Senior pets refer to the pets that are too old and require special attention and care. Different pets mature differently based on their breed and genetics. It is very crucial to identify the age in which a specific pet reaches maturity in order to provide it with special attention and care.

They might also tend to get tired easily, find it difficult to run, walk or play and to find a comfortable position to sleep in. identifying the health issues and diseases in senior pets early on and treating them accordingly may greatly impact the overall health of senior pets and may help them live longer.
