Three Ways to Show Your Senior Pet You Care For National Senior Pet Month 

November is Senior Pet Month. As such, it’s the perfect time to go the extra mile to demonstrate just how much your pet means to you. To ensure your pet ages gracefully, follow our tips to support your pet during this transitional period in their life. Here are three ways to show your senior pet you care during National Senior Pet Month.  

Enhance Their Environment 

Aging pets have a higher risk of developing various health conditions, from arthritis to cancer, and more. As such, it’s important to address your pet’s mobility challenges and prioritize their comfort as their body begins to change. To help your senior pet feel at ease and cozy in their environment, you may consider adding ramps or stairs to help your pet reach various surfaces. You may also incorporate carpeting, area rugs, and other types of non-slick features to reduce the slipperiness of otherwise challenging surfaces for your pet. 

Prioritize Their Comfort 

As pets age, their need for nursing care increases. If your pet can no longer make it upstairs to snuggle in bed with you, it’s time to review your options. We recommend purchasing a plush, orthopedic bed for your pet to ensure they are comfortable and secure on the main level of your home. This will help you sleep without guilt while ensuring your pet is safe and cozy. 

Pay Attention To Their Grooming Needs 

Senior pets may lounge around more often than they once did. As a result, skin sores are more common. To mitigate tender joints and sore spots, be sure to shift your pet into various positions as they relax throughout the day. Additionally, if your pet has trouble with incontinence or accidents, it’s essential to keep them clean and dry. Monitor your pet regularly and wash or wipe them down daily to avoid infections or urine scald.
