When is my pet a senior?
- A senior pet is defined per individual species and breed.
- A cat becomes a senior around 8 years of age.
- A small breed dog (less than 20 pounds) is a senior at 9 years of age.
- A medium breed dog (20-40 pounds) is a senior at 8 years of age.
- A larger breed dog (40+ pounds) is a senior at 7 years of age.
Old age is not a disease. It is a natural condition of life.
There are natural consequences of a long, fulfilling life. Normal metabolic processes produce a damaging substance within the body that, over time, breakdown organ, joint, and brain function. These free radicals can be more adequately combatted with supplemental therapies called nutraceuticals.
