  • Make a donation in your senior pet's name to your favorite pet charity.
  • Treat your senior pet to an orthopedic pet bed to ease aching, arthritic joints.
  • Learn how to do therapeutic massage on your pet to improve his circulation and blood flow.
  • Book a senior wellness exam for your pet's 7th birthday, a year or two earlier if you have a giant breed like a Great Dane.
  • Embrace that old age is a stage of life, not a disease.
