Pets Provide Big Benefits to Senior Homes

13th July, 2014
When the time comes to make a transition from home life to a senior living center, many seniors are searching for communities with a very specific stipulation: pets must be allowed to come with. It makes sense, of course, to want to bring your beloved pets along with you as you start the next chapter of your life, but what is perhaps most surprising about the trend is the increasing willingness of senior communities to allow pets on-site. Across the nation, senior communities are making strides toward becoming more pet friendly. Some have even installed special fencing to make things a little bit safer for the pets who do come aboard. In fact, several senior communities have added pet care to resident service plans, handling dog walking, vet visits, or taking care of the pet when the resident’s health prevents them from doing so. It’s all about ensuring both the incoming senior and his or her pets will feel safe, comfortable, and happy in their new home. There are big benefits to seniors keeping their pets in their lives. For starters, caring for pets provides seniors with a way to stay independent, gives them an opportunity for exercise and activity, and makes it a bit easier to handle the transition from a private home to a community. Pets are also an excellent way for seniors to make new friends in the community, encouraging socialization that might not otherwise occur. Overall, allowing pets in senior communities seems to yield a massive benefit with very few drawbacks.   Pets Provide Big Benefits to Senior Homes обновлено: January 25, 2017 автором: admin_1

Thank you for the peace of mind that my dog is not in discomfort anymore, thank you for this product being organic and good for our dog's ears, and seriously thank you for giving us an option to help our old pup with a product we can afford.
Melissa Block Demant
I used this product for my Boston last summer. Worked awesome. In 2 days, I've seen a improvement. Within 4 days, the infection was gone. My pit bull started having an issue with his right ear. It was bad. It was so infected. I used EcoEars twice a day and again it worked like magic!! 4 days have passed and you can't even tell he had an ear issue!! I will never use anything else. This stuff is fantastic!! Thank you Vet Organics for such an amazing product!!
Tina Neupauer
EcoEars is a great product! I used it in my Lacey's ears and we haven't had any problems since.
Bonnie Schweitzer
This stuff really works--after spending money at the vet @ $25 a bottle, it's saving me a lot of money.
