Common age related conditions in dogs:
- reduced metabolism and changing nutritional needs
- dental disease
- lumps and bumps
- loss of hearing and/or visual impairment
- kidney disease
- heart disease
Your dog may not be able to tell you when something is wrong. In fact, animals have evolved to hide signs of illness until it is quite advanced. See "signs to look out for" to learn if your dog is exhibiting any of these signs.
Veterinarians at Sydney Animal Hospitals are trained to identify and address age-related problems in pets. By identifying these problems at an early stage they can be managed to ensure that senior pets enjoy an excellent quality of life.
