Your senior cat

Ageing is an individual experience and every senior pet is unique. Cats enter their senior years at around 7 to 10 years of age – this is when it becomes important to monitor your cat more closely for common signs of ageing, such as changes to bodyweight and reduced activity. Tailored nutrition can help support senior pets through the changes associated with ageing. Book your next vet appointment to discuss what diet would best suit your senior cat.

How old age affects cats

Ageing in itself is not a disease, however ageing does represent some changes for your pet. Expected age related changes include loss of lean muscle mass, reduced activity, and impaired senses such as vision and smell. Ageing also means that your cat is more prone to disease, such as dental and kidney disease. Fortunately we can help manage some of these conditions through the nutrition we feed them.
