Ask the Vet: Older animals develop special health needsQ: Just like older people, older animals have special health needs. What are the most common health issues that our pets face as they get older? Animals undergo many of the same aging changes as humans, including kidney disease, arthritis and changes in vision and hearing. Most pet owners are astute when it comes to their pets’ habits, and subtle changes in appetite, social interaction, sleep patterns or potty habits can all be indicators of age-related changes.
