Regular Appointments are Important for Elderly Pets


Just like an older person would be more susceptible to illness, an older dog would be too. Gresham Animal Hospital urges you to take your elderly pets in for check ups regularly, especially if they show any of the following signs: 

  • Lack of energy or an unusual increase in activity
  • Finding it difficult to walk or stand up
  • Loss of appetite
  • Drinking or going to the toilet more than usual
  • Toileting in unusual places
  • Bad breath or one with an unusual scent
  • Lumps or swellings
  • Vomiting or diarrhoea
  • Seeming disorientated or bumping in to things
