Everyone’s talking about how our dogs are living longer (overall living longer), but how about the cats? Dr. Zara Boland, research scientist a Purina, is focused on felines!
Listen HERE from my national Steve Dale’s Pet World show on how cats age….Dr. Boland talks about non-visible signs of aging in cats, a study that included 90 cats. As cat owners know, cats are masters of disguise and don’t typically tell us they’re not feeling well. We discuss how diet matters to help cats actually live longer (with excellent quality of life). We also discuss what to watch for when cats age, how pet owners might best tell something is wrong even if the cat isn’t ‘telling’ us.
Now, there’s even a later phase for senior cats, called “super senior” or geriatric cats and what some differences are between senior cats and “super senior” or geriatric cats.
