Cats may need a little extra help as they age
Older cats make great pets. Some people specifically adopt older cats because they tend to enjoy hanging out at home more. There are a few steps you can take to ensure your older cat is happy and healthy during their twilight years.
Surgical procedures on older cats may carry a risk of causing other health problems, so they should be considered carefully. Your vet will carry out a pre-operative assessment to check your cat's overall health, and can advise on any specific concerns.
Time to call the vet?
Many health conditions affecting older cats are treatable, so call your vet if you notice any change in your cat's behaviour. Treatment can improve your cat's quality of live and could extend their life.
