We consider pets that are


or older to be senior-aged pets. At this stage in their lives, dogs and cats are more susceptible to contracting health issues. Early detection can help prevent disease and minimize suffering of an older pet.

Dog Years vs Human Years

7 dog years = 44 – 56 years
10 dog years = 56 – 78 years
15 dog years = 76 – 96 years
20 dog years = 96 – 120 years

Cat Years vs Human Years

7 cat years = 54 years
10 cat years = 63 years
15 cat years = 78 years
20 cat years = 97 years

Veterinary Care for Senior Pets

Because pets age more quickly than humans, we recommend more frequent veterinary visits at what we may consider a younger age. We recommend senior-aged pets to visit a veterinarian for a comprehensive wellness exam and screenings at least twice a year. Frequent routine visits allow the veterinarian to detect and treat health issues as early as possible. Common health issues seen in older pets include:

  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Liver disease
  • Certain types of cancer

We recommend bringing your senior pet to our facility at least twice a year for head-to-tail examinations and evaluations, vaccinations and lab tests. Routine visits to Sunset allow our veterinary team to stay on top of your senior pet’s health and keep you in the know about any potential ailments.


Regular veterinary check-ups are some of the easiest ways to ensure the health of your mature pet, but there are a few other things you can do to keep your senior pet happy and healthy, including:

  • Mobility Aids – Senior pets may not be able to get around as easily as they used to. You can provide assistance by placing ramps for access to high areas like beds and furniture and adding rugs for improved traction on slippery flooring.
  • Exercise — Exercise is just as important for senior pets as it is for younger pets. It keeps them mobile, boosts their mood and impedes weight gain.
  • Comfortable Bedding — If you haven’t already done so, consider providing your senior pet with a soft, supportive bed for naptime and bedtime.
  • Healthy Diet – Aging pets should eat food that is tailored to their age group for optimal digestion and caloric intake.
  • Careful Monitoring – Keep a lookout for changes in your pet’s behavior and mood, as they may indicate a health condition. Pay special attention to eating, drinking, sleeping and bathroom patterns. Make sure to let your vet know about any changes
