3. Visit the Vet if your pet is elderly or you suspect has an illness! Elderly pets should be examined by a veterinarian and have blood work as close as possible to before you leave for your trip. It’s our strong belief at Sarah’s Pet Sitting that all elderly pets deserve palliative care. Often there are many non – invasive ways to keep your pet comfortable and healthy as they age. Untreated illnesses such as kidney disease, diabetes, thyroid conditions, urinary tract problems, dental disease and many others cause your pets considerable discomfort. Often the signs of discomfort can be overlooked by well intending pet owners. Please discuss this topic in detail with a veterinarian. In Cheshire and Southington, Sarah’s Pet Sitting Recommends Mt. Lore Animal Hospital
and Animal Medical Care of CT.
