Tell Tail Signs of Ageing

Age-related changes start small

Just like with people, age can creep up slowly on pets. Pet parents might not realise their furry friend is starting to display some age-related changes.

Have you noticed these signs?

If your 7+ year old pet does not show any signs of ageing then ask your vet about Science PlanTM Youthful Vitality - cutting-edge food science to fight the effects of ageing for healthy senior pets.

If you see four or more of the signs of ageing then go to your vet and ask about Prescription DietTM k/dTM + Mobility – combining our best science to manage geriatric pets.
