Are you a Pet Boomer?

Forty-five million strong, the “Pet Boomer” generation (cats and dogs age seven and older) are experiencing many of the same health problems as their “Human Boomer” counterparts. Yet, most pet owners fail to notice these signs, therefore missing the opportunity to pro-actively manage their pets’ health to extend their four-legged friends' lives by years.

Here are a few resources for you to use to learn about the Pet Boomer population:

Check out The Merial/Merch Manual for Pet Health: This manual, authored by 200 veterinarians, is the first comprehensive guide to health care of all pets, especially the Pet Boomer population. This new Web site is a resource for all pet owners. It offers quizzes, facts, statistics on the aging pet population and is a terrific resource for pet owners dealing with traveling with a pet, pet poisons and emergencies.
