What are common signs of aging in pets?

Common signs of aging may include decreased energy levels, changes in eating behaviour, decreased mobility, unexplained weight loss or gain, dental issues, alterations in coat texture, diminished vision or hearing, and the development of chronic conditions such as arthritis. However, these signs can vary from one animal to another. Regular veterinary examinations are crucial to identify these changes and develop a care plan tailored to the specific needs of your aging pet.
