Geriatric Cat Care

As cats enter their senior years  (i.e. seven years or older), like humans, they will slow down and become more prone to age-related ailments . They may also suffer from painful joints and may not be able to jump or groom themselves like they used to. Kidney and thyroid disease are also common and may result in overweight issues. Dental problems may affect their appetite; hence the cats will start to lose weight as they age.

The course will cover : 

  • The nutrition needs of senior cats
  • Methods to calm your senior cats 
  • Understanding of common diseases such as stiffness, muscle loss, as well as kidney and other types of possible organ failure and their related treatments

Fee :
