Pets belonging to seniors age right along with them. They can get neglected, not on purpose, but neglect can happen because the senior isn’t able to provide the same level of care.
Unfortunately, we’ve seen neighbors, friends and family try and get the senior to give up their pet and occasionally the pets are taken against the person’s will. Yes, at times the pet would be better off at a shelter or in another home, but in many cases, just having a little extra help from a professional pet care provider could be the answer.
Do you have an elderly parent or relative that is struggling to take care of their pet?
We understand how important it is for an individual to keep their pet if at all possible. There’s proven health benefits of having pets such as lower blood pressure, lower stress, lower anxiety, companionship and purpose. Pets often help people live longer, happier and healthier lives.
How We Can Help Senior Pet Owners
Here are some examples that our pet care providers at sit-stay-play can assist you with:
- Pet bathing
- Ear cleaning
- Nail trims
- Litter box cleaning
- Vacuuming and minor cleaning around pet areas
- Walking/exercising pet
- Administering medicine
- Transporting pet to/from veterinarian
- Assisting with issues common with aging pets
Services to senior pet owners are individualized and are priced on the type of service and the length of time we’re with the pet and their owner. An initial consultation is required before services begin. Our goal is to have our services available to everyone so we operate on a sliding fee scale for individuals on limited income. Please contact us if you know a person that is unable to provide enough pet care due to age, limited mobility, medical issues or lack of resources.
