these new pets might have not yet experienced Halloween with trick or treaters 👻.

Create a safe place for your pet on Halloween night that is away from all of the commotion. Have their pet bed and comfort items in this area.

You may also consider asking trick or treaters to avoid using the doorbell by hanging a sign outside.

Using white noise can also help filter out unfamiliar noises on Halloween night.

Finally, take your pet out for their evening walk after trick or treating is over.
