During ageing, dogs and cats undergo numerous biochemical and physiological changes. In-depth knowledge about these changes is key to better understand the challenges of veterinary geriatrics that face owners and veterinarians, and consequently to improve the health and welfare of geriatric dogs and cats. An online survey was conducted among 37 veterinarians, 93 owners of senior pets and 80 owners of young to adult pets in Canada.
