Loss Of Appetite In Senior Pets

It is usual for senior cats and dogs to lose their appetite as their bodies experience a natural decline. As a pet owner, it is vital to keep an eye on how much your pet eats. Loss in appetite leads to weight loss and may indicate an underlying health issue. If your pet already has a medical problem, eating less (or not eating at all) can indeed aggravate your pet’s health condition. Dental problems may also affect your pet’s sense of taste and may find the food unpalatable. There are ways to make your senior pet to eat more, such as warming the food or introducing new flavors. However, it is best to speak with your pet doctor in coming up with a diet plan, so your pet continuously receives the nutrition it needs. Senior pets need adequate nutrition to help them prevent developing certain diseases or slow down the effects of existing illnesses.

Your senior pet will benefit from regular health and wellness checks at your animal hospital Pembroke Pines, FL.
