Understanding the needs of the older cat is paramount to ensure correct nursing management of these patients within the veterinary practice.

It is important to recognise those conditions which can affect the ageing cat as well as the environmental modifications which are applicable to its wellbeing and normal functionality within the veterinary environment.

Client education should be at the forefront of the veterinary practice to aid in the management of the older patient and also help with the detection of early disease onset.
