What’s it all about?

“Am I doing enough for them?” This is a question we often ask ourselves regarding enhancing the quality of life of our senior “fur babies”. Learn from a Veterinary Nurse how to make their retirement years more rewarding, comfortable and enjoyable for you to spend together.

What will we cover?

This class will be a mix of a lecture with show-and-tell. We will be covering a few broad topics including:

  • When does a pet get “old” and signs of aging
  • Environmental enrichment
  • Nutrition & feeding techniques
  • Home modifications
  • Exercise intolerance and regimes
  • Grooming & handling
  • Common signs of disease to look out for
  • Quality of life scale
  • Q&A

Who will be teaching?
