PetFirst Discusses the Benefits of Adopting a Senior Pet

Petfirst discusses the benefits of adopting a senior pet

SENIOR PET ADOPTION AND OWNERSHIP LEADS TO YEARS OF COMPANIONSHIP AND LOVE

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (November 28, 2013)– The care and well-being of Senior Pets is a growing concern across the United States.  PetFirst wants to help change this by discussing the list of benefits when it comes to adopting a Senior Pet.

  • Less destruction and more manners:  Senior dogs and cats have learned the lessons of life when it comes to getting in trouble.  A senior dog is less likely to chew shoes, or jump on guests having spent time living with a family.  Same with a cat, they are more socialized to life with people.
  • You can teach an old dog new tricks:  Senior dogs can focus their attention longer, and they are more eager to please their owner.  Obedience classes or working with a trainer will help you and your adult pet find ways to communicate and achieve the behavior you want.
  • Purebred adult pets are available:  If you have an attachment to a certain breed of dog or cat, chances are there is a breed rescue club who can assist you in finding that particular pet.  Search Facebook or ask around for rescue group information.
  • Companionship for senior adults:  The perfect match, a senior dog or cat for a senior adult who could use a daily companion.  Senior adults appreciate having a companion who will move at a slower pace and just enjoy time together.  A senior pet is more relaxed and doesn’t require the chasing, training or clean up.
  • Rescue each other:  Whether you rescue the pet or the pet rescues you, both of you are winners!  People who adopt senior pets feel a special sense of pride and purpose in opening their heart to a hard-to-place pet.  In exchange, older pets have a strong sense of loyalty and affection for their new owner.

There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to owning a senior pet as far as their health is concerned.  A lot like humans, older pets do face challenges with weight and mobility changes; diabetes; and kidney, heart or liver disease.

All of these conditions are manageable with proper care and instructions from your veterinarian.  To help reimburse up to 90% of these expenses, PetFirst offers pet health insurance policies that cover new diagnoses and treatment plans for senior pets.  To create your customized quote, visit www.petfirst.com or call 1-855-270-7387.

How It Works

Pet insurance reimburses pet owners for veterinary costs, and works very differently than human healthcare. Choose the coverage, deductible & premium to fit your budget & needs. Pay a predictable premium; when your pet gets sick or hurt, visit the same vet you always use.

You pay the vet, send us the bill & we reimburse you according to your personalized plan, with the fastest payment times in the industry. No worrying about whether it will fit in your budget. No arguing with your vet about following an insurance company’s benefits schedule. PetFirst lets you put your pet’s health first.
