Senior Dog Care

Senior Dog Care at Sydney Animal HospitalAt seven, your dog is considered senior

Dogs and cats over seven years of age are senior citizens in human years. Everyone gets older, and our best friends age faster than we do.

How old is your dog in human terms?

Time flies when you’re having fun. But at seven years young, your dog is nearing his or her 50th year.

  • At 10 years old dogs have reached retirement age.
  • At 12 years old dogs have hit 77 in human years.

Your dog’s age in human years (age varies based on weight and care).

Our special friends need special care in their older years. Note: This table is an approximation. As a rule, larger breeds age faster than smaller breeds.

As with humans, the need for health care increases with age in dogs and cats too. Like us, animals suffer from aches and pains related to ageing – see signs to look out for - but veterinarians at Sydney Animal Hospitals can help you ensure that ageing isn’t a pain for your best friend.
