[Giveaway] Celebrate National Senior Pet Month

November marks the month-long observance of National Senior Pet Month, a time to raise awareness of adoptable senior pets in need of homes. To help spread the word, PetMeds® is giving away Special Senior Support Packages to 8 lucky winners.

November has most Americans thinking about family, making it a great time to celebrate National Senior Pet Month. Whether pet owners have a beloved senior cat or dog at home or are thinking of adding a grizzled addition to their family, PetMeds® is raising awareness and shining a light on misconceptions with a month-long giveaway.

Most people looking to adopt a pet tend to look for puppies and kittens, while senior pets in shelters get overlooked. Senior pets are often seen as set in their ways and less likely to adapt to their new family. The truth is, older cats and dogs have a lot of love to give, and there are many perks to adopting a senior.

Senior cats and dogs tend to sleep more than their younger counterparts, having long surpassed the wild puppy or kitten stage. Adopters of senior pets can look forward to quiet evenings on the couch with a snoozing dog or purring cat curled up in their lap.

Older pets also have a predictable personality. Shelters and humane societies often document the adoptee’s history with kids, other pets, and different environments to ensure the pet is a good match for the potential adopter.

The biggest concern pet parents may have about adopting a senior is the heartbreaking perception that they will fall in love with the animal, only to have to say goodbye to them after a few months. Fortunately, domestic animals are living longer as we see improvements in nutrition, veterinary medicine, and public knowledge about pet preventative care.

Cats and dogs are considered senior pets at around seven years of age, and for most, that’s when their life is just beginning. It’s not uncommon for pets to stay active and healthy for another seven years, or even longer.

In celebration of National Senior Pet Month, all cat and dog parents are invited to enter the PetMeds® Senior Pet Month Giveaway for a chance to win a Special Senior Support Package that will include Animal Eye Defense, Vetri-DMG, and Super Pure Omega 3. The Special Senior Support Packages will also include Feliway for cat parents, and Adaptil for dog parents. One lucky grand prize winner will receive a couch cover – for those quiet evenings on the couch with your special snoozing senior.

The PetMeds® Senior Pet Month Giveaway runs from Monday November 1, 2021, through Tuesday, November 30 2021. Everyone who enters from 12:01 AM Eastern Time (“ET”) November 1, 2021 to November 30 2021 at 11:59 PM ET is eligible to win.

    My furball, Mitty….short for Mehitabel….turns 12 next week. She is a sweet kitty who now favors more naps than playtime and loves to be in my lap or just curled in a box close by . Her jumps are more hesitant and fearful but the love and the purrs are still there. With her obsessive eating disorder under control, she is living the golden kitty years in a pretty healthy state.

  6. All 3 of my doggies get supplements in their meals , plenty of water and our love❤️ Our 9 year old Yorkie just was diagnosed with diabetes late this summer so he gets his insulin shots twice a day too.

  7. My little dog Diego weighs less than 7 pounds, but he used to fearlessly bound up and down stairs, into chairs and on the bed. Now, at 14 years, I carry him to those places in one arm. He has his own little stairs at the foot of my bed and burrows under my covers to snuggle between my legs.

  8. Octavia loves her joint chews!

  9. 3 senior Bassets, every day is a blessing

  10. We have a couple of dogs that can barely walk now, so we’re always helping them to stand up off the floor all the time!

  12. Misty has trouble walking , and I give her joint chews daily to ease her aching.

  14. I help my 16 year old Mini Dachshund by lifting him on and off beds and couches, following him around in the yard, breaking and cutting his food into small pieces as he doesn’t have many teeth, and spoiling him every way that I possibly can. We LOVE him So much!!

  15. I help 16 year old Jasmine into bed every night….she does not care for dog stairs.

  16. Wally dog gets frequent short walks and much love and attention. He recently suffered a stroke and I will say the need for high caloric supplements exists…he had a difficult time eating for the first week and I could only find 1 nutritional supplement available.

    Nutritional and holistic are so important.

  18. I have 2 senior pups. Butch is 15 and Bitsy is 14 years old. They are half siblings, sharing a mom, a year apart. Botsy is blind and has kidney disease. She is on a special diet and medication. Whenever she lays down urine flows from her relaxed bladder. We always have plenty of wet sheets under her and protecting anything she lays on. We decided to not diaper her because she hates that. Butch is doing great. He no longer jumps up on anything, being blind, deaf and a little arthritic, but he is a happy pup. We leave the furniture in the same place so that they can find their way around. We love them!

  19. I have a brother and sister half-Siamese cats that are almost 17 years old. Sampson has a very sensitive digestive system and cannot eat anything with red dye in it He also suffers from PICA, so I have to make sure no small non-food articles are left within reach. He and Snuggles are still fairly active, but occasionally need help up to surfaces to which they used to be able to jump.

  20. I give my 11 year old American Eskimo Loki lots of massages. I hold him and pray over him. We also practice Doga, and afterwards, he gets a tasty hip n joint treat.

  21. My almost 17 year old cocker spaniel is on arthritis medicine as well as joint supplements and I help her up and down the stairs.

  22. Boo loves his joint supplements!

  23. I have two senior dogs. Booboo who just turned 16 and Oscar who will be 17 next month. Booboo had spinal surgery a few years ago and needs to be carried to travel up or down stairs, sometimes he slips and slides on the floor so we got him special booties that give him traction. He also has several beds spread out around the house so he never has travel far to find a comfy place to lounge. Oscar went blind a few years ago so we got him a special hallo to wear for when he walks freely in the house so that he does not get hurt running into things. Oscar feels the safest in his doggy play pen with his calming spray and calming heart beat plush toy. They take supplements to help keep them spry . They love to get outside for some adventure but with Booboo’s past spinal condition and Oscars arthritis we got them a double seated dog stroller so they can ride in style for when they get to tired or are having issues with walking. They also love to get light therapy treatments, which I give them to help them de-stress and or relieve any aches or pains they may have. They are great guys. I feel so lucky to have them. Though they have some health issues I’m thankful for all of their energy and affection.

  24. Burton gets dasuquin every other day. And since he has trouble jumping on sit on his favorite bay window to wait for mom or dad to get home or to watch squirrels, I lift him up and down from it whenever he sits looking up at it.

  25. I help my senior pet by giving monthly allergy injections, special allergy food/treats, oatmeal and medicated baths plus a topical spray for itching. Koti did not get allergies until he was 7 yrs old.
