PetMeds® Celebrates Senior Pets With “Fur-ever Young” Giveaway

PetMeds® is hosting a giveaway through November to celebrate Senior Pet Month and help pet parents adapt to their cat or dog’s changing needs. All pet parents are invited to enter the “Fur-ever Young” giveaway for a chance to win prizes for their cat or dog.

November is Senior Pet Month, dedicated to raising awareness of the perks of adopting a senior cat or dog as well as the importance of proper care and an active lifestyle to extend their happy, healthy years.

While every pet ages differently, a cat is generally considered a senior by the time they are ten years old. Dogs enter their senior years between five and ten years old, with smaller breeds aging more slowly than large dogs.

Over the past forty years, the average life expectancies of cats and dogs have nearly doubled. Pets are living longer due to higher standards in care and nutrition and advancements in veterinary science. It is not unusual for senior cats and dogs to live to celebrate their tenth, fifteenth, and even twentieth birthdays.

To keep middle-aged and senior pets in their best health for as long as possible, proper veterinary care is essential. Annual or twice-yearly wellness visits can catch illness early. Early intervention can be highly beneficial for common conditions seen in senior pets including kidney disease, diabetes, dental disease, and osteoarthritis.

Most cats and dogs will develop osteoarthritis in at least one joint in their lifetime. Pet parents can prevent or slow the progression by giving joint supplements at any age. For pets with osteoarthritis there are many effective pain management options including physical therapy, medications, holistic remedies, laser therapy, and acupuncture, making it possible for cats and dogs to stay active, healthy, and comfortable throughout their senior years.

While nobody likes to think about their pet getting older, the senior years are a truly special time. Cats and dogs become more settled down, more relaxed, and ready to enjoy an even deeper bond with their favorite humans.

PetMeds® is celebrating senior pets by giving away Special Senior Support Prizes Packs containing Vetoquinol Pill Wraps, NaturVet Digestive Enzymes Plus Probiotic Powder, and HomeoPet Anxiety Relief every Friday in November. Dog prize packs will also include Zesty Paws Senior Advanced 11-in-1 Bites, and Cat prize packs will also include Soft VitaChews for Cats.

  1. My little buddy Tito, my 13 year old Yorkie is still doing great with the majority of his health and well-being. He eats well and still has bouts of playful energy. He has been such a blessing to me and I’m so thankful he’s still with me! I am praying I have many more years to come of his companionship and love!

  2. Abbie is a 15 year old chihuahua mix. She is our family’s first adopted fur baby. Originally she has been adopted from shelter because my older stepdaughter begged us for 2 years to get a dog. Abbie was 2 and half months old then. The same day we brought her home, she picked me as her human mommy 😜. Make the story short, she is my first fur baby and will be forever.
    Thank you Pet Meds for being beside us all these years.

  3. Gracie is a wonderful 50 pound Pudel Pointer (I’m calling that breed the original “doodle” ) the Germans bred Standard Poodles with English Pointers to create a pointing retriever for mostly game bird hunting. She is 14 years 7 months old and is doing very well except for her hind legs which were operated on at 7 years. Her buddy hunting partner, Burleigh, sadly died last December, but since then she has bloomed into being THE dog in our life. She loves to walk, runs a little bit; she basically takes me for a walk, knows where she wants to go and how long she wants to walk. She is loving, sweet and the center of our lives. May she live forever!

  4. My pitbull Pheobe is 13 going on 14 she was a rescue that I took in about 3 years ago but I feel like I’ve had her her entire life we bonded the first moment that our eyes met I loved her just as much as she loved me here lately she’s starting to show her age more she has a lot of skin conditions which I find or have later found that are very common with pit bulls they give me costly at times but she’s so worth it I truly wished I had gotten her years ago I feel like a lot of the problems that she has are because the people before me didn’t address any of her skin and ear issues and let it go and now she has something called cauliflower ear from yeast and there’s nothing we can do about that she can’t hear out of that ear and she has cataracts on the same side so she can’t see out of that side from her eye but with all of that said she is the happiest most loved dog in the world and I can honestly say she’s the best pet that I’ve ever had I’ve had three wonderful years with her I hope I get at least three more.

  5. Shasta Marie is a 17-year-old Papillon. She has “raised” six grandchildren, a Great Dane, and numerous other “critters”. She is the most loving fur baby I’ve ever had.

  6. Brooklyn is my sweet, loving 10 years young pit bull mix who loves her yard and walks. She lives with 2 kitty cats: 1- brother Mcgyver and 1 sister Louise. Louise jumps out and scares Brooklyn all the time, so much for mean pit bulls! Brooklyn has allergy and thyroid problems that are being managed. She is my best friend and would be lost without her.

  7. Thankyou for your wonderful customer service and patience through the years.

  8. Last year on New Years eve I found my Joy She is a 13 yo Schipperke with the sweetest disposition. She is very sweet and smart as well. She is 12 lbs of delightful doggy.
    She has the sweetest face with a personality to match. She also is on borrowed time because she has congestive heart failure stage five.
    Joy gives love and happiness to everyone she meets. My life is filled with Joy and love.

  9. I have two ShihTzu’s both still doing well. One is a rescue aged 12 yrs. The other is 11 yrs. They are my loving companions.

  10. Cody Cat which I inherited when my mother passed away 12 years ago. He ended up having cancer at age 21. He passed away about 1 month ago. It has been extremely lonely without Cody Cat. I know he is now with my mother and pleased to see her.

    I now only have my large white dog. 7 years ago, I could hear something under my mobile home gasping for air. It sounded dreadful, like an animal that was about to pass away. I called a friend. She immediately stopped by to help me put the dog on a blanket and pull him out. He was barely breathing and feeling extreme pain. One of his paw toes was sticking straight up, the hip was messed up, and swollen, and he was very skinny. He was most definitely suffering some tremendous pain. I used a syringe to give him water and spoon-fed him some dog food. I gave him an aspirin,, a hug and talked to him. After about an hour, he stood up, but with a limp. He let out a loud yelp and kissed me. I got all teary-eyed and gave him another happiness hug. I just knew he was going to be okay. I gave him some more water and food, which he had no problem drinking and eating at all. I named him Chatters. He and my cat Cody were best buddies and always slept together. It is sad to say, I will no longer be ordering for my cat, however, ordering from PetMeds will continue for my Chatters.

  11. MY Toby is a 12 and a half year old golden retriever. He has been a truly great companion. He loves his showers with your oatmeal and aloe shampoo and conditioner. His joints are bothering him a bit more. We have him on Dasaquin Advanced, Missing Link for senior dogs and zukes treats. He weighs between 78 -81 pounds. In winter we use Mushers Secret on his paws before his walk. He eats Wellness dog food and we supplement with green beans, pumpkin and a dollop of canned food.
    We brush his teeth and he still has all of them.
    He has been pretty healthy up to now but may need to go on Rimadyl or an alternate soon. There are some new meds for joints that we need to investigate. Hope this helps others with goldens such great family dogs.

  12. I have such a precious dog he is 15. He still barks at me when I pull in the driveway making all the other 3 dogs bark but as soon as I step out the car he is smiling with tail wagging looking at me like “did I do good mom?” He wants just as much attention as all of them. Spike is definitely one of the funniest fur babies I’ve ever had!!!

  13. I have an 11 year old German Shepherd and two cats (12 and 17). I love senior pets and always adopt older animals. 🙂
