Senior Cat Care

Monitoring your senior cat for signs of ageing is important. Senior cats are at risk of developing many health conditions.

What are the stages of a senior cat’s life?

We consider cats to be seniors after the age of 7. Signs of ageing can include sleeping more, decreased mobility, weight loss and increase or decrease in water consumption. The best way to monitor your cat for signs of ageing is by coming in for a yearly wellness examination.

My senior cat is losing weight, what can I do?

Weight loss is often a symptom of certain diseases. If you are concerned that your cat has been losing weight, they should be seen by a veterinarian. Your cat may require blood tests to determine the cause of weight loss. If detected early we can often slow the progression of many diseases.

How can I care for my senior cat?

Several things can be done to care for your senior cat such as providing a warm and comfortable place to sleep, easy access to food and water and ensuring that their litter box is easy for them to get in and out. An annual wellness exam is critical for monitoring your senior cat’s health. Please contact us to discuss your cat’s individual needs and other options that are available to enrich your cat’s daily life.
