Cat Life Stages - Senior (7+ years old)

Senior Tips

Older cats tend to scratch less. That means it is extremely important to trim their nails on a regular basis.

As cats age, their hearing may be reduced. Have your vet check her ears to rule out parasites, infection or other medical problems that could interfere with hearing.

You may need to give your cat a little grooming help since he may not be flexible enough to do it himself anymore. Frequent brushing also prevents him from swallowing too much hair.

Senior Paws Wellness Plans

So how long do cats live? It varies. But, participating in a comprehensive care program like the Senior Paws wellness plan can make a long healthy life very possible. From thorough senior wellness exams to annual diagnostic testing for early detection, VCA puts senior cat care at the top of the list.
