Welcome to the first episode of GNA's Pet Professors, helping you interact with and medically care for your pets.

If you have a dog or cat, they are members of your family. They are your friends. And as a pet owner myself, I know it is your goal to help your pets live a long, healthy and happy life. That is where GNA's Pet Professors come in. Every month, we will be talking with the experts at VCA Animal Hospitals to give you the information you need to properly care for and interact with your furry friends. Here, in our first episode, I caught up with Dr. Lara Patrick at VCA Shaker Animal Hospital in Latham to learn about Senior Wellness and how to care for your pets as they get older.
