Welcoming a pet in your golden years

Pets can be a great source of joy and companionship, no matter how old you are. Studies have shown that particularly as we age, pets can provide important social support that reduces loneliness and improves quality of life. 

If you’re wondering if a pet is right for you in your golden years, here are some factors to consider.

Keep your pet protected with a heartworm preventative

One of the easiest ways to keep your pet healthy and protected from a deadly disease is to give them a heartworm preventative year-round. 

Heartworm can be fatal to dogs, cats, and ferrets — and treatment isn’t easy. Thankfully, it’s 100 percent preventable. Learn more about Heartworm Infection and how you can keep your pet protected.
