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. Although breed mainly determines the maturity of pets, nutrition and environment also play a role in how fast a pet ages.

Just as humans, when pets grow old they face many health issues which require special attention and care. They might face dental issues, arthritis and degenerative diseases. 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. It may also improve their state of mind and keep them happy.

Caring for senior pets can be done by pet care or veterinary professionals. However, learning the essentials on how to care for your senior pets will help you cut down on the cost to hire professionals and to strengthen your bond with your pets. It could also be the qualification that helps you embark on a successful career in pet care or veterinary. This Diploma in care of the senior pets – level 3 will teach you how to identify the maturity of pets and the behavioural changes in senior pets. You will also get to look over at the special considerations for senior cats. You will be introduced to mobility and pain issues that plague senior pets.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
