What happens if I don’t know my pet’s age?
This is a common problem, especially if you have adopted a pet. That’s why, if you don’t know, providing your honest 'best guess' is fine. However, if you truly have no idea, ask your vet who should be able to estimate your pet's age based on an examination of certain physical characteristics.
