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 cover a few broad topics such as:
- When does a pet get “old” and signs of ageing
- Environmental enrichment
- Nutrition and feeding techniques
- Home modifications
- Exercise intolerance and regimes
- Grooming and handling
- Common signs of disease to look out for
- Quality of life scale
This class will be a mix of discussion and show-and-tell with opportunities for your questions.
