Cats are complex creatures, and when they're not feeling well, it can sometimes be difficult for pet owners to tell. That's because cats, like most animals, have instincts that cause them to withdraw and hide their suffering in order to protect themselves. Still, if your cat is showing any of these "red flags," it may be time to schedule an appointment with your veterinarian, as your feline companion may be suffering in silence.

Get to know some of the issues faced by senior dogs that you may want to be aware of so that you can take the best possible care of your senior dog now and for the rest of their life.
