    Helping "Older" Companion Animals - And Exciting Announcement

    in Self Help

    The facts of life are that we are all getting "older" and that includes our companimals (companion animals.)  Some of us are buying into beliefs of what to expect with aging animals.  Yet there is a way to reverse those beliefs and help our companimals avoid some "aging" pitfalls that we thought were unavoidable.


    Are you worried about how to care for them and what may develop?  Maybe you've been told that because your cat, dog, horse, etc., is "older" that you should expect certain issues.  What if that doesn't have to be true?


    Join Susanne Peach, Animaleze® founder, as she discusses her groundbreaking work in helping animals live longer, happier, healthier lives.  She'll share success stories and offer suggestions and ideas that can change how we look at "aging" animals.   She has an almost 14-year-old Australian Shepherd mix dog who's been helping her become a pioneer in living and working with more "mature" animals.


    Susanne wants you to be a pioneer, as well.  Changing how everyone views "mature" animals, breaking all limitations, and preconceived notions of what's expected when your hamster, llama, parrot, etc., reach a certain age.


    If you have a younger companimal, tune in as you'll hear tips to help them, too.  


    (Some of the animals pictured here are 15 and 16.)


    Susanne is also going to be announcing some big news on some upcoming, first-time-ever events catered to you, the animal lover.

    Are seniors citizens 55 or older relevant?

    in Entertainment

    Our demograpic is between the ages of 19-49 Did you know the seniors are only targeted in ads about 1%. That is why the question. Are seniors citizens 55 or older relevant?


    Aging Population Around the World
    The increase in seniors is not just limited to the United States; there is also an aging population explosion in many other countries. According to the AoA, this increase can be attributed to ?advances in science, technology and medicine leading to reductions in infant and maternal mortality, infectious and parasitic diseases, occupational safety measures, and improvements in nutrition and education.?


    In 2000, approximately 605 million people were 60 years or older. By 2050, that number is expected to be close to 2 billion. At that time, seniors will outnumber children 14 and under for the first time in history.
