Talk at Skaer Veterinary Clinic to focus on senior pet care
The special needs of senior pets will be the topic of a free discussion Saturday at Skaer Veterinary Clinic.
Veterinarian Janet Arnet will lead the session on senior wellness care, which will cover such topics as:
▪ At what age does a pet become a senior?
▪ What are the signs of pain?
▪ What health problems can affect older pets?
▪ What are the common signs of disease in older pets?
▪ What do I need to do to keep my senior pet healthy?
The discussion starts at 1:15 at the clinic, 404 S. Edgemoor. For more information or to register, call 316-683-4641, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the clinic’s front desk.
