When discussing quality of life, our Veterinarians and Registered Veterinary Technicians can make you aware of some of the following questions as they pertain to your pet’s lifestyle:
Is your pet eating and drinking normally?
Can your pet relieve themself on his or her own? Are they continent (not having accidents)?
Can your pet move around on his or her own? Do they move without pain?
Is your pet interested in the family activities around him or her? Do they still enjoy being with you?
Are they sleeping more than usual? Do they sleep all the time?
The answers to these and other lifestyle questions are sometimes difficult to answer, subjective, and open to interpretation. Dr Wilkinson, Dr. Andrews and our team at Lockerby Animal Hospital can discuss these issues with you and help to guide you in making the best decisions for you and you pet.
