Pet Longevity is attributed to 70% to lifestyle and 30% to genetics. Up to 90% of diseases in pets are due to the degenerative processes associated with aging. Research validates the fact that optimal nutritional supplementation can help deter and slow the pet aging process, stay active longer and enhance his or her quality of life.
Balanced pet diets are essential, but alone they cannot provide your dog or cat with the optimal levels of nutrients his body needs. In fact, for example, just to obtain adequate levels of vitamin E, your dog would need to eat 5000 calories-a-day. Consuming this many calories is detrimental to your dog’s health and could quickly lead to obesity and several other canine and feline health-related problems. Pet Longevity
Signs of Pet Aging in Dogs and Cats:
To determine whether or not a pet is old, it’s important to distinguish between chronological and biological age. Chronological age is determined by the year in which your pet was born or the number of candles on your pet’s birthday cake.
Pet Aging begins at maturity; when your pet’s body’s systems start to slow down-when cells deteriorate faster than the body can repair them. It is a progressive decline in mental and physical functioning and appearance.
Signs of pet aging occur slowly. Their detection requires a pet owners close observation and keen eye.
