How to Help Your Senior Cat Thrive

Do you have an aging cat on your hands? Keep your elderly feline companion healthy and happy so that she enjoys her golden years! Below, your Plano, TX vet offers three easy tips to do just that:

Great Diet

All aging cats should be fed a specially formulated senior diet, which is made with just the right ingredients for your older cat’s nutritional needs. Ask your vet to recommend a great choice, and also be sure to ask about the portion that your cat needs.

Fun Toys

Cats need exercise, even older ones! Provide your companion with plenty of fun toys to let her entertain herself. Catnip toys are always a hit, but even a simple string dangled in front of Fluffy’s face will likely do the trick! Try to get your pet moving on a daily basis to help stave off obesity.

Napping Spots

Cats always love napping; your senior companion probably sleeps now more than ever! Make sure she has plenty of soft, warm beds to relax in throughout her golden years.
