When is your Pet considered Senior?

This is a difficult to define topic as some pets (like humans) will still be young and active at very old age, whereas others seem to deteriorate quicker. All sorts of influences contribute to these differences, but size, pedigree and popularity of the pedigree surely are contributing factors. Running this special Awareness Month however needs some structure and we therefore apply the following guidelines in our Clinic

  • Cats 11 years and above are considered Senior in our clinic
  • Giant breed dogs are considered senior at the age of 5 and above
  • Large breed dogs are considered senior around 7 years of age
  • Small & Miniature dogs are considered senior around around 9 years of age

Even for our small mammal section we run a Senior Pet Program with dedicated check ups for them;

  • Rabbits as of 5 years of age
  • Guinea Pigs as of 4 years of age
  • Hamsters from 15 months upwards are considered seniors
