Your senior kitty needs a nutritionally balanced diet which is appropriate for his lifestage. Ask your veterinarian for nutritional supplements that will help reduce or retard the effects of the aging process.

Physical Activity

Design a fitness regimen appropriate for your senior pet. Remember that he is not as active as he once was, and excessive physical exertion may stress him out.
