The Health of Your Pet

The health of your pet can change rapidly as he or she ages.

Beginning at around age 7, many dogs enter their senior years. At this stage, dogs often begin to develop diseases common to their senior-human counterparts, such as diabetes, heart disease, hypothyroidism, kidney disease and cancer. In fact, one out of ten pets that appears healthy, has an underlying disease.1

First, identify your dog’s real age using this chart. Then, discuss ways to keep your pet healthy with your veterinarian. [Find out what to expect from a senior dog checkup.]
