A NEW PET—-THE ENERGY BOOST FOR THE OLDER PET

for putting new life in an old German Shepherd than a feline or canine playmate. Think about it. If you were dropped off on another planet
tomorrow, with no one of your own kind to communicate with, you’d soon be desperate for human contact. Your dog or cat may not even know what
he’s missing, but if you provide him with the opportunity to make a new animal friend, he may discover that life has new interest and that each
day is exciting.

THE ANIMAL GENERATION GAP
Older pets, like older people, have a tendency to become less active as the years pass, and even the spur of a terrific exercise regime many
not solve the problem of getting them up and about. A ball of energy like a new puppy or kitten could very well be the answer. It’s almost
impossible for an old pet to say no when a young companion is determined to play. And even if the elderly pet isn’t as wildly
enthusiastic as you would like him to be, he’ll still get a boost from the fact he has to spend a good portion of the day ducking and dodging
the newcomer.

A new pet in the household can be a lifesaver. He can literally retard the aging process of a geriatric pet and add life to the animal’s later
years. When stimulated to run and jump and play ball by someone of his own kind, the most sedentary and lethargic pet will get up and carry on
like an adolescent.
